Wilderness Cabin

Elysia Resort, in the heart of the Cariboo Mountains, is situated on Quesnel Lake, the deepest glacially formed lake on earth. With countless streams and rivers within the Quesnel River Watershed Ecosystem, Quesnel Lake is truly one of the gems of the Cariboo Region.

The possibilities of wilderness excursions in this area are endless. We can customize a guided trip just for you, or you can do it yourself, the choice is yours. Below are just a few tantalizing samples of eco-wilderness adventures you might enjoy.

WaterfallsA sampling of wilderness trip ideas…

  • Drift the heritage Horsefly River while fly fishing for monster 'bows.
  • Jet Boat up the Mitchell River while viewing spawning Sockeye Salmon and Grizzlies.
  • Go boating up the East Arm of Quesnel Lake to our very own 200 foot Niagara Falls. A stop at Lynx Creek cliffs is a must – keep your eye out for mountain goats.
  • Boat up the North Arm and hike in ancient Cedar Rain Forests, or just beach comb the miles of shoreline.
  • Explore Cariboo Island, then continue boating to the town of Likely at the end of the West Arm.
  • Arrange a fly-out to one of our nearby emerald lakes in the secluded Cariboo Mountains.
  • Drive to one of our nearby small lakes and fish from a pontoon boat.
  • Via Horsefly, you can drive to Horsefly Falls, or, take the ‘Ditch Road’ which follows the Horsefly River and Quesnel Lake to the town of Likely. You can circle tour back to Horsefly via the Beaver Valley Road.
  • Wildlife viewing from the water - moose, bears, goats, beavers, eagles, etc.
  • Explore the miles and miles of sandy beaches and maybe even pan for some gold.
