Episode Guide »
Equitrekking host Darley Newman travels to Alberta, Canada to experience Western adventure and stunning natural scenery. In Kananaskis, Darley treks amid the beautiful snow-capped Canadian Rockies with a longtime Alberta cowboy, conquering high altitudes and an August hailstorm. Next, Darley experiences the fast-paced Calgary Stampede with its equestrian competitions, Western art, rodeos and surprisingly diverse food offerings. North of Calgary, viewers ride along on a multi-day pack trip into Banff National Park, Canada's oldest national park, passing glacial-fed lakes through rushing mountain streams and forested trails that open up to reveal dramatic, tall mountain peaks. Darley camps in the wilderness, discovering what it takes to live in the primitive backcountry, and sleep out under the stars. At Homeplace Ranch, a historic ranch in the foothills outside of Calgary, Darley meets local Mac MaKenny who shares the ranch's intimate history during a ride through tall Aspen trees to an outdoor ranch BBQ.
