The Cariboo region of British Columbia, with its wide open skies, rolling grasslands and forests bejewelled with lakes, is a place of high adventure and historic gold rush dreams. Surrounded by 80,000 acres of this pristine wilderness, the remote Siwash Lake Wilderness Resort is a private and exclusive hideaway.
And what makes staying at this family owned and operated resort an iconic Canadian experience? Frontier-style accommodations feature authentic ranch house suites, a charming barn loft and exclusive canvas cabins—lavish safari-inspired tents with exquisite views that pair luxury amidst nature with the rustic ambience of the Cariboo. Five-star dining highlights organic food that is grown on the property and foraged from the wilds nearby.
Hone your wilderness skills hiking into the backcountry, stopping at lakes and waterfalls to enjoy a gourmet picnic. Explore BC’s rugged heartland by horseback, kayak, SUP or mountain bike. Try your hand at fly-fishing; steady it with shooting and archery. Learn useful life lessons during a wilderness survival course. Perform yoga on a platform on the ridge. For the ultimate adventure, try the helicopter safari and soar above the mighty Fraser Canyon.
Guests of all riding abilities have the opportunity to participate in the Siwash Synergy with Horses™ program. Regarded as one Canada’s finest riding experiences, it involves supportive and informative mentoring by personal guides, hands-on horsemanship, and a fun-filled focus on the magical bond between horses and humans.
At the end of day, the canvas-clad spa in the forest is a welcome site for wonderful pampering. Or perhaps a dip in the lake, with its silky smooth water, is the perfect finale to your daily wilderness explorations. One thing is certain, Siwash delivers untamed British Columbia on a silver platter.
