In the South Cariboo region of British Columbia, the Spirit of the Wild West lives on. This is cowboy country and trekking by horseback remains a very pleasant way to explore the rolling grassland, alpine meadows and open forests that make up the region. Your horse trip can be as tame or wild as you desire. Stay in that extremely civilized, luxurious lodge, with its pool, hot tub and sauna, gourmet restaurant and warm bed - or camp out under the stars, snug in a bedroll; awaken to the distant howl of a coyote and the aroma of bacon frying over an open fire. The South Cariboo has an array of guest ranches where you can experience the cowboy way of life.
