Backcountry Van Tour
This is a fully guided tour that takes guests to Farwell Canyon, one of the Chilcotin’s most beautiful destinations. This semi-desert canyon, carved by the Chilcotin River is surrounded by hoodoo formations and sweet smelling big brush sage. The day starts with a pick up at the Coast Hotel in Williams Lake. After a scenic drive into the west, we get out for a refreshing hike to the sand dunes. Your guide will tell you all about the flora and fauna of the area. Once we make it over to the sand dunes we can relax have a snack and enjoy the view. Bighorn sheep may be spotted amongst the spectacular scenery. When the hike is over your guide will take guests down to view some ancient pictographs as well as the old Gang Ranch homestead and tell you some stories of the area. Later, we will head down to one of the fishing spots along the Chilcotin River and try our hand at dip netting for salmon. When everyone has given it a try (optional) we will BBQ one up along with some additional fresh foods to end the day here in Farewell Canyon. Your guide will then bring guests back to Williams Lake where they can enjoy the rest of their evening.
