To start planning your vacation to Echo Valley Ranch & Spa
Not your standard guest ranch, Echo Valley offers more of a soft adventure experience ideal for those who wish to perhaps just try riding for the first time or for a couple or family whose interests are not purely focussed on the riding.
Set in the heart of Cariboo country in a wonderfully scenic location, Echo Valley offers a very different experience. A combination of East meets West, guests can enjoy a ride in the morning and be pampered in the decadent Thai Spa in the afternoon.
Meals are enjoyed family style with an open kitchen and buzzing social feel. Varied cuisine is served, everything from an old fashioned ranch barbecue through to traditional Thai nights. Try and sit up at the kitchen counter and be wowed by the Master Chef's cooking demonstrations, tips and tasters. Cooking lessons can also be arranged by request.
Although adult only and orientated for most of the year, during July and August children are welcomed at the ranch and activities are planned to keep them happy and occupied whilst learning all about the ranch experience ensuring that parents have an opportunity to take advantage of some of the activities on offer too.
