Siwash Lake Wilderness Resort

The Cariboo region of British Columbia, with its wide open skies, rolling grasslands and forests flecked with lakes offers endless opportunities for outdoor activities and for exploring its rich gold rush history. Surrounded by 80,000 acres of this pristine wilderness, 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 accommodation, either in authentic ranch house suites, a charming barn loft or exclusive canvas cabins — lavish safari-inspired tents with wonderful views that pair luxury amidst nature with the rustic ambience of the Cariboo.

Five-star dining highlights organic food that is grown on the ranch and foraged from the wilderness nearby. For activities, guests of all riding abilities have the opportunity to explore BC’s rugged heartland on horseback. Regarded as one Canada’s finest equestrian experiences, riding here involves supportive and informative mentoring by personal guides, hands-on horsemanship, and a fun-filled focus on the magical bond between horses and humans. Besides riding, guests can go fly-fishing for rainbow trout, hone their skills in wilderness survival, try archery and shooting, walk to nearby waterfalls, and go mountain biking. Those seeking less energetic pursuits can kayak on Siwash Lake, perform yoga in the great outdoors, or simply luxuriate at a canvas-clad spa in the forest.
