Luxury Wilderness Resort & Guest Ranch | Siwash Lake Eco Adventures
Perfectly situated halfway along the Vancouver-Banff-Jasper loop—which is among the most spectacular drives in the world—Siwash Lake is one of very few upscale places to stay on route that offers boutique, high-end travel accommodations and eco friendly backcountry adventures, midpoint between Canada's magnificent Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Coast of British Columbia.
In 2017, our beloved Siwash Lake was hit by a most aggressive forest fire. An epic fight ensued. With the help of a small, yet brave and loyal team, we fought hard and saved the core of the operation. The heart and soul of Siwash prevails. Now the place is nestled within a very rare and enchanting post-wildfire ecosystem. As such, Siwash Lake Wilderness Resort offers guests an incredibly unique wilderness vacation. This upscale, immersive, National Geographic travel experience is unrivaled elsewhere on Earth.
Our sacred places on the range survived the wildfire—secluded backcountry rivers, lush waterfalls, and rolling meadows for canters on horseback—now they are glorious havens of green amid a striking, fire-licked forest. The Ranch itself has become a powerful oasis where resident wildlife seek sanction. In the spirit of renewal that follows a wildfire, we forge ahead to share our incredible story with guests from around the globe, while elevating our personal service and eco adventure experiences to a newfound high.
We cater especially for high energy, multi-generation getaways, 'off-the-grid' family holidays, and small, exclusive, executive retreats for a gathering of C-suite colleagues—meticulously orchestrated within a natural, peaceful paradise.
Amid the world's luxury resorts and ranches, Siwash has been described as the wild card, resplendent as a rare, rough-cut gem. We offer charming and lovingly-tended facilities; 10,000 acres of raw wilderness; and an honest, home-spun collection of adventures that are educational in Nature and crafted with exquisite attention to detail.
By Nature, this boutique eco resort is small, private & sophisticated; beckoning to discerning, active travelers who seek authenticity, a commitment to sustainability & impactful, life-enriching experiences.
Beyond Horses, Siwash offers a World-Class Selection of Privately Guided Wilderness Adventures
Beyond our two-day Equine Experience, we offer privately guided wilderness adventures for fly fishing, marksmanship, 3D cross-terrain archery, and wilderness survival. Take a private guided hike to nearby waterfalls for water play in the wilds and to learn about fire ecology. Top off your stay with a world-class helicopter safari to the mighty Fraser River for gold panning and First Nations lore.
Those guests who seek gentle wilderness pursuits on their own can practice outdoor yoga, or indulge in a relaxation massage. The waters of shimmering Siwash Lake beckon for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding. And while at Siwash, discover a new passion for sky watching or birding.
In 2019, at our private dark sky reserve, we'll be debuting our new Siwash Star Camp™ for an exclusive, overnight camp-out during your stay.
Following a day of wilderness adventures, you'll appreciate fresh, healthy food and complete comfort at this luxury eco lodge. Five-star dining highlights food grown on the ranch and foraged from the wilds nearby. Savour organic fare that rivals sophisticated city dining, and then sleep amidst the softest linens while experiencing authentic, off-the-grid living.
|Siwash is our cherished wilderness hideaway. Akin to country estates of the Old West, it's your 'home away from home'. Within honey-hued log walls beneath the stars, we invite you to experience a soul-pleasing blend of the rustic and the refined. Come, play in the wilds with us!|
