Horseback Riding Expedition in Canada

Spend three days in British Columbia’s spectacular Coast Mountain range! During this time, you’ll explore the beautiful mountain range between Birkenhead Lake and the Li-lik-hel mine. Copper Cayuse Outfitters will lead you in search for gold on this historic Li-lik-hel mine expedition!

Copper Cayuse Outfitters' base camp is comfortable and features, 8 man platform tents (only sleep 4 to a tent) with Cots, mats and sleeping bags provided. There is covered kitchen/dining area along with hot and cold showers and pit toilets ( towel and washcloth provided).


Rivers, lakes, forests, alpine meadows, old mine packhorse trails, and singletrack await your expedition. Sure-footed gentle mountain horses will carry you to the base camp where the guides set up and cook dinner around the campfire. Over the three days, you will get to know the horse that Copper Cayuse Outfitters has picked to match your abilities and learn to appreciate their nature.

Bright and early on the first day of the expedition, Copper Cayuse Outfitters will drive you to the trailhead from Copper Cayuse Outfitters' ranch in Pemberton where you’ll meet your horse and guides. The first day will find you riding 15 kilometers to Copper Cayuse Outfitters' base camp passing by a recent mine claim exploration. At the camp, you will then meet up with your luggage (maximum weight of 30 pounds).

The next day, you will ride to the Li-lik-hel mine where you can explore the original mine site and see how the old hard rock miners extracted gold ore by following the veins in the rock. From the base camp, you can also enjoy day rides to various locations of interest with each day ending with campfire evenings and comfortable tent lodgings.

Notes: Tours leave weekly at 09:00 on Tuesday or Friday (returning Sunday evening).
