Canoeing or Float Tubing Keno Lake:
Keno Lake is a small and secluded lake approximately 10 km away from Elysia Resort. It is safe for canoeing or float tubing and is abundant with wildlife, fish and beautiful scenery. Part of the lake is marshy, supporting numerous varieties of birds. Well off the beaten path, you can expect to be the only one on the lake, true solitude and wilderness.

Eco Float:
Float along the Horsefly River in a single-person Pontoon Boat, or a four-person drift boat, and see the splendor of the river scenery. In the autumn the colors will take your breath away, the Sockeye Salmon will be spawning, and you will likely see trout lurking in the shadows. No matter the season, floating the river promises many opportunities to see wildlife, birds and spectacular flora. You will return more relaxed than you can ever remember feeling.

Nature & Adventure Experiences by Boat:
Shore LunchLet one of our fully qualified and experienced guides take you wildlife viewing by boat. Learn about the little known pristine wilderness that the Quesnel Lake Watershed has to offer. Visit a majestic waterfall. Walk in ancient cedar rainforests. Walk along miles and miles of sandy beaches. On the way, depending on the season, we can see mountain goats, bears, moose, deer, river otter, eagles and many types of water birds. We can stop for a picnic lunch, beach comb and maybe catch a trout for your dinner. Besides enjoying great food, in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere, you will learn local native history, folklore, and natural interpretation, photograph spectacular scenery and wildlife, and enjoy opportunities to catch the famous Quesnel Lake trophy size rainbow.

Fly-out Fishing or Flight-Seeing Trips via Float Plane:
Trips to places such as Mitchell Lake and Niagara River, accessible only by floatplane, in the Cariboo Mountains Park, provide a unique wilderness experience.

The scenery and wildlife viewing in this area is unsurpassed. It is a trip of a lifetime and something that you won't soon forget.

Driving Tour of Historic Horsefly Area or Quesnel Forks:
Quesnel ForksThe town of Horsefly, 42 km from us, has many amenities such as a grocery store and gas station, plus an art gallery, museum, pub and cafe. This tour includes a visit to the local art gallery and museum. You can also enjoy an easy hike to Moffat Falls. And, if visiting us in the fall, a visit to the Sockeye Salmon Spawning Channels is a breathtaking must. The Horsefly area is rich in Gold Rush History. It is well worth spending some time here.

Or, Quesnel Forks is an old ghost town that was fast and furious in the Gold Rush days. The road to Quesnel Forks almost guarantees you will see a moose cross the road. And, you can stop and see the Chinese ovens along the way. Located on the Quesnel River, Quesnel Forks quietly stands today much as it did back in the mid 1800s.
