Information

Our dude ranch adventure will introduce you to everyday life on a ranch, and you’ll step into the shoes of a cowboy, take care of horses, ride out into the wilderness and escape from the modern world. Choose a 3-day, 4-day or 7-day getaway and enjoy moments packed full of adventures in the South Chilcotin Mountains.

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.

Day 1 - Arrival at the Ranch

On the first day on the ranch, we’ll show you to your accommodation and treat you to a hearty lunch. Then, you’ll learn how to saddle up your horse and we’ll go on an introductory trail ride.

The mountainous terrain of Gun Creek is loved by bikers and horse riders alike - as soon as you ride out of the ranch on your trusty horse, you’ll quickly become immersed in your natural surroundings. Vast alpine meadows, snow-capped mountain tops, the sound of a trickling stream will take you away from the modern world and suck you into the picture-perfect scene.

Our first ride will be brief, with an introduction in horsemanship and map orientation. Once back at the ranch, we’ll continue to study the map, highlight local trails and examine the topographical structure of the surrounding terrain. Then, we’ll have a scrumptious supper a la ranch.

 

Day 2 - Into the Wild

After a hearty breakfast, we’ll ride out into the wilderness of the Southern Chilcotin Mountains.

You’ll enjoy a day full of unforgettable experiences in the company of your fellow explorers and our beautiful Cayuse horses. The picturesque landscape dotted with wild animals in their natural habitats, and the gusts of fresh alpine air against your skin will instantly make you feel at one with nature. Wild animals, such as grizzly bears, mountain goats, and deer hide amongst the towering mountains, providing exceptional photo opportunities while the vast meadows blanketed with wildflowers are a perfect spot for lunch to a stunning natural backdrop.

In the evening, we’ll return to the ranch. Once refreshed, you’ll be invited to join everyone at the dinner table and share stories and reflections about our day in the wilderness.

 

Day 3 - Adventures on the Ranch

Once well-rested, we’ll try our hands at bareback riding. Bareback is a complex technique that involves riding a horse without the help of a saddle, allowing you to really absorb the powerful movements of this majestic animal. It can improve your relationship and communication with your horse and it’s something that every horse lover should try!

Next up, we’ll try out target shooting! You’ll try your skills out on this long-standing cowboy tradition. Learn how to hold a gun, practice your aim and shoot at targets from various distances.

Later, we’ll enjoy a farewell lunch at the ranch together with everyone and say our goodbyes. If you arrived here by car, you’re more than welcome to continue exploring the area by yourself, otherwise, a shuttle bus will take you back to Vancouver.
