Guest / Dude Ranch in British Columbia, Canada
Heffley Creek, British Columbia Dude Ranch
Located in the Southern Interior of British Columbia, Canada, and just 4 hours drive from Vancouver, the ranch is the perfect mid-way stop on your Western Canada road trip between Vancouver and Banff or Jasper.
Horseback riding is all we do here. We offer complete flexibility in the riding programme so that it is geared to the interest level of the guests. Regardless of whether this is your first horseback riding experience, or you are a seasoned rider, we will match you with the perfect horse and he will be yours for the duration of your stay. Guests are encouraged to spend time at the barn getting to know the horses they'll be riding and we offer a total immersion experience for those guests who want to have a more hands-on experience with all aspects of the care and ownership of their horse. Guided by our experienced Wranglers, we ride through the mountains surrounding the ranch on an extensive network of old logging roads and cattle trails through the forest, climbing as soon as we leave the gate.Whether you're travelling alone, with a partner or a group of friends, our small guest ranch
offers stunning views, great food, like-minded company and a peaceful, calm environment to relax, unwind and forget about the stresses of the real world.
Wake up in your cabin, have morning coffee on the porch watching the sunrise. Amble over to the lodge where a breakfast feast awaits you. Head down to the barn where your horse will be saddled and waiting for you. Ride out on the mountain trails to the east of the ranch, spot some deer, and meander back along the creek to the ranch. Take lunch on the deck and then after a short break, saddle up again and head out west through the forest trails. Return to the ranch in time to freshen up and enjoy a sundowner on the deck, followed by a 3-course dinner cooked by our resident Chef. After dinner, sit around the camp fire and relive the highlights of the day with your new found friends. Play a hand of cards, or a game of pool and then fall into bed in your cosy cabin hidden in the trees.
