Information

From the first day to the last day of the tour, your home will be in nature. We’ll help you reconnect to the wilderness, teach you basic camping and horsemanship skills, and accompany you through the most picturesque trails in the South Chilcotin Mountains.

During the day, all you’ll see is vast verdant meadows, covered with a blanket of wildflowers, horizons, painted with snow-capped mountains, and borderless skies, lined with soft clouds. At night, you’ll stay in a forest hut, eat scrumptious dinners by the bonfire, and sleep under a starry sky. You can enjoy this adventure for 4 or 7 days, based on how much time you’re able to get away and detox in nature!

Depending on your own travel plans, you can arrive at the ranch by car or use our shuttle bus services for an additional cost. More detailed information will be provided to you upon booking.

Day 1 - Arrival

Once at the ranch, we’ll show you around and take you to your room where you can freshen up. Then, you’ll be invited to have lunch with everyone at the table, after which we’ll help you repack your personal belongings into mountain duffel bags and then head out together in the late afternoon.

As we traverse the mountainous terrain, breathtaking views of the alpine panorama open up. You’ll be awe-struck by majestic mountains where you can feast your eyes on the flamboyant meadows, blanketed by vivid wildflowers, with the gentle trickle of tranquil streams providing the perfect soundtrack.  The South Chilcotin Mountains are a paradise for every nature, photography, and hiking lover.

Towards the end of our first day, we’ll settle in a hut-based camp and eat a hearty supper cooked by our skillful guides.

 

Day 2 - 3 - Hikes into the wild

Once well rested, we’ll have a leisurely breakfast, pack our stuff, and head out into the wild once again. These two days of hiking will be slightly more demanding as we’ll ascend higher and higher to gain a 360-degree view of the mountains, valleys, and canyons. With vast mountain ranges sprawling in front of you and deep rugged valleys lying at the tips of your feet, your inner adventurer will be awakened.

We’ll have lunch atop a mountain or in a meadow of wildflowers. Either way, a picnic in the open air is an experience you’ll remember long after the trip. There’s something sublime about enjoying a meal amidst panoramic views of the mountains and the crisp, alpine air. After lunch, we’ll start hiking back to our camp.

We’ll have dinner at the camp under the starry skies of the Chilcotin Mountains, and spend two more nights in comfortable mountain huts.

 

Day 4 - Homebound

After a scrumptious breakfast at the camp, we’ll pack our belongings and saddle up our horses. As we hike back towards the ranch, our journey will take us through deep rugged valleys, carved by glacier-fed rivers, across endless meadows, dotted with vivid wildflowers and crisscrossed by narrow mountain paths.

On our way back to the ranch, we’ll have a break for lunch. Once back at the ranch, we’ll repack our personal belongings and bid farewell to the group and the guides. Depending on your travel plans, you can independently explore the surrounding areas in more depth or head back to Vancouver aboard our shuttle bus.
