Hiking in the high alpine

In July and August we offer our guests four and five-night wilderness adventures deep in the British Columbia mountains.

On one or more of your days with us we will head into the high alpine. We 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 (conditions permitting).

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.

On one or more of your days with us we will head into the high alpine. We walk the high country at 7,000 feet or more, taking in the unforgettable views.

Far from the summer crowds

The places we will take you are far from the summer crowds. We cut our own trails and because of that we often do not see another person all day.

The views from the top are simply spectacular, some of the most memorable in all of western Canada.

A typical day

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

Dinner is typically a sit-down affair where Kristin serves fine freshly-cooked locally-sourced food in the main house. At least once during your stay we will barbecue by the river and light up a campfire.
