Due to its origins, the Chilko Experience is arguably the one of the nicest wilderness rec facilities in North America. Built as a private estate for the comfort of friends and family the guiding principal was not return on Invest but rather architectural style and comfort. Pioneer Log Homes of BC, the best log home builder in the world, was the general contractor and it shows.
However the Chilko Experience was named for the experiences to be found on the 5M acre wilderness tract on which it is located. Chilko Lake is the largest alpine lake in North America and known for its beauty. Ringed by mountains and glaciers, 300m in depth and a feed exclusively by snow and glacier melt it is one of the purest bodies of water on the planet. The outflowing Chilko River has world class fly fishing and white water rafting in addition to 1M spawning sockeye salmon each fall. The spawn draws in over 100 Grizzly bears offering some of the best bear viewing in Canada.
The all-inclusive estate offering includes lodging in a log or timber frame home, all meals are chef prepared, an open bar and ten guided activities. This includes horseback and ATV trail rides, lake and river cruises, fishing, hiking, kayaking & canoeing, paddle boarding, swimming, bear viewing, photography and a Viking axe range. Not enough then saddle up and come meet the locals and you will soon see why the Chilcotin in called BC’s last frontier. When you are at the Chilko Experience you are an insider, not a tourist.
