Tyax Wilderness Resort & Spa
Located deep in British Columbia’s back-country, Tyax Wilderness Resort & Spa offers the opportunity to disconnect from normal day stresses and enjoy the great outdoors. The timber log and stone lodge is set on Tyaughton Lake in the Southern Chilcotin Mountains, surrounded by pristine wilderness in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The resort offers 29 rooms in the main lodge and two private chalets with either three or six bedrooms. The modern Spa at Tyax features three treatment rooms where you can enjoy a range of holistic body treatments or simply relax in the infrared or dry saunas, eucalyptus steam room or outdoor Jacuzzi tub.
Enjoy views of Tyaughton Lake at meal times from the lake view restaurant, where the emphasis is on locally sourced organic vegetables and sustainable sourced meat and seafood, with many foraged ingredients harvested daily by the culinary team.
There are a whole host of activities and adventures available at Tyax, whether you want to bike, hike or horseback ride, paddle on the lake or fly high above on a float-plane scenic flight. Miles of single-track mountain bike routes and hiking trails take you through pristine forests and mountain scenery. Glide across Tyaughton Lake in a canoe, kayak or on a stand-up paddle board. Keep a look out for wildlife that can be found in abundance in British Columbia’s wilderness. Flightseeing tours offer you a bird’s eye view of the incredible Chilcotin wilderness and Lilloet Icefields.
Tyax Wilderness Resort and Spa is open between mid-May and mid-October each year and can be included in a tailor-made self-drive holiday. Alternatively, you can fly in from Whistler or Vancouver by float-plane.
