Activities on the ranch


Horseback Riding

Are you ready to break away from the treadmill of everyday life? Yes? Well then giddy up and get ready for a beautiful horseback ride through the Crownlands of British Columbia.

Adjusted to your riding abilities, we will guide you through the forest, open fields and through water. We go out on trail rides in small groups, from 2 hours, including a snack or lunch and water that will be packed in your personal saddlebag, up to an exciting day ride (about 8 hours). Adjusting to your daily program, we try our best to take you out on a ride when you feel like it. During the hot summer days, after a long ride, you will also have the opportunity to go swim with your horse in Henley Lake at our ranch. There are so many trail areas to explore, so you can have a new adventure every day you're with us!


Mountainbiking

British Columbia is Canada’s most mountainous province and home to some of the world’s most diverse mountain biking terrain. Downhill, freeride, cross country, epic, all-mountain...it’s all here! Community trails, festivals, races, camps and tours are all available and together create the ultimate Mountain Biking BC experience. BC welcomes riders of all levels from around the globe to ride on the terrain we call home.


Swimming / Canoeing / Kayaking

Having Henley Lake only a couple of footsteps away, gives you the opportunity to go either swimming or go out by canoe or by kayak, whenever you feel like it.  All the equipment is included if you choose to stay at our ranch.

 

There are many, many lakes closeby...so many, that some don't even have a name! If you wish, by leaving a small deposit, you can take one of our canoes or kayaks along for a day to go explore one of the other beautiful lakes British Columbia has to offer.



Quading/Hiking

"Not til we are completely lost or turned around...do we begin to find ourselves"

Henry David Thoreau

Do you feel like going on a beautiful and adventurous hike through the Crown Lands adjacent to Wettstone Guest Ranch? You can head out on your own, or Martin or Daniela will be more than happy to join you and show you our favourite spots in the area. 

Don't forget to take along lunch or a snack and enjoy nature with a cold beer... or let us know and we will gladly pack you a lunch bag with some goodies for the way. Take the camera too for that all-important selfie when your goal has been reached!

 

Do you want to explore the Cariboo on a Quad, drive through rivers and over tree stumps? We are happy to provide you with our recommendations for Quad rentals.  But be prepared to get wet, dirty and have a lot of fun!
