Rediscover your range


Big Bar Guest Ranch

Kick Up your Heels

Nestled between the majestic Marble Mountains and the mighty Fraser River is Big Bar Guest Ranch - historic, timeless and never out-of-style. It’s a cowpoke palace, nestled amongst the pristine grasslands of British Columbia’s Cariboo. We promise you’ll rediscover yourself, learn new things about each other, and get back to the simple things that matter most and started it all.

A rustic retreat without pretence, Big Bar guests are welcomed like family. Laid back and friendly professional service is delivered with the goal of having you leave feeling like Big Bar Ranch is your personal "Home on the Range.” Have your breakfast prepared just the way you like it,  breathe in the smell of pine wafting on the air from the seat of your saddle overlooking the Fraser River, or take a bottle of wine back to your cabin to catch the sun set over the mountain.

Experience Freedom on Horseback

Our Horses

The horses at Big Bar Guest Ranch are the heart of the ranch community. With a happy and healthy herd of roughly forty members, we feel confident that we can match each rider with a horse that will suit their skill-set and provide the equestrian experience they are seeking.

 

Our Trails

Our trail rides take us over gradual hillsides and wide open meadows of diverse wild flowers. We traverse historic cattle country and ponder majestic views of vast untouched wilderness. The “old west” still lives in the shadows of the valleys in this countryside, its richness almost tangible as your heels touch the tall grass from the back of your horse.

Our riding

Our knowledgeable Wranglers will match each horse to rider and all experience levels are welcome. Big Bar Guest Ranch has over 200,000 acres of countryside to explore and a few options for how to do that to create your ideal horseback riding adventure.

Big Bar Guest Ranch also provides the opportunity for an abundance of different activities to keep you unplugged, active and out in nature. Hit the trails on foot for an outstanding array of hiking trails from intermediate to advanced all day hikes. Head out on our private lake with one of the ranch canoes or paddle boats. Try a hand at trout fishing or paddle down to view the amazing construction skills of our local beavers.
