Fly Fishing

Fly fishing, a blend of adventure and wellness, offers a unique experience that unfolds just steps away from your accommodation at Echo Valley. Casting a line becomes a form of meditation, demanding complete mindfulness and unwavering focus.

The rhythmic motion of casting is almost a meditative journey, grounding you firmly in the present moment. Mastering the art of casting requires skill, and our knowledgeable guides will ensure you learn all the tricks of the trade. Your journey begins with a dry-land lesson to refine your technique and control over the line. Then, by the water’s edge, you’ll have the chance to make that perfect cast, aiming to hook a majestic 10-pound rainbow trout. While it’s a catch-and-release endeavour in the wilderness, the excitement is absolutely undeniable.

Rods and tackle are readily available, and the prime times for catching the most sizeable fish are during the serene hours of dawn and dusk.

The roots of archery trace back to roughly 6000 BC when it journeyed from Alaska to the Americas, becoming a cherished tradition passed through generations. It’s an art that demands inner tranquility amidst moments of heightened excitement, requiring a fusion of unwavering focus and the harmonious alignment of body and mind.

At Echo Valley, we invite you to rekindle your connection with this captivating sport. Our Archery Adventure offers the use of recurve bows under the guidance of a skilled instructor, tailored to your proficiency. You’ll be surprised by the diverse muscle groups you engage—a perfect prelude to unwinding later through a soothing yoga session or a rejuvenating spa treatment.




Adventures await at our shooting range, an exhilarating experience in the wilderness lasting about 1-2 hours—a perfect complement to your morning or afternoon explorations or a tranquil spa retreat.

Under the watchful eye of a licensed, seasoned guide, you’ll have the opportunity to fire firearms of various calibers. Safety is our foremost concern, so we begin with an introductory session covering proper handling, shooting techniques, and firearm maintenance.

When the moment arrives, feel the rifle stock nestled against your shoulder, hone in on the target, and expertly squeeze the trigger. Bullseye! It’s an electrifying experience you won’t soon forget.
