BC is located in western Canada, where Siwash Lake's luxury guest ranch offers one of the world's premier dude ranch experiences. The place is a rare gem; a first-class wilderness resort surrounded by 80,000 acres of pristine British Columbia range land. Wildlife thrives here among golden grasslands, old-growth forests, secluded lakes, and river canyons. This remarkable, eco-friendly setting provides a refreshing oasis of wilderness solitude, filled with inspirational moments for adventurous people who appreciate the finer things in life.

At Siwash, come riding on a beautiful horse to explore BC's remote and rugged heartland. Roam the open range on your own or with a personal riding guide. Synergy with Horses™, our unique riding program, is regarded as the country's best—a showcase adventure activity for Canada's 'Signature Experiences Collection'.

Unmatched at other luxury dude ranches around the globe, our program ensures that horseback riding vacations at this guest ranch are extraordinary. Siwash holidays feature riding to your heart’s desire—for first-time beginners through to expert riders—with your own horses for duration of stay, supportive and informative mentoring at all times, hands-on horsemanship, and a fun-filled focus on the magical bond between horses and humans.

And besides horse riding, we provide a fine array of wilderness experiences in nature: fly-fishing, wildlife safaris, river and lake activities, guided eco-adventures... Siwash is an all-inclusive, multi-activity destination.


The ranch is an ideal, halfway stay for those on tour of British Columbia between the Rocky Mountains and BC's Pacific Coast. And for those wishing to relax and rejuvenate with a longer, destination stay (for both soft adventurers and extremists alike!), our luxury dude ranch offers the dynamic family, couple, solo traveler, or group of friends, a world-class resort for active adventures...

Cast for trout on sparkling waters, hike a canyon to nearby waterfalls, mountain bike the backcountry or paddle a canoe across shimmering Siwash Lake. Hone your skills in wilderness survival or skeet shooting, then luxuriate in our tented spa. Guests are immersed in the wilds, with nature all around.

Following a day of wilderness adventures, you'll appreciate fresh, healthy food and complete comfort at this unique guest ranch. Savour ranch grown and local organic fare that rivals sophisticated city dining. Sleep amidst the softest linens. Experience authentic log home living, and the hottest trend in travel these days—luxury camping in a white canvas safari tent.

Siwash is family operated and is our wilderness home. Akin to country estates of the “Old West”, it's your home away from home. Within honey-hued log walls, you'll enjoy a soul-pleasing blend of the rustic and the refined.
