Summer wilderness adventures

In July and August we offer our guests a three-night adventure deep in the British Columbia mountains next to a blue-green river.

During the day we take you into the wilderness, at night you stay in your own hand-built riverside cabin.

Hiking in the high alpine

A mountain hike

On one of your days with us we will head into the high alpine. We use our 4x4s for the ascent and then hike the high country at 7,000 feet or above, taking in the unforgettable views.

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

Rafting down our blue-green river

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

A typical day will see you waking up in your own cabin to the sound of the fast-flowing river that runs past the ranch. We will bring you freshly-brewed early morning tea and coffee in your cabin and then serve a generous breakfast in the lodge.

Far from the summer crowds

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

The river that we run with our rafts will give you a unique view of the remote valley we live in. A typical run is around 30 kms, and includes a picnic lunch and tea by the river.

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 may be a sit-down affair where we serve fine freshly-cooked locally-sourced food and the best of British Columbia’s beer and wine in the main house.

Or, if the weather is sunny, we may barbeque and eat by the river.

Your summer holiday with us will include:

  • A day hike in the high alpine using our 4x4s for the ascent
  • A day’s rafting trip down our beautiful wilderness river
  • Your own riverside cabin, breakfast and dinner in the main lodge, internet access, use of our library of books and DVDs.
