Escape the modern world and explore the hidden valleys, rugged canyons, and mountain rivers of the Pacific Mountain Range astride your trusty steed.
This thrilling holiday in the Chilcotin Plateau comes in two packages: a 5-day horseback riding getaway or a 7-day complete exploration of the South Chilcotin Mountain Range in British Columbia. Find yourself on horseback atop alpine mountains, in the midst of boundless meadows and closer to nature than you’ve been before.
If you choose the 5-day extravaganza, you’ll be spending two nights camping under the starry skies of British Columbia in rustic Prospector tents and two nights accommodations at the mountain ranch. If you’re looking for a more in-depth exploration of the outdoors, then opt for the 7-day tour, which camps for four nights.
Availability (2023): Mid May-end of August.

This multi-day horseback riding tour will take you across the wilderness of the Pacific Mountain range in 5- or 7-day trips. During the trip, you’ll camp under the sky of the South Chilcotin Mountains, have lunch in the shade of towering mountains, and pick wildflowers in the tranquil river valley.
For horse lovers, looking for a brief adventure out in the mountains of Chilcotin Plateau, a 5-day horse riding tour is perfect. However, if you want to become one with nature and spend more than a night under the starry sky, the 7-day horseback trip is ideal!

Day 1 - Vancouver to the Ranch
Our day will start early in the morning when we’ll pick you up from Vancouver and bring you to the ranch on a shuttle bus. A short introductory walk around the ranch will bring you closer to the rural mountainous parts of Canada. At the ranch, we’ll have lunch and a quick chat about the tour and itinerary. You’ll get to meet your horse for the next few days and fit the saddle properly.
Because this tour is about you reconnecting with nature and getting away from the modern world at least for a few days, you’re given the freedom to do as much or as little in the days ahead.
Towards the evening, we’ll head out for an introductory trail ride. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to handle a horse, we’ll teach you basic horsemanship skills!
Day 2 - Head out into the wilderness
After a hearty breakfast at the ranch, we’ll pack and saddle our horses and ride out of the ranch.
Our whole day will be filled with unforgettable views of rugged mountains, vast meadows dotted with wildflowers, and tranquil river valleys. As we traverse the South Chilcotin Mountains, look out for the abundant wildlife that is hiding everywhere. The entire Pacific Mountain Range is home to a rich diversity of fauna, including grizzly bears, moose, bald eagles, black bears, cougars, mountain goats and many more.
We’ll enjoy a nice rest and lunch in a meadow of wildflowers. Have your camera ready for those picture-worthy moments at all times and remember to enjoy the fresh air!
When we’re done with the ride for the day, our guides will take the horses to rest in the meadows while you enjoy dinner under an open sky. We’ll spend the night in a comfy camp.
Day 3-5 - Explore the Wilderness
After a hearty breakfast at the camp, we’ll continue to explore the surrounding landscapes of the Chilcotin Mountain Range. Spectacular panoramic views unfurl before you as you traverse the rugged mountain tops on a horse. For the next three days, we’ll be lunching amid awe-inspiring mountain scenery, horizonless meadows, or tranquil river valleys.
We’ll explore the natural habitats of a diverse selection of wildlife, and sleep under a starry sky of the Southern Chilcotin Mountains. Unforgettable stories will be told in light of a campfire and the memories you make will remain with you long after the end of the trip. We’ll spend the night camping one last time and return to the ranch in the morning.
Day 6 - Back to the Ranch
The sixth day of our journey will start with breakfast at the camp. Our ride back to the ranch will be equally enchanting and picturesque, unfolding the ravishing nature, wildlife and flora of Chilcotin Mountains once more.
We’ll have lunch atop a mountain, in a vivid alpine meadow and head back down towards the ranch.
Here, you’ll be treated to a sumptuous dinner. Then, we’ll share stories and impressions from the trip, star gaze at the heavenly sky and relax around the fireplace. Our last night will be spent at the ranch.
Day 7 - Adventures at the ranch
After a lazy breakfast at the ranch, get ready for a day following in the footsteps of cowboys! We’ll learn the ropes of running a ranch, ride bareback horses and enhance our aim with some target practice.
While riding a bareback horse is a complex activity that requires balance and coordination, it allows you to feel every movement of the horse with your whole body and improve your connection and communication. Afterwards, we’ll introduce you to target shooting where you’ll learn to hold a gun and improve your aim. Finally, before we take you back to Vancouver, a hearty farewell lunch will be served. We’ll go over our horseback riding trip and say goodbye to our fellow travelers.
