Rocky Mountain Buffalo Ranch in the Canadian Rockies

 
 

 

Enjoy a unique and exciting family adventure, in a stunning landscape. With buffalo roaming you can leave behind the ordinary and step into something wild and new!

The Canadian Rockies hold endless possibilities for fun and adventure. Here at the ranch you get a taste of wilderness with the comforts of home.

As a guest you’ll have your own private vacation rental on the ranch. Walking trails lead you to forests, meadows, pastures, wetlands, pond, year round creek and the Blaeberry River.

The chef in your family can stir up some gourmet natural buffalo from Rocky Mountain Buffalo Co., or visit one of the local restaurants that serve our fine natural meat...and of course we encourage you to add some BC wine for a truly Canadian dining experience.

 
 

 

 

 

Activities,

 
 

One of the ranch highlights will be to meet “Chester”, our 2400 lb. bull sire and his herd. With an unforgettable presence he will put a reverent smile on your face. As our guests you’ll get a close up “buffalo experience”, excellent photo-op, and if your interested, a full interpretive tour covering history, native art, and present day sustainable ranching of buffalo. Calving season which is late spring to early summer is an exciting time to visit the ranch. (Click here to see a few photos of our buffalo)

Many guests plan on using the ranch as a base camp to go off and explore and yet find that the family is happy relaxing and exploring right here on the ranch. The guest house is fully contained so you can feel like your in a home away from home. With your own professionally maintained outdoor hot tub, big fenced yard, bicycles, miles of walking trails, creek, pond, river, and wood fired sauna access, you can stay right here and enjoy.

If your looking for more thrill and excitement we can help you out with that. The Golden area holds opportunity for exciting fun and recreation. In the winter you'll find it a playground for winter sports. We are just minutes from world class skiing and snowboarding at the new Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, famous for it’s “champagne powder”! (Voted the best powder in North America and second best steeps by Skiing Magazine)

As well in the winter we have heli-skiing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, snow-shoeing, ice climbing and ice fishing. In the summer enjoy hiking, white water rafting, horseback riding, golfing, biking, kayaking, fishing, canoeing, paragliding and more! Bring your camera, it’s a special place for photography.

In the summer we also team up with local guides to offer you hoseback riding, alpine hiking, heli hiking, white water rafting, and air tours. (see our summer package tours)

The ranch itself is located on 80 acres of meadows, wetlands, and forest with 360 degree mountain views. Guests enjoy buffalo roaming, year round creeks and ponds with native fish, and pristine frontage along the Blaeberry River which is fed by the Mummery Glacier. We are surrounded by amazing vistas of the Canadian Rockies and the Purcell Mountains. Wildlife, such as elk, moose, wolves, bears, fox, mountain goats, osprey, bald eagles, and many other species of birds and native fish pass through this land. It is truly a spectacular place!
