Call of the Winter Wild Wilderness, Moose, Wolves & Nature at Pyna-Tee-Ah Lodge
The solitude, peace and beauty of winter in this mountain wilderness fills your senses as you interact with nature and wildlife during this 4 to 6 night trip. Learn about wildlife behavior, habitat and their amazing adaptability to the often harsh conditions of the Canadian winter.
As the snow deepens in the high country the animals move to wintering grounds in lower elevations and valley bottoms. The viewing area is an amazing wild wintering ground for Canada Moose. Come to understand the relationship between wolves and moose in Canadas north country. Animals you can see in this winter wonderland include timber wolves, moose, mountain caribou, deer, lynx, cougar, mule deer as well as members of the weasel family - marten, fisher, mink, otter, ermine and perhaps a glimpse of the shy and reclusive wolverine. In the quiet of the winter evenings listen to the howl of the wolves as the aurora borealis dance overhead.

Arrive at Likely, BC. The best way to get to this remote part of British Columbia is to fly to Williams Lake from where you can either hire a car or be collected. Settle in and get to know your hosts (human and canine) and relax with a glass of wine before a home-cooked dinner.
Your activities will include the following:
Snowshoeing - Get a taste of the main means of transportation of the early pioneers, furtraders, and miners. Snowshoeing is fun and easy. If you can walk, you can snowshoe. Enjoy an outdoor adventure on snowshoes – the quiet swish of the snow under your feet as you and your guide observe wildlife in their winter habitat will be an abiding memory. You might well see both wolves and moose.
Dog Sledding - Ride a dog sled pulled by a team of 6-8 trained working dogs with a skilled musher as sled master. Or with a short orientation and instructional session you can guide your own sled and team of dogs. Thrill to the raw power of the specially bred Husky teams as they speed along the trails taking you into the heart of the Cariboo Mountains winter wilderness wonderland. This was another means of winter transport of the early pioneers. A fun way to observe nature in the back country.
Winter Hiking - Under the protection of the forest canopy the snow is often not deep making it a perfect place for winter hiking. Dressed warmly with a good pair of winter hikers or snowpack boots it is a wonderful way to spend a day exploring the forest in search of wildlife inhabitants and birds.
Includes 4 nights accommodation at the Pyna-Tee-Ah Lodge, all meals, and all excursions.
