Tyax Lodge Water Activities

Summer Activities

Get Outdoors at Tyax!

Whether you are looking to do whole lot, or a whole lot of nothing, you will love Tyax. Hike, bike, swim in the lake, or paddle out to explore the lake shore.

Mountain bike rentals are not available in our immediate area so please be sure to come prepared with your own equipment so that you can explore the beautiful trail systems the South Chilcotin Mountains have to offer! Our lodge sells spare bike parts.

Summer Activities

Lodge Based Activities

Kayaks, Canoes, Paddle Boards

Enjoy a peaceful early morning paddle across a glassy Tyaughton Lake witnessing nature in full abundance. There’s a good chance you’ll hear the majestic loon’s call, catch beavers hard at work, and maybe you’ll be lucky to spot a bear, deer or moose coming down for a drink. But also remember to look up. The ever-popular bald eagle often observes the waters, dipping down for a catch when opportunities strike.

Lawn Games

Connect with your loved ones over a game and have a laugh. We offer lawn games such as badminton, bocce ball, volleyball, croquet, ladder ball and frisbee. 

The Interpretive Trail

Take a forest bathing journey. Wonder our interpretive trail engaging all of your senses. Smell and take in the fresh air, feel the ground beneath each step, listen for different bird calls, and read informative signs about the flora and fauna surrounding our area.


“Tyaughton” meaning “jumping fish”, the beautiful Tyaughton Lake lives up to its name. You can spot fish jumping in the fresh early hours of the day and during the calm waters at dusk. Grab a complimentary fishing rod and paddle out in one of our watercrafts to find the best spots to fish, or simply fish from our dock. Make sure that you have your provincial freshwater Fishing License.

Explore local roads and trails by fat-tire bike, ideally suited to ride over large rocks, loose gravel and dirt.

2 and 5 hour rentals are available on a first come first served basis, no pre-bookings are available. Adult-size rentals only.

Extra fees apply.
