South Chilcotin Getaway
British Columbia Canada

These trips are tailored towards advanced intermediate to experienced riders who are looking for a true taste of the unique multi-day backcountry horse packing adventure!

You will join wranglers on an authentic hut to hut expedition via horseback, packing supplies into and between remote backcountry camps. You can expect to travel along traditional horse packing routes to and from camps, gain a broad experience and understanding of the typical day for wranglers, and have ample opportunities to learn about the history of horse packing in the region.

Your wrangler guides will uncover the magic of the South Chilcotin as you travel on horseback through remote mountain passes and sub alpine meadows, visit glacier fed alpine lakes, and experience historic trails through a variety of terrain. Along the way, you may spot some of the local inhabitants: bears, (black or grizzly), moose, marmots, deer, wolves, mountain goats, and California Big Horn Sheep. Bring your camera to capture it all!

You will spend your nights in fully serviced backcountry camps, where you will enjoy thoughtful meals and some creature comforts.
