Canada dude ranch The Ranch at Siwash Lake is Top50’s latest addition to its exclusive range of quality dude ranch vacations. At Siwash Lake, an authentic 4th-generation luxury dude ranch, guests can expect nothing but the best and most personalised and luxurious dude ranch vacation. This exclusive, intimate hideaway offers action-packed adventure in the remote and rugged heartland of British Columbia – from wilderness survival and skeet shooting, to fishing for trout on sparkling waters, to mountain biking in the back country and canoeing across the shimmering Siwash Lake.

Of course, no Canada dude ranch vacation would be complete without horseback riding, and Siwash Lake offers one of Canada’s best and most unique riding programs. Catering for beginner to advanced riders, Siwash Lake gives each guest their own personal horse for the duration of their stay, whether they choose to take private rides with a guide for one-on-one tuition to hone their riding skills and learn about the ranch’s nature and history, or simply head out on their own for an unescorted horseback ride through the BC wilderness over 80,000 acres of pristine rangeland. Horseback riding is always tailored to guests’ needs and is available for as little or as often as they wish – whether it’s an hour in the saddle here and there or all-day rides. Guests choosing the latter can ride down to the river for swimming, fishing and a campfire picnic; to a high mountain bluff for an exquisite view; or an epic seven-hour trip through canyons to breathtaking waterfalls.

Tired muscles can be soothed with a relaxing treatment in the luxury tented spa, be it a relaxation or deep-tissue massage, manicure, facial or pedicure. And when all that riding, adventuring and pampering has conjured up a royal appetite, guests can sit down to dining fit for a king. Fresh, healthy food reigns at Siwash Lake, and their ranch-grown, local, organic fare rivals that of fine city dining. The Canada dude ranch serves up delicious, designer food that is simple, clean, not overly intricate and most certainly light, healthy and nourishing. Appetites satiated, guests can retire to peaceful sleep amidst the softest linens in the ranch’s rustically refined honey-hued log cabins, or cozy under canvas beneath the stars in luxury tented accommodations.

What really sets this Canada dude ranch apart from the rest is its personal, intimate service. Taking a maximum of 16-24 guests, Siwash Lake’s 14 staff will ensure royal pampering and personalised hospitality. Families, too, are welcome, with the dude ranch offering a quality children’s program for guests wishing to pre-arrange.

For the ultimate, intimate Canada dude ranch vacation, it has to be The Ranch at Siwash Lake.
