Chilcotin Ark Institute

  • From the first day, I learned that the wilderness has no time for our self-pity. I learned to take responsibility for myself, to take more initiative and that attitude is everything. My leadership skills grew daily and by the time I left Chilcotin Holidays, my attitude about life changed drastically. When I returned to Germany I had clear goals to pursue.


  • We all felt connected to nature and seeing those bears as we set off after our stay was possibly the most exciting thing ever! Truly wild bears……and the bird life at the lake was fabulous not to mention those wild flowers!! Stunning.

  • Thank you Chilcotin Holidays for a fabulous vacation! It exceeded my expectations. Our all women team of guide and guides in training were fantastic and inspirational in their strength, knowledge, and resourcefulness. Kristin, Angy and Veronika were amazing. My friends, Helen and Linda, made for an all women pack trip that was exceptional.


  • I was confronted with my fears, flaws, and strengths, which was very scary but extremely valuable. Now, I have clear goals, and feel more connected to nature than ever!


  • The horseback riding experience took us completely out of our urban lives and into an experience of fresh mountain air, no cell service, and complete stillness.
