 A guest room at Siwash Lake Ranch in Canada

Classic dude ranch meets high-end boutique resort at the family-owned Siwash, set among grasslands, old-growth forests, lakes and river canyons in the foothills of the Cariboo Mountains. Among the cowboy chic luxuries on offer are lavish canvas safari tents and the Sigh-wash Spa, a tented spa set among aspen groves. The big draws here are fly-fishing (you can learn the art of fly tying) and horseback riding. The ranch's Synergy with Horses program teaches hands-on horsemanship and encourages building bonds between horse and rider. Additional activities include canyon hikes to waterfalls, canoe trips across Siwash Lake and kids' horseback riding games. A dining room that serves organic ranch-grown produce and a commitment to the environment round out the many reasons this Canadian ranch wins our vote.
