Siwash Lake Ranch
BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA
“We had an amazing long weekend at Siwash Lake. It’s one of the best ranches in Canada, and absolutely the best in BC. I was attracted by the ‘Synergy with Horses’ programme, but there is equally enough for beginner or hobby riders – or even non-riders. The Ranch also boasts trout fishing, canyon hikes, canoeing, shooting and wilderness survival. And let’s not forget the lovely tented spa...
My worry on ranch vacations is that while the activities are top notch, some of the other amenities suffer. Not so at Siwash. Rooms are contemporary rustic, and extremely comfortable. We stayed in one of the canvas tents, and it felt authentic and luxurious at the same time. I loved sitting on the sundeck reading after a long ride, overlooking the lake and sipping a glass of good BC wine before dinner. The restaurant serves an excellent menu of local produce grown on site or foraged nearby.
What really struck me wasn’t just the beautiful setting and the host of activities – it was the staff. There’s a real family atmosphere and everyone seems so happy to be there and so welcoming. We’ll definitely be back!”

An outdoor adventure where riding takes center stage.
We were a couple, but kids are well catered for.

No gym – but who needs one here?!
