BIG CREEK LODGE

Experience Canada’s Wild West – This great guest ranch is located amidst the vast wilderness on the West Coast of Canada, in the province of British Columbia at the foot of the Coast Mountains around 2 hours from Williams Lake Airport and 8 hours from Vancouver. To the north of the Ranch lays the small community of Big Creek with a population of 50 or so people. In all other directions the land is uninhabited, and you can still feel the freedom like it was thousands of years ago. Crystal clear waters, open meadows, dense forests and snow-covered mountains make up the replica watches picturesque landscape. There are no cities or towns all the way to the coast, so that the clean Pacific air flows through untainted by any pollution.

The rodeo at the annual Williams Lake Stampede is at the end of June /beginning of July is a great cowboy experience.


Choose your own horse with the help of a wrangler and spend some time exploring the spectacular wilderness that surrounds the ranch on the back of your new four-legged friend. The ranch caters for all levels of ability and beginner riders will receive additional instruction in the arena. The ranch offers three 7-night packages.

Replica Handbags “Riding Package” includes 5 days riding and 1 day trip to the Nemaiah Valley, accommodation in a lodge room plus all meals and taxes. Suitable for all levels of rider, the first day will be spent finding the right horse for you and a short trail ride to get used to your new four footed friend and a western saddle if this is new for you. From then on you will have days of unforgettable rides amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Untouched wilderness, mountain views, wildlife, meadows and forests will be your surroundings for the next 5 days. The horses need a day off, so one day you will visit the Nemaiah Valley, hiking up to the deep-blue Chilko Lake which is one of the highest in Canada.

“Adventure Package", Similar to the riding package in that there are 5 rides but 2 of these are through the Big Creek Provincial Park overnighting in a very comfortable camp at the base of 2482m Anvil Mountain. To get there, you will load the horses into a trailer for the drive into the BC Provincial Park 11 miles away. From there, there is a 12-mile ride through the wilderness into camp - an unforgettable experience in itself. As with the riding package, the day trip to the Nemaiah Valley is included .
