National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World has added BC’s prestigious Siwash Lake Ranch to it’s “network of world-class accommodations where sustainability is the touchstone and the guest experience is exceptionally rich and meaningful.”
The network is comprised of a collection of boutique hotels in remarkable destinations around the globe and Siwash Lake Ranch is one of just three in destinations in Canada to receive this distinguished honour .
“We are delighted to be working with National Geographic,” said Allyson Rogers, founder of Siwash Lake Ranch. “Being welcomed into the fold of National Geographic means we can make a more powerful impact in helping to preserve this spectacular land and showcase Super, Natural British Columbia.”
By helicopter safari, Siwash guests explore the mighty Fraser River basin; they soar over sandstone hoodoos, discover native petroglyphs, pan for gold, and then alight on an Alpine ridge for a walk amid wildflowers, with sweeping views of the Cariboo plateau. Or they can ride horseback on a full-day trail excursion with a private guide, pausing to enjoy lunch cooked over an open fire high atop a scenic mountain bluff.
The ranch at Siwash Lake is a private hideaway located in the rugged heartland of British Columbia. Spread throughout 80,000 acres of pure Canadian wilderness, Siwash guiding territory features rolling hills, grasslands, lush forests and a majestic river canyon. Sustainability is at the heart of this solar powered resort, where 5-star cuisine is prepared from food grown on the ranch or foraged from the wilds nearby, and an extensive activity program offers adventures to suit all. Authentic frontier accommodations feature the ranch’s legendary canvas cabins—lavish safari tents with nature all around.
