Like no Place on

Earth

BC’s rugged Cariboo-Chilcotin area is home to the Secwepemc First Nations People and the historical “Gold Rush Trail”. Our 160 acre ranch sits as an oasis at the convergence of four distinct geographic regions: Marble Mountains, Mighty Fraser River and Canyon Desert, Cariboo Plateau Boreal Forest and Cariboo Grasslands. Such iconic geography gifts us with diverse flora, fauna and wildlife, along with easy access to a variety of soft adventure activities. As you explore the magic of Echo Valley, we invite you to reflect on the wonder of the world you encounter.

The

Marble Mountains

These majestic peaks to the East provide a dramatic backdrop, showcasing fantastic views from almost anywhere on the ranch. The Marble Mountains are truly remarkable, their karst topography allows them to hold significant water reserves within their intricate system of caves, forming clear mountain springs. Sunset often turns the pale peaks a deep orange, a spectacle best enjoyed with a leisurely stroll after a farm-fresh dinner.

The

Grand Canyon of the North

To the South-West lies the mighty Fraser Canyon, a raw landscape of grassy benchlands along the longest river in BC, the Fraser River, intersected by deeply trenched gorges. Some call it the Grand Canyon of the North, and you’ll see why. It offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Gold Rush. A 3,500-foot descent leads from boreal forests into the desert-like conditions of the canyon and it becomes clear that the brave souls navigating the river in search of gold in the 1850s were truly pioneers. Experience the mighty Fraser River and our Grand Canyon up close during our Canyon Connection Tour.

The

The Cariboo Plateau

Bordering the ranch to the North-West is the boreal forest full of pines, spruce, fir, bushy ferns, and mossy tree stumps. A hike through the valley bottoms under the forested canopy will awaken your adventurous side. There is a lot to explore and our Border Collies make for excellent hiking companions during your forest adventures. Exploring the forests is equally exhilarating with a mountain bike, and a slow-paced forest bathing stroll will give you a chance to fully take in the awe-inspiring beauty of the land.

The

Grasslands

Rolling hills and pastures – the grasslands to the South East of Echo Valley offer an abundance of opportunities to enjoy the breathtaking nature near the ranch. Walk, bike or hike – the possibilities are as diverse as the landscape. Here you can cross creeks, often filled with spawning fish, or catch a glimpse of Marsh Wrens, Yellow-Headed Blackbirds and Sandhill Cranes. The grasslands are also home to beautiful stands of aspens and a walk through the whispering trees is especially breathtaking in early fall.
