A quiet rural community that sits at the foot of the imposing Coast Mountains and around a 5-hour drive north of Vancouver.

Under the guidance of the experts you will pick your very own trusty steed for the 7-day adventure who will take you on treks through the mountains. And when not on horseback you will have the opportunity to go mountain-biking, head out on a hike, try your hand at gold-panning, fish in the local river plus yo will have plenty of time to keep your eyes peeled to spot the local wild- and bird-life so make sure you have your camera at the ready! And depending on the time of year you stay at Big Creek Ranch you could organise an overnight camping experience to get even closer to nature. After all these activities you may be in need of time to relax which could include a dip in the hot tub whilst the kids head to the games room.
