"Canyon Ranchlands"
BC's Fraser Canyon Vacation Guest Ranch
Open year round is a quaint resort ranch
offering guided horseback rides through the beautiful Canyon Lands, accommodations and dining. Guests can enjoy the four distinct seasons; beautiful hot summer months, colorful falls, snow covered winter months and refreshing colorful springs.

              Located in the scenic Fraser Canyon of British Columbia.
North Bend is nestled on the dry side of BC's Coastal Mountain Range and is the gateway to the Nahatlatch and the Stein Valley Provincial Parks.
The area is becoming a popular holiday destination having local attractions and some of BC's best recreational back country.
About 2 hours east from Vancouver, Canyon Ranchlands is
family owned and operated. Over the last twenty years we've taken trips into BC's back country on horses. In 1998 we began to offer horseback adventures to enable others to enjoy the experience.  You do not have to ride to stay with us.
We believe anyone can ride. Our horses all love attention and are generally attentive to riders. Being gentle upon hearing the voices of youngsters, laid back for those not so sure about being in a saddle and ready to go with the tap of an experienced rider. Remember, like us some horses can be more energetic, inquisitive and even a bit mischievous.
The Creek Ride takes about an hour, through the woods, into a field and back along the creek. The River Ride takes you through the woods, open fields, down to the Fraser River, then back through the forest, along the rolling river side, back up to the fields and along the creek. Don't be surprised if you see wild life along any of the trails.
Jim and/or Joleen guide all rides at no extra cost and all the trails can be hiked.
Riders are required to wear hard soled footwear with a heel of no less than 1.5 centimeters and a high impact helmet for safety. Canyon Ranchlands has a selection of med. and small riding helmets and 1 large for Guest use. If more than one rider needs a large helmet the rider is responsible to bring their own. A parent and/or guardian(s) must sign for children and/or youth under 19 years of age.
