Equestrian - Clayoquot Wilderness Resorts


The Outpost's stable of 20 endurance horses and double teams of draft horses promise unbridled fun and adventure. Ride through the many stunning trails in and around the Outpost, through old-growth forest, across streams and rivers, to the edge of Strathcona Provincial Park, watching for bear along the way.

Visit the abandoned gold mines of "Bear City", a turn-of-the-century mining town that boomed and busted many times between the great Yukon Rush and WWII. Explore the Bedwell's own "Jurassic Park", a remote area of deep old-growth forest where ancient cedars reach 40-ft in circumference and ferns reach gigantic proportions.

Something for Everyone

Horseback riding adventures are available for all ages and inclinations. Gallop like the wind through super-oxygenated forest trails, or plod slowly along a stream bed or abandoned logging road. Riding boots and chaps (slickers too, if weather dictates) are provided for all ages. Bike helmets recommended (and provided) for young children. Experienced guides offer expert instruction.
