Lucasia Ranch Vacations... Sharing our Western Heritage!
If you are looking for a true Alberta Canada Working Ranch experience, head back in time to Historic Lucasia Ranch. Join ranch cowboys as they herd cattle through the picturesque Porcupine Hills of southwestern Alberta.
Surround yourself with 4000 acres of vast open country, which comprises the impressive Lucasia Ranch. Herds of elk and deer mingle with Texas Longhorns and Crossbred cattle, as well as Percheron, Appaloosa and Quarter horses.
Established in 1881 by Colonel Lyndon, our Alberta Foothills Ranch stands as testament to a bygone era. After a day in the saddle, you can spend the evening beside a crackling campfire (weather permitting) or relaxing on our deck. Taste the crystal clear spring water that flows through our ranchyard into a pond that is home to colourful ducks and geese. Join our family as they go about the daily Alberta Ranch activities.
Our main ranch home has two guest rooms for your Alberta Ranch Vacations Or, you can experience pioneer life and stay in our refurbished 1900s log cabin. Also, operational at Lucasia Ranch is a self-contained log guest cabin.
Alberta Ranch activities include cattle drives, branding days, seasonal round-ups and regular checks on cattle & horses. Other options... learn the basics of roping the dummy, challenge someone to a game of horseshoes, enjoy an evening of story swapping cameraderie or hike the hills and watch for birds and other wildlife.
Lucasia Ranch is a family-owned and run working ranch. The Lucas family take pride in the historic ranch legacy that depicts Lucasia Ranch and enjoy meeting and introducing guests the world over to their western lifestyle.
Access to the Alberta Dude Ranch is convenient from either the Calgary International Airport (1.5 hour drive) or from the U.S. Montana border crossing. Often our guests use our place as a staging area to drive to Banff, Waterton National Park, Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump or Calgary, returning the same day to the Ranch. (Please note that while Lucasia has high speed line-of-sight internet, there is no cell phone service at the ranch.)
By preserving our western heritage and lifestyle, we are able to share the legends, history and culture of our cowboy life with our guests... a visit to Lucasia Ranch will leave you with a lifetime of western memories.
