Chilcotin Holidays

Take our top guide schools and live the cowboy lifestyle

Women Guides Carry on Wild West Tradition at Chilcotin Holidays

Wranglers and wilderness guides -often labeled cowboys- are a part of life in the Canadian Cariboo-Chilcotin in southwestern British Colombia. At Chilcotin Holidays Wilderness Guest Ranch you'll find the traditional cowboy - more females than males- with gun in scabbard taking our guests up into the heart of grizzly bear country on our Cayuse mountain horses. The Cayuse are mixed breeds originally from the wild horse herds still roaming free in the the Chilcotin Mountain Range.

Today you need a license to carry shotguns and rifles, which all our guides do, for the safety of guests in the wilderness where grizzly and black bears roam at large. Being armed with a firearm and satellite phone is just one part of being responsible for a large group of people in the wilderness, some with no horse experience. It's a tall task of responsibilities, caring for guests and being a steward of the environment -avoiding confrontations with wild animals and conscious of our environmental footprint.

After being trained as a wilderness guide at Canadian Wilderness Tourism Training Center- the only educational facility in Canada offering certified wilderness guide training, and one of the top guide schools globally- our graduates go on to find employment opportunities in adventure tourism and wilderness operations throughout the world.
