Summer wilderness adventures

In July and August we offer our guests remote wilderness adventures deep in the British Columbia mountains.

During the day we will take you out in the backcountry far from the crowds, at night, after a delicious dinner, you can retreat to your own hand-built luxury cabin next to our blue-green river.

Hiking in the high alpine

On one or more of your days with us we will head into the high alpine.

We use off-road vehicles for the ascent and then walk the high country at 7,000 feet or more, taking in the unforgettable views.

These hikes are suitable for anyone of moderate or greater fitness with basic agility.

Rafting on our blue-green river

We will also take you rafting down the wilderness river that runs right past the ranch.

This river is, we believe, one of the most remote and beautiful in British Columbia.

Parts of the river are quiet and meandering but there are also sections of rapids which we can run.

Summer is not peak bear-viewing season anywhere in British Columbia, but we are bear specialists and during your stay you will learn about both grizzly and black bears. We will also head out to remote spots that bears favour and you may be lucky enough to view one or more totally wild bears.

Far from the summer crowds

The places we will take you are far from the summer crowds. We use little-known trails and often do not see another person all day.

We will also take you out in our Zodiac powerboat on one of our remote wilderness lakes. You can swim against the backdrop of pristine waterfalls, or lounge on deserted beaches.

One of our days together we will devote to bears – learning about these iconic wilderness animals, and heading to places we may be able to view them.

A typical day

After breakfast we head out for the day. Lunch is a picnic of home-made sandwiches, fruit and cake that we take along with us.

Dinner is usually a sit-down affair where Kristin serves fine freshly-cooked locally-sourced food and the best of British Columbia’s beer and wine in the main house.

At least once during your stay we will barbeque by the river and light up a campfire.

  • A day hike in the alpine using our 4×4 vehicles for the climb.
