Chilko Explorer and Pack Trip Combo
British Columbia Canada

Pack Trip: A very special riding tour inside Tsylos Provincial Park, British Columbia. The park underlies very strict environmental rules making it a perfect setting for a wilderness trail-ride deep into the backcountry away from all civilization. The ‘Goat Camp Valley’ is rugged, wild and absolutely beautiful - home of the mighty Mountain Goat.
The photo opportunities are some of the best in the world, amidst rugged glaciers, mountain meadows, alpine flowers, crystal clear lakes and streams, and wildlife. The vistas and settings are too beautiful to put into words. Or you may explore the "Wild Potato Range" with breathtaking green alpine valleys, lakes and canyons.

Chilko Explorer: This trip was designed for the intermediate to advanced rider looking for an exciting riding adventure in breathtaking country while enjoying the comforts of a wilderness lodge at night. After an exhilarating day in the outdoors you can play volleyball or horse-shoes, relax in the whirlpool on the front porch overlooking the Chilko Valley; or just relax in front of the large wood-burning fireplace exchanging stories with your fellow riders. Exceptional meals and fine wines are served family style. One day during the week you will take part in a float trip down Chilko River or sightseeing boat ride up Chilko Lake.
