Echo Valley Ranch & Spa

Indulge in a Thai massage or a pedicure before slipping into riding boots at Echo Valley Ranch & Spa near Clinton. Ride through the high country, hike to a canyon, explore trails by mountain bike, or cast a fly in a remote lake. Back at the ranch, take a dip in the indoor pool, soak weary muscles in a mountain-view hot tub, and learn ancient Thai exercise techniques. Dinner? The chef adds a whole new meaning to home cooking, with organic, locally raised food eaten family style in the ranch house.

The Flying U Guest Ranch

Saddle up at the Flying U Guest Ranch. The ranch, complete with a saloon and a museum of cowboy history, has been in the riding and roping business for over 80 years. Food is simple but hearty, log cabins are rustic and the nearest thing to a spa is a sauna and a dip in Green Lake. The Flying U is also one of the few ranches where guests can ride unaccompanied on the surrounding trails, lakeshore and pastures - the horses know the way home. In the evenings, gussy up for a hoedown at the Longhorn Saloon.

The Hills Health Ranch

At The Hills Guest Ranch, near 108 Mile Ranch, you can ride or hike across thousands of acres of Cariboo rangeland, relax in the indoor pool, hot tub or sauna, or book a wrap or a massage with healing herbs grown on the ranch. This is a down-home kind of place, and has been one of BC’s favourite family-friendly ranch and spa getaways since 1985.

Siwash Lake Ranch

At Siwash Lake Ranch, possibly Canada’s greenest dude ranch, you can ride, hike, mountain bike, canoe, and fish. This is a luxurious, off-the-grid working ranch that runs with the smallest possible footprint. It’s all about minimal impact - but roughing it is never part of the equation. You’ll enjoy organic, locally grown food, private lake-view balconies, and crackling wood fires. Siwash Lake is a great place to try glamping – the ranch’s spacious safari-style canvas cabins come complete with ensuite bathrooms and sundecks.
