Just driving through the Rockies is an experience, but there is so much more that you could be doing. What about leaving the vehicle for a few days of hiking through the Chilcotin Mountains either with a guide or for the more adventurous heading out on a self guided trek.
Each guided trip is geared to the ability of those taking part and also take in to account your budget, hiking skills and your interests. Whether you want to see the amazing array of meadow flowers or the wildlife will determine the route that you take. As you head up on the ridges and valleys into a pure nature experience you have the benefit of all your camping equipment, food and your heavy luggage following you on a Mountain Cayuse horse. This leaves you free to enjoy the flowers, the trail and the wildlife and take those much admired photos.
Your guide are all professionally trained and have a huge amount of local knowledge and history to tell you. With a past that includes the gold rush and the Indians of the areas, there is much to learn.
For the more independent traveller, you can elect to go on a self guided hike – all you have to do is book the campsites you want to visit and then load your provisions on to the pack horses provided.
While here why not combine your hike with one of the other activities – gold panning, horse riding, wildlife viewing, target shooting, archery and axe throwing are just some of the other attractions while staying on a real ranch.
For the fishermen there is the chance to fish for rainbow trout in lakes that are so remote that you either have to walk, ride or float plane in to them. With the average trout being 2lbs and the big ones weighing in at 5lbs you will have a good fight on your hands.
This is still a wildlife area with good numbers of grizzlies, black bears, deer, wolves, bighorn sheep and mountain goats. Mix these with a host of birds and a carpet of wild flowers and you have plenty to keep you occupied.
