british columbia canada

British Columbia is the most western Canadian state and Vancouver is its capital city.

We are featuring BC as one of our recommended healthy holiday destinations as it's home to Canada's finest riding, hiking, fly fishing and mountain biking ranch - which also just happens to have two spas, one Thai and one Western,

However you travel to Echo Valley Ranch & Spa, whether by air, road or rail, the journey is filled with spectacular landscapes.  It's located in the Cariboo region, rich with history of the gold rush and is Canada’s ‘cowboy country’.

The ranch sits in its own private valley surrounded by the rolling Cariboo Mountains with scented pine forests, hidden lakes, craggy peaks, breathtaking canyons and golden grasslands. From the time you enter Super Natural British Columbia to when you arrive at Echo Valley Ranch and Spa you will experience the wonders of nature!

International guests will most probably fly in to Vancouver, from where it is 435 km/270 miles to Echo Valley.  A private air charter to Echo Valley airport is a 50 minute flight from Vancouver.  However, if you choose to drive, you'll enjoy breath taking scenery the whole way there!

And if you want to spend a night or two in the gorgeous waterside city of Vancouver on you're way there or back, please let us know and we'll organise everything for you.
