Sunset Guiding and Outfitting trips all begin from our Panther River Retreat, Alberta's "Great Rocky Mountain Escape". We are just a short drive from the Town of Sundre in west-central Alberta, west on the Coal Camp Road. Relax and enjoy an exhilarating horseback adventure in the spectacular Alberta Rocky Mountains. Ride through the panoramic scenery of the high mountain meadows and crystal clear waters. Each guest, whether 8 or 80, will be mounted on gentle, well broke horses, suitable for all ages and ability. All rides will be guided by friendly, knowledgeable guides.

Kline Lake is a wilderness paradise with beautiful still running water.Depart throughout the day from Sunset's Panther River Retreat and ride the winding scenic trails through open grassy meadows along the rushing waters of the Panther River and high timbered ridges in the deep foothills, to the calm, serene beauty of Kline Lake (pictured left). An abundance of wildlife and mountain flowers provide excellent photography opportunities. These Half Day Trail Rides begin at 10 am and end at about 1 pm.

Full Day Trail Riders depart from the Panther River Retreat at 10 am and explore the exquisite scenic foothill trails between the Burnt Timber Creek and the Red Deer River. Enjoy a box lunch or wiener roast along the trail to hold you over on your six hour journey.

If you don't want to ride yourself, hop in our wagon and ride along with the camp cook.Sunset Guiding and Outfitting is open year-round. All excursions, summer or winter, are guided and depart at your convenience. Panther River Retreat features many holiday activities. Choose from day activities, holidays, photography, winter activities, or other options.

For those who don't want to ride a horse, but still want to enjoy the scenery, you can ride in the wagon. Mountain Wagon Rides depart from Sunset's Panther River Retreat mid-morning. Enjoy the scenic Panther Valley from the covered wagon drawn by a team of draft horses.

If you wish to travel in your RV, we have graveled pads with electrical hookups and access to spring water.

The Sunset Guiding and Outfitting retreat at the Panther River is a great opportunity for photographing the wild horses that roam freely in the surrounding area.

Beautiful wild flowers including Alberta's provincial flower, the wild rose.We also provide an outdoor adventure for you to ride or hike near the Retreat to photograph the many species of wildlife, including Bighorn sheep, moose, deer and elk.
