The sunrise wakes you, gentle hoof beats nearby; the horses are back from their nightly escapades. Coffee awaits at the doorstep; it’s time for the joys of ranching.

Travel back in time, transported by the rustic beauty of Siwash Lake Wilderness Resort. Frontier style accommodations in gorgeous Cariboo country provide a personal adventure nothing short of serendipitous. Choose your secret hideaway: the barn loft, a suite or a canvas canopy. Outfitted with lavish attention, these inspired environments are true extravagance amidst 80,000 acres of untamed British Columbia.

Hone your wilderness skills with a hike into the backcountry, stopping at lakes and waterfalls to enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch. Explore the remote terrain by mountain bike, kayak, or horseback. The award winning riding program encourages all levels, as expert mentors interpret these gentle giants. Try your hand at fly-fishing; steady it for shooting and archery. Indulge in refined pleasures; visit the forest spa for yoga and a massage.

Enveloped inside the elegant dining pavilion, enjoy the panoramic view from the ridge.
Organic, ranch-raised and harvested food completes the experience, topped off by the heartfelt and welcoming staff. You’ll be reluctant to leave, but you’ll have a newfound appreciation of how much cowboy you really had in you.
