Riding a well-trained horse through untouched nature.
Whether as a guided tour in a group or as a short ride out at the Dean River, our well-trained horses are trained routinely and are free ranging on the property. Pre-discovered trails offer an unforgettable riding and nature experience from a very special perspective.
You are able to book our well-trained and quiet horses by the hour or by day. We will help you to choose the right horse for you. Some riding experience is helpful but not mandatory. Expected to be available from summer 2018.
Hiking means experiencing nature from close by.
Whether as a couple or in a group – the natural landscape of British Columbia shows a fascinating sight in every season. Lots of green and upcoming flowers in early summer, the golden-red forest in Indian summer or the glittering powder snow during Canadian winter – imagine all of this combined with pure silence and solitariness, which is very rare in central Europe.
Off-road on a quad.
When did you last venture a breathtaking ride off the beaten tracks? You can fully enjoy the freedom on a quad ride at the Dean River. We pass flowering meadows, drive through shallow water of the Anahim Lake or go through the hills to enjoy the beautiful views. You can enjoy the four-wheel quad experience as a guided tour in a group.
Mountain biking in the vastness of British Columbia.
There are endless trails to enjoy a great bike ride. You will always bike on natural ground, whether this is fine gravel, green meadows or rocky passages instead of some regular forest roads. Everyone will find the right track according to their personal standards and skills. Our high-quality and robust mountain bikes can be rented by the hour or day.
Paradise for fishermen.
The Dean River, which flows through Anahim Lake just down along the Red Cariboo Resort on its way to the Pacific, is an ideal destination for serious sport fishermen. The cold waters are home to magnificent rainbow trout, brown trout and white fish. The shallow parts at the mouth of the Anahim Lake are very good for fly fishing. The required fishing license can be purchased online. We are happy to let you rent the right equipment in case you do not want to bring your own.
Canoeing on the Anahim Lake.
For those who like to move gently and quietly on the water, like the natives of British Columbia, while enjoying the silence, should take a canoe trip on the Anahim Lake. A canoe trip during summer on the Dean River is possible too because of the low water level and extreme low flow. The Anahim Lake offers an unforgettable canoeing experience thanks to its huge water surface and natural shorelines. Our high-quality canoes (two persons per canoe) will be rented out by the day. We arrange transport to and from the lake shore.
In addition, we offer maneuverable aluminum boats with engines for fishing or cruising on the Anahim Lake.
Wildlife watching in the Chilcotin.
The Cariboo Chilcotin Coast is famous for its abundant wildlife. Even just driving along the highway, you may be able to see grizzly and black bears, mountain goats, wolves, moose, caribou and bighorn sheep foraging for food along the road. For bird watchers, BC is a paradise with more than a million birds migrating on the Pacific flyway path, thousands of birds stopping or staying year-round. Various species of eagles, seagulls, pelicans, swans and herons cavort on the numerous lakes and rivers. Every autumn, pacific salmon make their way from the coast to their spawning grounds far into the coast’s interior, a fascinating phenomenon. There is ample opportunity to view wildlife in spring and summer as well, when bears are waking up from hibernation, many animals are giving birth and lush, green grass emerges from underneath the snow.
Looking up at our dark, starry sky far away from the light pollution of the cities, inspires not only romantics and astronomers. When was the last time you saw the Milky Way with your bare eyes and lost yourself in infinity? It spans us in the midst of natural darkness like a brightly shining roof. On a clear night there are numerous constellations to admire and more stars visible than you can count. Make yourself comfortable on our special star observation platform and enjoy the vastness of the cosmos in the middle of the remote wilderness.
