At Siwash Lake Ranch, possibly Canada’s greenest dude ranch, you can ride, hike, mountain bike, canoe, and fish (catch and release of course). Don’t miss the opportunity to also help with land stewardship, wildlife tracking and learn wilderness survival skills.
Siwash Lake, a luxurious, off-the-grid working ranch runs with the smallest possible footprint. It’s been awarded the highest possible Five Key Rating by the Hotel Association of Canada’s (HAC) Green Key Eco-Rating Program. The ranch is also certified Gold by Green Tourism Canada. It’s all about minimal impact, from line-drying laundry to using solar power – but roughing it is never part of the equation. As one of, at most, 24 guests, you’ll enjoy organic, locally grown food, private lake-view balconies, and crackling wood fires in the antique-furnished great room.
Siwash Lake is also a great place to try glamping, or glamorous camping. The ranch’s spacious safari-style canvas cabins come complete with ensuite bathrooms and expansive lake- and meadow-view sundecks.
