Welcome to The Flying U Ranch:
We Are Canada's Oldest Guest Ranch & We Offer The Largest Herd of Riding Horses in Canada!
The Flying U Ranch is for guests who want to enjoy the real frontier past. Here you step back in time and experience life like it was 100 years ago. Established in 1849 as a trading post, today we are Canadas oldest guest ranch. There are 110 horses and 60,000 acres of aspen lined trails. You stay in cozy private log cabins with wood stoves, or in any one of our 5 lakeside executive homes. Guests enjoy delicious western cuisine served in our log dining hall and announced by dinner bell. After a day in the saddle guests enjoy a camp fire or a magical hay ride. There is also square dancing, line dancing and live entertainment. The Flying U is a real western town with 44 log buildings and a main street where horses, dogs, and peacocks roam free. There is a real blacksmith shop, a saloon that's right out of the 1800’s, a theatre, a dining hall, a pool hall, activities building and the “Century lodge” with its lounge area with stone fireplace.
At the Flying U, it's all about our wranglers and staff. Guests are pampered by a warm and genuine group of 30 staff members who make guests feel like they are home. They include a group of 10 wranglers led by Cowboy Steve, an institution here in the West. Our staff teach our guests horsemanship, run evening archery, teach canoeing, organize frontier cowboy photo shoots, and there is even rope tying and knots.
There's so much more. The Flying U is an all inclusive lakeside resort built on the shores of a crystal clear lake. Guests enjoy swimming, sailing, canoeing, and kayaking. There is even Yoga on the dock on Sundays. There are three power boats that are used for tubing, and afternoon cruises. Best of all everything is included at no extra charge.
The Flying U is like no other place in Canada. We are the last ranch to offer unguided riding. We are a down-home community of old traditions and a safe and secure gated family resort. So round up family or friends and become part of the tradition that has made the Flying U Ranch a world class guest ranch since 1923.
