Love for the Land

We gratefully acknowledge that Siwash Lake lies in the unceded territories of the Secwepemc Nation. We respectfully honour their people, cultures and traditions.

We offer charming, lovingly-tended ranch facilities and an honest, home-spun collection of wilderness adventures that are educational in nature, crafted with exquisite attention to detail.

We have survived a massive wildfire. Our unique story is about thriving amid an uncertain future within a powerful, ever-changing climate and landscape. Embracing the spirit of a regenerating wilderness, we strive to cultivate connection and environmental awareness in others.

Enchanting Landscapes

Six years ago, our beloved Siwash Lake was hit by a most aggressive forest fire, and an epic battle ensued. Our brave, loyal team fought hard and saved the core of the operation — the heart of the ranch — which now nestles within a rare, regenerating ecosystem.

Sacred places on the range survived the wildfire — backcountry rivers, waterfalls and rolling meadows for canters on horseback — secluded havens of green amid a striking, ebony-hued forest, while the ranch itself has become a lush oasis for wildlife.

In the spirit of renewal following wildfire, we have elevated our service levels and eco adventure experiences to a newfound high. This is a unique wilderness destination where you will discover nature as art within an upscale, immersive, National Geographic honoured ranch experience, unrivaled elsewhere on Earth.

Curated Adventures

Siwash Lake adventures are carefully crafted, immersive experiences amid Nature. They are wholly authentic and designed with the owners' desire to share their most favourite, fun and special things to do in the wild at Siwash Lake, utilizing their years of knowledge gained as genuine wilderness dwellers.

Riders of all abilities explore BC’s rugged heartland on horseback as part of the SiwashSynergy™ horse riding program. A signature experience at Siwash Lake, it is regarded as one Canada’s finest equine vacation experiences.

Privately guided wilderness adventures compliment horse riding, along with a luxury tented camp. These ranch and lodge themes are entwined at Siwash Lake — a bucolic blend of experiences under the banner of an all-inclusive resort.

A Flair for Design

Enhancing these robust adventure experiences are the cuisine and accommodations at Siwash Lake. Several opulent canvas 'Glamping' structures  embellish guest dining and accommodation, with exquisite views that pair luxury amid Nature with the rustic ambience of the Cariboo.

Frontier-style Accommodations feature the Ranch House Suite in our hand-hewn log lodge, a charming Loft Suite, Canvas Cabin and Star Gazer Luxury Tents at Siwash Star Camp™.  As always, 5-star, Open-Air Dining focuses on organic food that is grown on the ranch and foraged from the wilds nearby. The ever present theme steered by over the years is one of authenticity, sustainability and service excellence.
