Peak Ranch Season: April to October
Situated on the west coast of Canada, the province of British Columbia stretches from the North Pacific Ocean on the west, to the spectacular Rocky Mountains in the east where British Columbia meets its neighbour state of Alberta. British Columbia offers a myriad of superb settings for western horseback riding, with the thousands of lakes, rivers and lush forest set against the backdrop of the numerous mountain ranges, including Glacier National Park.
Several ranches are located in the Cariboo Chilcotin region which is rich in history from the gold rush where the miners and cowboys were looking for excitement. Wildlife flourishes here, so be the lookout for eagles, elk, mule deer, bighorn sheep, coyotes, moose and cougars, as well as black and grizzly bears.
Enjoy a range of activities on a ranch holiday to British Columbia. As well as horse riding tours, you can also discover this beautiful and diverse region with fishing and hiking trips, as well as kayaking and white water rafting. A self drive tour is also highly recommended. Ask us for details.
