Summer and winter adventures from a guest ranch in the Chilcotin Mountains of BC


Enjoy a variety of summer and winter activities at this all season wilderness guest ranch. Your authentic western guest ranch adventure awaits you in the stunning Chilcotin Mountains of British Columbia. Enjoy mainly a sunny dry climate, panorama views of the Coast Range Mountains, spruce forests, flower-blanketed alpine meadows, and almost no bugs in the rainshadow of the South Chilcotin Mountains. 

Experience the daring spirit and wilderness-driven lifestyle of a dude ranch in the mountains of Canada. From western-style trail riding to target shooting and lasso lessons, you’ll learn some serious cowboy skills. With these all inclusive vacations, the possibilities for adventure are as endless as the horizons of the old west. At rthis horse ranch, we take the idea of guest dude ranches to the next level. Every day, your guides invite you to jump right in and work alongside them as much or as little as you want. Whether you join in as they roll out the hay or learn how to saddle your trusty horse like a true cowboy, you get to be part of the action at our dude ranch.

This is not your ordinary dude ranch. Sitting at an elevation of 5000 ft it offers day hikes and day rides into the alpine. Instead of the dusty planes and dry winds that surround most guest dude ranches, this ranch has towering mountain ranges and ancient forests. The unique location  allows you to experience the ranch lifestyle in a setting unlike any other. The wide-open skies, fresh mountain air, and wild terrain will refresh your mind, body, and soul. As you ride along the rugged mountain trails surrounding our dude ranch, your journey will take on the same spirit of adventure that the old west came to represent.

Daily morning and evening guided wildlife tours offer opportunities to see grizzly bears, wolves, mountain lions and Bighorn sheep.

When you're not riding, enjoy the library, swim at a nearby lake, or play a board game before enjoying the camaraderie of the evening campfire. For the non-rider there is hiking, mountain biking and wildlife watching tours. 

In the winter, the area has some of the best alpine snowmobiling in Canada. Horseback riding is available year round and sleigh rides, ice fishing, snowshoeing and cross country skiing are available for the perfect winter getaway.
