Guest Ranches & Horseback Riding
Tatlayoko Lake (Steve Ogle/All Canada Photos)
British Columbia’s guest and dude ranches provide the opportunity to ride horses, relax and enjoy nature at the same destination.
Guest/dude ranches in BC offer a wide range of vacation experiences: stay at a deluxe lodge with a luxurious spa, or "rough it" by sleeping outdoors or in a covered wagon. Opt for a working ranch and help herd and wrangle cattle with real cowboys.
Ranches don't just offer horseback riding; there are multiple activities to entertain non-riders and families. Indulge in a spa treatment or get fit with heart-pumping exercise classes. Head into the wilderness to hike, fish, canoe, swim and bike.
