Activities/Attractions: The Chilcotin region of British Columbia is located between the Coast Mountains and the Central Interior of BC. Highway 20 runs from Bella Coola to Williams Lake, linking the Central Coast with the Central Interior as it crosses the Coast Mountains and the Chilcotin Plateau. Highway 20 passes through diverse landscapes ranging from grassy plateaus and rolling meadows to picturesque canyons and high mountain peaks. Roads off the highway provide access to excellent views of the Coast Mountain Range, as well as important backcountry lakes.

The magnificent 17,575 hectare (43,430 acre) Homathko River -Tatlayoko Protected Area protects the spectacular Homathko River Valley and the western shore of Tatlayoko Lake and preserves a low elevation transect of the Coast Mountains, from the wet rainforest to the dry interior Douglas fir forests. It attracts fishermen, hikers, trail riders, windsurfers, and expert river kayakers. While this is a remote area in southern BC, its grandeur makes Homathko River-Tatlayoko well worth visiting.

Bracewell’s specializes in horse pack trips and excellent alpine Nordic walking in the beautiful Coastal Mountains in British Columbia. They do day horseback rides and hiking out of the lodge as well, if you’d like to spend the day in the alpine and the night in a comfy bed. Additionally, guests can take part in lake or river fishing.

From the lodge we have a variety of marked hiking trails of different durations available to our guests.

We are a Canadian family of professional hunters with a background of 75 years of big game guiding in the same area.

The 360 acres of property has a mystique of its own and can take days of skiing to explore.

General Information: Welcome to the Bracewell's Alpine Wilderness Adventures ... where we have invested three generations in the development and sharing of the Chilcotin area of British Columbia, Canada. Taking guests safely into the Coast mountains by horseback or to fish alone on a quiet lake that stretches further than the eye can see, you too can come and experience the legends.

Our area is both the most rugged and the most peaceful - perfect for the range of folks we cater to. And we also offer special tours for people with disabilities & wheelchair access. Mother Nature has outdone herself with it comes to Tatlayoko Valley and the area surrounding the lodge. As you drive down into the valley, you find yourself saying, "Oh my goodness, this is incredible." Those at Bracewell find themselves saying that quite often.
