An idyllic lakeside wedding venue

A World all your Own
Only a 6-hour drive from the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver and 4.5 hours from Kamloops, guests can leave the city behind and experience the incredible beauty of true Canadian wilderness. Tyax Lodge is truly one of the most scenic wedding venues in British Columbia.
Escape the city without leaving any of its comforts behind. At Tyax, there’s something for every guest, from children to grandparents. All guests of the lodge can enjoy full use of our complimentary watercraft and spa services (perfect for a relaxing afternoon for the bridal party). If you need more inspiration, look no further than our summer activities page.
