La Reata Authentic Ranch Vacation - Great Excursions Company Ltd
Crossing a rolling prairie landscape, our La Reata Ranch lies tucked away in the beautiful Saskatchewan River valley, along the shores of Lake Diefenbaker.
This Ranching family home is about a two hour drive from Saskatoon Airport or 45 minutes north from Swift Current on Trans Canada Highway #1. The nearest town is Kyle (20 minute drive). This is a working cattle ranch. Life on the Ranch follows the seasons and the rhythm of the herds. They rise with the sun, work hard and relax under the stars of a fragrant prairie evening.
Guests at La Reata experience the cowboy way-of-life, not from a helicopter or an air-conditioned truck, but from the cowpoke's best friend, the horse. Since this operation opened in 1996, this peaceful spot in the river hills has welcomed guests for an intimate, real-life ranch experience of daily chores, hearty cowboy fare and plenty of fresh air.
