The Red Cariboo Resort is correct at the heart of British Columbia, in the West Chilcotin district. It belongs to the community of Anahim Lake, which extends with only a few inhabitants per 6,52 square kilometres. So if civilization has become a bit too cramped, you will find a natural paradise, in whose solitude you can rediscover yourself and the wonderful nature.

Highway 20, also known as the "Chilcotin-Bella Coola Highway," runs 457 km from Williams Lake westward to Bella Coola, located at the North Bentinck Arm, an inlet from the Pacific Ocean. Shortly after Anahim Lake, the highway turns into a gravel road for the next 57 km, called "The Hill."

Half of the inhabitants of the entire region are descendants of the original inhabitants of the "Ulkatcho First Nation," an indigenous community belonging to the "Dakelh." At the same time, the indigenous community of the adjacent "Tsilhqot'in" also lives here.

Red Cariboo Resort has two different locations:

The entrance to the Red Cariboo Resort, which is our main property, is located at 23302 Hwy 20, Anahim Lake. It contains an area of 60 hectares. You can find the cabins on this property, just like the main house and the stables. The resort directly connects to the banks of the Dean River over a length of 800 meters. The distance from the cabins to the river is about 300 meters. The distance to Anahim Lake-town is about a 3000 meters walk.
