Find out more details about the tour and its highlights
The focus of these tours is on wildlife tracking, observation and identification. Exploration of the area is done by horseback, on foot or by truck. You will have the opportunity to learn about the habits of numerous wildlife species in the area including black bears, grizzly bears, mountain goats, moose, bighorn sheep, mule deer, wolves, eagles and marmots.
Depending on your independent travel plans, you can arrive at the ranch by car or use our shuttle services from Vancouver at an additional cost. Upon booking, you’ll be provided with all the necessary information regarding transportation to and from the ranch.
First day: On your ranch based Canadian wildlife tracking trip, arrive at the ranch and enjoy lunch in our historic lodge. Then meet your horse, learn how to saddle, take a short ride to prepare for the rest of the trip and review the trip itinerary with your guides.
Next morning bring in and saddle your horses then ride out on a morning ride to get to know the area, scouting for different species of Canadian wildlife at prime spots along the way. After returning to the ranch for lunch, ride out again in the afternoon on a new trail, looking for wildlife in different locations.
Early morning and evening are the best times to see wildlife so head out at sunrise and sunset by horse, foot or truck to scout for mountain goats, grizzly and black bears, mule deer, moose and other animals in their natural habitat.
Learn about where to find each species and their behaviours. Record every animal you see in our wildlife sightings form to contribute to habitat and population management of the Chilcotin Ark. Remove invasive species and collect data along the way such as grizzly hair from rub trees for DNA analysis.
On the last full day, enjoy a full day ride to the mountain tops and learn more about Canada’s flora and fauna.
Departure day: On your final morning, learn how to do bareback riding, archery and biathlon target shooting before lunch with a final review of the week’s adventure before departing.
