The Best Ranch Experiences in North America

Working Ranches 
Zapata Ranch, Colorado, USA
Zapata, a Nature Conservancy Preserve, is a 103,000 acre property in central southern Colorado, nearby the incredible White Sand Dunes National Park. The land itself is home to bison, antelope, elk and deer.
Activities offered here include horse-riding, hiking, volleyball, basketball, trap shooting, archery and white-water rafting. 
Guest Ranches 
Goosewing Ranch, Wyoming, USA
Goosewing Ranch is located just 40 miles northeast of Jackson and offers exceptional views of the Grand Teton Mountains. The valley in which the ranch sits is also host to some of North America’s most spectacular game: elk, moose, mountain sheep, antelope, bear, eagles, geese and cranes.
Activities include trail rides, arena riding, fly fishing, shooting, archery, river tubing, wagon rides, biking, swimming and a hot tub. 
Dixie Dude Ranch, Texas, USA
Just an hour from San Antonio, nestled in the spectacular Texas Hill Country, Dixie Dude Ranch continues to adhere to its original purpose - a real working ranch where longhorn cattle, Spanish goats, and pigs are raised and where real cowboys work the horses and compete in rodeos.
Activities include horse-riding, swimming, fishing, hiking, hayrides, basketball and volleyball. 
Resort Ranches 
Tanque Verde Ranch, Arizona, USA
Tanque Verde is one of the best-known ranches in Arizona, located on the edge of the Saguaro National Park, near Tucson. One of America’s old cattle and guest ranches, it has now become a luxurious ranch, striving to provide the ultimate ranch experience. Whether it’s the food, activities, or lodging, they take pride in providing an exceptional experience.
Activities include trail rides, arena riding, a breakfast ride, BBQ cookout, swimming pool, hot tub, biking, fishing and a fitness centre. 
Lone Mountain Ranch, Montana, USA
Lone Mountain’s location, near the Big Sky Ski Resort and Yellowstone National Park have long made it a popular option. The ranch offers a diverse experience with the ranch life as well as exploration of some of the region’s most beautiful natural areas—all amid warm and genuine informal western hospitality.
Summer activities include trail riding, canoeing, biking, hiking, Yellowstone tours and yoga. In winter, take a sleigh ride or go shoe-shoeing. 
This is just a selection of the ranches that are dotted throughout North America. If you would like to visit any of these incredible properties for yourself, or if you have another one in mind, contact us today to get planning a once-in-a-lifetime trip!
