Cariboo Wilderness Lodge - Siwash Lake Ranch
British Columbia Canada
A private and exclusive guest ranch - an intimate adventure hideaway in the heart of British Columbia's cowboy country
Big comforts, small footprint. Come and enjoy this Eco-friendly mix of the rustic and refined.
This is one of the world's premier luxury guest ranches, surrounded by 80,000 acres of pristine British Columbia wilderness. Wildlife thrives here among our natural grasslands, forests, lakes, and rivers. This remarkable, Eco-friendly setting provides a refreshing oasis of wilderness solitude, filled with enriching moments for adventurous people who seek the finer things in life.
The cowboy culture of the Cariboo is still alive here with a mix between Eco-friendliness of the 21st century and hardiness of the Old West. This luxurious resort offers comfort and style in secluded wilderness, perfect for romantic getaways or family fun adventures. The ranch is generally adult-oriented in the Spring and the Fall, while families enjoy the horseback and fly-fishing activities all throughout the summer. Whenever you visit, you’ll enjoy a world class wilderness experience!

The "signature" riding program is unrivaled at other luxury guest ranches world wide and ensures that horseback riding vacations at this ranch are extraordinary holidays that feature guided riding to your heart’s desire, for first-time beginners through to advanced riders, with the option of riding on your own as well.
The Quarter, Arab and Appaloosa horses are well loved and well trained and there is always one to suite your riding level and needs. If you have a partner or family members that don’t ride, not to worry. They can pass the time fly fishing safaris, guided Eco-adventures, canoeing, hiking and much more!

This Eco-friendly boutique lodge has been awarded a Five Green Keys award (by the Hotel Association of Canada, given to an establishment that exemplifies the highest standards of environment responsibility in all areas of operation). It is constructed of hand-hewn spruce logs and overlooks Siwash Lake. The lodge is south facing, allowing for maximum sunshine that is both enjoyable and practical: solar provides half of the ranch’s needs. Enjoy a drink on the spacious deck and discuss your day’s ride or escape to a private verandah for your own quiet contemplation.
The trek off the beaten path is worth it: at the end you’ll find a soul-pleasing blend of the rustic and refined. Luxurious accommodations, fine dining and warm hospitality wait to provide the ultimate guest ranch experience.

Enjoy the freedom to roam 80,000 acres of pristine range land on a horse to call yours for duration of stay. A dream ranch vacation and riding holiday where Eco-adventure, luxury and horsemanship entwine in the wilds to create an unforgettable experience in beautiful British Columbia. Along with riding, cast to trout on sparkling waters, hike a canyon to nearby waterfalls, mountain bike the back-country or paddle a canoe across shimmering Siwash Lake. Try the sustainable living workshop or a wilderness survival class, land stewardship project or interpretive nature walk. This dude ranch offers the discerning family or couple a spectacular wilderness experience.     
Later, indulge in fine cuisine and complete comfort at this unique guest ranch—savour ranch grown, organic food that rivals fine city dining and then sleep amidst the softest linens. Siwash is family operated and features a boutique wilderness lodge, akin to country estates of the “Old West”, and within its honey-hued log walls, you'll enjoy a soul-pleasing blend of the rustic and the refined.     
The ranch offers the best in dude ranch vacations tailored to individual needs—a guest ranch adventure with the luxury of outstanding personal service, attention to detail, and a unique riding program in Canada. The perfect place for upscale family holidays and romantic, adult-oriented vacations.
