Experience one of North America’s most beautiful destinations on a horseback riding vacation!
Tsylos Park Lodge – Easy to Get too Far from the Crowds.
Tsylos Park Lodge is located at Chilko Lake, an hour charter flight north of Vancouver, BC. It one of the most beautiful and pristine areas in North America. Wild, remote, and fairly isolated, it is seldom visited and largely untouched. Chilko is like a rare gem, few people have discovered it, but once discovered, it is rarely forgotten. There are few places in the world as beautiful to explore.
Restore, Relax, and Connect. At Tsylos you enjoy a rare opportunity to enjoy your private time and your vacation. Tsylos is a place to reawaken your spirit and rediscover life’s simple joys. Since no cell phone or Internet is available (except for emergencies) true connections are made.
Amazing people. At Tsylos our guest join us from around the globe, but all have a few things in common. The love of Adventure, a passion for horses, and the thrill of discovering extraordinary places. From friends, couples, families, to single travelers, at Tsylos old bonds are restored and new ones are born. The number of guests is small, and the environment is intimate and inclusive, even if you’re a single traveler.
