South Chilcotin Traverse

If you would like to experience the Canadian wilderness but don't want to carry a full pack in order to do so this is a great opportunity for you. Three nights at the luxury Tyax Resort and three nights travelling from camp to camp gives you an easier vacation but with just as much and nature and scenery to enjoy. As you will be travelling between huts and camps run by Tyax you will only need to carry your own personal clothing. Shelter, food and sleeping bags will all be waiting for you at the day's end.


DAY ONE - We depart from Whistler at 10am to drive the scenic Duffey Lake Road to Lillooet. Here on the dry side of the Coast Mountains we turn west and head into the Chilcotins along Carpenter Lake Road, another very scenic route. Arriving at the luxury Tyax Wilderness Resort we can unpack and relax for the late afternoon and early evening before organising our packs. You might want to take a swim in the lake or paddle a canoe before dinner in this luxury wilderness lodge.

DAY TWO - Guides from Tyax Adventures will transport you to a trailhead from where you will begin your hike. You will spend the next fours days and three nights in their company moving between huts and fixed camps.

DAY THREE - As for day two.

DAY FOUR - As for day two.

DAY FIVE - Returning to Tyax Resort by late afternoon you will again have the use of their facilities for free.

DAY SIX - A full day at Tyax Resort allows you to take advantage of their facilities such as the spa or canoes. Or you may want to book a mountain biking or horse riding trip or even a scenic floatplane ride.

DAY SEVEN - Departing Tyax after a leisurely breakfast we head back to Whistler arriving in mid-afternoon.
