Bar U Ranch National Historic Site of Canada comprises 148.43 hectares of rangeland that constitute the original headquarters site of an Alberta cattle ranch established in the 1880s. Located in a shallow east-west valley along the banks of Pekisko Creek in southern Alberta’s foothills, the ranch includes rolling uplands, level flats, covered creek bottoms and a variety of wooden ranch buildings.

Ride into history and discover ranching life from the late 1800s at Bar U Ranch National Historic Site. Try your hand at ranching skills, wander through historic buildings, or sit around the campfire and listen to old-time tales. Back-dropped by the Rocky Mountains – a true Alberta experience!

Le lieu historique national du Canada du Ranch-Bar U comprend 148.43 hectares de pâturages qui constituent le site original du siège d’un élevage bovin établi en Alberta dans les années 1880. Le ranch, qui comprend de hautes terres vallonnées, des plaines sans dénivellation, des lits de cours d’eau recouverts et différents bâtiments de style ranch en bois, est situé dans une vallée peu profonde qui s'étend d’est en ouest, le long des berges de Pekisko Creek, dans les contreforts méridionaux de l’Alberta.

À bord d’une charrette tirée par de grands percherons noirs, découvrez la vie de cow-boy de ranch à la fin des années 1800, au lieu historique national du Ranch-Bar U. Mettez vos compétences de cow-boy à l’épreuve. Initiez-vous aux anciennes méthodes d’élevage dans les ranchs. Après avoir visité d’authentiques édifices rustiques, asseyez-vous autour d’un feu de camp pour écouter de vieilles histoires. Entouré des montagnes Rocheuses, vivez une véritable expérience albertaine!
