Cellular service is available for smartphones with 3G networks but can only be accessed from specific locations on the property. Wi-Fi is available in the main lodge.

Weather and Seasons

The lodge is open June to September. Temperatures can be hot during the summer months, while cold and wet conditions are not uncommon in early June and late September. Conditions change quickly on the Cariboo plateau; come prepared for all types of weather.

What to Bring

While there is no dress code at the ranch, smart-casual attire is typically worn at dinner. Since weather conditions can be unpredictable even in the summer months, plan accordingly and pack activewear that can be layered. The lodge provides fishing equipment and licenses, swim towels, and boots and helmets for guests who do not have their own riding apparel.

Traveling with Family

Siwash strives to offer engaging wilderness excursions that are carefully crafted to encourage quality time among families. All accommodations can host groups traveling with children, and the ranch’s meadows, forests, and waterfalls create a natural playground where kids can interact with wildlife and learn about the environment.
