What a wonderful place. The more I explore BC the more I love it - and Tyax is a gem. Beautiful lodge at the end of a 100km mostly dirt road in the amazing Chilcottin mountain range. The lodge is everything it should be. The rooms are a bit pricey but when you consider the location the price was reasonable. There is also the option of camping at the lodge - but remember it is bear country so keep food away from tent. The interior design of spa is amazing - very modern. The rest of the lodge is classic huge cedar logs. Best part of the lodge is the restaurant. Best meals I have had in a long time and the prices were very reasonable - actually prices were cheap for the quality and location. Staff in restaurant very very good. Take the float plane if you can even if it is just for a tour through the valleys. There is a crazy loon that tries to chase the float plane out of its territory! We took our bikes up to Warren Lake (6100') on the most beautiful day and biked for 9 hours through mountain lakes, alpine meadows in bloom, fantastic scenery, raging mountain streams - you get the idea. For experienced cyclists only. Gas up in Lilloet. The drive to Tyax is a lot of fun and very scenic. Watch for falling rock and wildlife on road. Best nachos ever.
