GO WILD IN THE WEST

Destination of the World News - - LUXURY -

If get­ting out there amid na­ture is what your fam­ily loves best, The Re­sort at Paws Up is call­ing. With a name in­spired by “the wel­come of a wig­gling ranch dog and its un­af­fected charm” (we love!) and a mix of con­verted barns, rus­tic houses and river­side sa­fari-style tented camps, this lux­u­ri­ous work­ing ranch spans 37,000 acres in Montana, in­clud­ing a 16-kilo­me­tre sweep of the leg­endary Blackfoot River (fun fact: where Robert Red­ford filmed A River Runs Through It). Kids can run wild ex­plor­ing some 160-kilo­me­tres of rid­ing and walk­ing trails, never once bleat­ing “I’m bored” with around 60 ac­tiv­i­ties from ab­seil­ing and white-wa­ter raft­ing to fish­ing for cut­throat trout, or – ideal for your lit­tle cow­boy wannabe – spend­ing the day with a wran­gler herd­ing cat­tle or trail rid­ing. Steppes Travel is of­fer­ing a four-night, full-board stay in one of the brand-new, three­bed­room fam­ily tented suites from £5,225 (US$6,739) per per­son, based on two adults and two chil­dren, in­clud­ing re­turn econ­omy flights from Dubai and an in­ter­change­able “starter pack” of ac­tiv­i­ties, such as a Blackfoot River float trip, two-hour horse­back ride, archery, sport­ing clays for two adults and one half-day Kid’s Camp for two chil­dren. Can we get a yee-haw?
