Fine Canadian Eco-adventures at Siwash Lake Luxury Wilderness Resort

Siwash is a small, private eco-retreat and luxury adventure ranch located off-the-beaten path in the wilds of British Columbia. Recognized globally for almost two decades as a top luxury wilderness resort and an authentic family guest ranch, Siwash is among Canada's finest. This National Geographic honoured property is legendary for five-star, all-inclusive eco-adventures and horseback riding. Siwash Lake is the only place to stay that offers boutique, high-end travel accommodations and genuine wilderness ranch adventures, midpoint on the world-renowned touring route through Canada's magnificent Rocky Mountains, between Calgary (Alberta), Whistler and Vancouver, BC.

In 2017, our beloved Siwash was hit by a most aggressive wildfire. An epic fight ensued. With the help of a brave and loyal team, we 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 eco-system. 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 story with guests from around the globe, while taking personal service and the transformational travel experience to a newfound high.

Siwash is beautiful, high-end and off-the-beaten-track. A wild oasis within a fire-licked forest -- reconnect with yourself and your loved ones in this enchanting setting.

We specialize in 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.

By Nature, this boutique resort is small, personal and sophisticated; beckoning to discerning, active travelers who seek authenticity, a commitment to sustainability, and impactful, life-enriching experiences.

Amid the world's high-end 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.

It's all delivered very personally, from the heart, by a world-class staff striving for service excellence. Experience true SiwashSynergy™—a refreshingly unique vacation destination for those who travel beyond the ordinary.
