About the neighbourhood
The Cariboo area of British Columbia offers abundant natural beauty and wildlife, a rich Gold Rush history, and that authentic Wild West feel. Horsefly Lake is a pristine glacial lake for endless canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, swimming and fishing. Dive in for your morning swim from the dock, fish for breakfast casting off the dock, launch your kayak from the dock, bring you boat and tie off at the private dock, soak up the sun lounging on the dock... Choices, choices... There are 5 waterfalls to explore in the Horsefly area. Some require a bit of a hike, others are close to the road. Generally, your hike in the area is always rewarded with a gorgeous view of the lake. The area is quiet but populated.
Getting around
Due to the distances in rural Cariboo areas, a vehicle is a must. There are fantastic back roads to explore, for example the back road to Barkerville for a visit at this living Gold Rush museum. Drive around at dusk or dawn and you're basically guaranteed to see wildlife with moose, deer, elk, bear, fox, hare, eagles, owls, and other nature friends waiting for you.
