We know there are thousands of reasons that make Tsylos special to us and each guest that visits us, but to make it easy, we've narrowed it down to the top 10 reasons you should make Tsylos your next vacation. Here they are:
1. The Chilko Waters.
Chilko Lake is surrounded by magnificent mountain peaks, pristine forests, ice fields, and is fed by dozens of glacial creeks, giving it her gorgeous colour. This is considered to be by many, the most beautiful lake in the world...after seeing her, you will not disagree. Learn more about Chilko Lake and River.
2. The Majestic Mountains.
It has taken Mother Nature millions of years to carve out the jagged peaks of the Coast Mountains; creating hidden valleys to explore, waterfalls and roaring creeks and sweet mountain springs to drink. Tsylos is smack in the middle of this beauty. Learn more about the Chilko Mountains.
3. The Wilderness Adventure.
Our guests come from all around the world, but they all have a few things in common: a love of the outdoors, a sense of adventure, and a specific passion for fly fishing, horseback riding, photography, or just nature in general. See our vacation adventures...
4. Our Rustic Lodge.
We accommodate 16 guests at the lodge in our 9 individual rooms, 8 of which are located in 4 of our log cabins, all with private bathrooms. All of our log buildings have been constructed with local timber. All of our guided adventure trips are based at the lodge or from the lodge. Learn more about the Tsylos Lodge.
