Go horseback riding in BC Canada’s Fraser Canyon when visiting the South Cariboo region
Are you visiting British Columbia’s South Cariboo area for the first time? Below is a list of “Insider Tips” for things to see and do in this Canadian region.
When I have a visitor from out of town, I take them to the Fraser Canyon near the ranch and across the Fraser to the grasslands of Canada’s famous Gang Ranch.
If you are looking for British Columbia cowboy cuisine, I recommend Ric’s Grill in Kamloops.
Looking for a quiet place to escape and unplug? Check out Big Bar Guest Ranch.
When you come to Big Bar Guest Ranch, get your picture taken on Big Bar Mountain overlooking the Fraser Canyon.
Seeing a lot of cowboy hats? The South Cariboo area is known for rugged cowboys, wildlife and spectacular scenery.
For an expensive, yet quality meal, go to Ric’s Grill in Kamloops.
In the South Cariboo, take your picture with a magnificent horse.
The best vantage points are taken by walking to the top of Lookout Mountain or Big Bar Mountain.
The Big Bar Mountain offers great views and is the best place to watch or experience wildlife, including Big Horn Mountain Sheep. During my visit to Echo Valley Ranch, bear and deer were spotted.
In the Big Bar area, outdoor enthusiasts will want to hike, bike and horseback ride.
