The perfect 5 day Sundre itinerary.

If you’re in town for 5 days and wondering what to see and do during your stay, here’s an itinerary that will give you the full Sundre experience.


This is an early day - Make it count

9am: Arrive in Sundre at Mukwah Rafting Tours and prepare for a day long rafting adventure through Alberta's wilderness on the Red Deer River.

5pm: Arrive back in Sundre from rafting trip.

6pm: Check in at hotel, possibly Mountain View Inn & Suites; relax a bit. Perhaps use their fitness centre or pool.

7pm: Head downtown for a bite at one of Sundre's restaurants. 

9pm: Go out for drinks - or get back to the hotel to relax for the next day's adventure!
10am: After sleeping in since the day before was long, wake up and get breakfast downtown or at the hotel. 

12pm: Bring your camera and head to the Snake Hill Recreation Area (a nature conservation area with kilometres of trails - the location of the fantastic Snake Hill Slam 5km obstacle race in September) and go for a nice walk through the Aspen groves of the hill. Hopefully you'll get lucky and see some moose or deer to snap some photos of!

3pm: Complete your hike through the Snake Hill and head to a cafe downtown for a little pick-me-up.

4pm: Explore the Sundre Pioneer Village Museum and World of Wildlife, an exceptionally unique collection of pioneer-era buildings and animals from around the world.

5:30pm: Head back to the hotel for some relaxation and to get ready for your night out in Sundre. Tomorrow you'll be heading into the wilderness.
10am: After having breakfast, grab a coffee, hit the road and head west outside of Sundre to the old forestry trunk roads leading to Ya-Ha Tinda.  Be sure to bring your camper or a tent.

11am: Arrive in Ya-Ha Tinda and set up your camp site.

12pm: Have a quick bite to eat and hike the 1km trek to the gorgeous and photogenic Ram Falls.  Don't forget your camera, you might get to see some wild horses!

1pm: Head back around and walk 5 or 6 kilometres toward Eagle Lake, a great spot to relax and get wet. If you're so inclined, forget setting up camp in Ya-Ha Tinda itself, and set up a tent right on the shore of Eagle Lake. This will make the hike more challenging, but also more rewarding.

7pm: Where ever you decide to set up camp, be sure you have firewood and have a nice fire to roast hot dogs over! And have a beer too, you deserve one.
8am: Wake up, go for a walk, and enjoy the scenery.

9am: Hit the road and head to one of the outfitting companies, like Sunset Guiding, that can take you on a horseback adventure through the Alberta Rockies.

7pm: Have dinner, wind-down and spend the night in the West Country.
10am: After waking up, having breakfast, saying goodbye to the horses, and appreciating the gorgeous views, hit the road back to Sundre.

11am: Arrive back in Sundre, grab another coffee, and go golfing at either Coyote Creek Golf Course or the elite Sundre Golf Club.

4pm: Finish your game of golf, grab a bite, and get ready for the concert or theatre at the Sundre Arts Centre.
7pm: Performance likely begins.

9pm: Performance wraps up... Do you spend another night or head home?
Not to worry. You'll be back. And we're getting ready for you to call us home too.
