Accommodation

During this vacation, you will stay for two nights in Chilcotin Holidays' ranch accommodation and two nights at the alpine camp.

The ranch house

The historic ranch house lodge is the perfect place to meet the horses, discover a library of inspirational books and connect with other guests and the ranch community. This is where your wilderness experience starts!

The camps

The mountain camps, many located at treeline, are the ideal base for your wilderness experience. Wilderness cabins, prospector tents, a campfire, and a horse corral allow you to get back to basics. Splitting wood, making a fire, and packing water are all ways to reconnect to nature. From your camp, journey into the wilderness on day rides.
