Holidays on Horseback: Bear Claw Lodge
Bear Claw Lodge is located in British Columbia’s Kispiox Valley, just one-and-a-half hours’ drive north of Smithers, BC. Bear Claw features a 15,000 square foot post-and-beam luxury lodge on the world-famous Kispiox River, and more than 50 kilometers of well groomed trails, meadows, river canyons, and hills to explore. Pristine landscapes, snow-capped mountains, wild rivers, and an abundance of wildlife are the setting for a great equine experience. Gene and Joy Allen and family have been involved in the horse industry for generations, and have put together a remarkable string of quiet, reliable and people-friendly horses that have spent their lives in the surrounding mountains.
Choose daily trail riding from the lodge, share a gourmet lunch at Bear Tail cabin overlooking the Kispiox River, then return in the afternoon to relax in the river rock jacuzzi and outdoor cedar sauna. There are also options to embark on a mountain pack trip, high up in the Baldy Mountain Range. Campfire cooking is their specialty!
Whatever holiday you’re looking for, the team at Bear Claw Lodge will design a horse vacation to suit your level of comfort. Their trail guides have spent many years cowboying on ranches and rodeos, and outfitting in BC’s wilderness. Their wit, sense of humour, and countless stories will entertain you, and they will be sure to keep you safe during your stay with us.
