Ride into BC’s wild west frontier

Icon-PopularAreas-ChilcotinWith few roads and a frontier spirit, the Chilcotin is home to golden plateaus along the forested Coast Mountain Range, grasslands and glaciers, alpine rivers and lakes. 

But its Wild West heart is in the valley ranchland and hay fields. If you’re looking for a horseback pack trip or wildlife-viewing ride, this is your place. Hiking the backcountry of west-central British Columbia is just as popular, as is fishing the isolated lakes, heli-skiing, whitewater rafting, and grizzly bear viewing at Tweedsmuir Provincial Park.
