Chilcotin Home Base

50°57’07.20″ N 122°46’22.20 W – South Chilcotin Mountains

We operate from our home-base at Tyax Wilderness Resort & Spa. Set on the shores of  Tyaughton Lake, this beautiful luxury wilderness resort is located approximately 5 hours by car North of Vancouver or 1.5 hours West of Lillooet, in the heart of the South Chilcotin. But if driving is not your preference, let us pick you up in our De Havilland Beaver float plane for a short 30 minute flight from Whistler, or a quick hour flight from Vancouver International Airport.

The South Chilcotin Mountains are truly magical and rich with pioneer history, and vast untrammeled wilderness. Located one hundred kilometres north of Whistler, the South Chilcotin mountains are British Columbia’s newest provincial park. The 72,000-hectare park boasts some of the best backcountry hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking in BC. Beautiful wildflower meadows, mountain goats, grizzly bears, big horn sheep, humming birds and crystal clear alpine lakes are found throughout the park – all making it a true ecological and recreational wonder.
