Going Places: South Chilcotin

” After we arrived at our first camp, Seb said something that really stuck with me (and even 6 months later, I still think about it almost daily); he said, “all we have to do today is eat enough to bike all day”. In a world so fast paced, internet and data reliant, with a million things to get done everyday, you inevitably become disconnected with yourself, and nature. It was the perfect reminder to slow down, enjoy the company you’re with and your surroundings, and be super stoked that you are riding your bike in the wild on some unreal trails!”

History of Our 5 Historic Backcountry Camps/Cabins

Tyax Adventures’ Backcountry Camps have a rich history dating back to 1947 during which time hunters, miners, outdoor enthusiasts and hard working locals enjoyed, built and maintained these camps. In 2012, Tyax Adventures acquired these backcountry camps from Spruce Lake Wilderness Adventures, which was owned and operated by the Menhinick family. The Menhinick family is a hard working family of many generations that made their living by horse packing into the Chilcotin and put countless hours into maintaining the camps and trails for everyone of both yesterday and today to enjoy. The Douglas family and Tyax Adventures, are honoured to have the opportunity to carry on the legacy of these remote and unique backcountry camps.
