or Float Tubing Keno Lake:
Keno Lake is a small and secluded lake approximately
10 km away from Elysia Resort. It is safe for canoeing
or float tubing and is abundant with wildlife, fish
and beautiful scenery. Part of the lake is marshy,
supporting numerous varieties of birds. Well off the
beaten path, you can expect to be the only one on
the lake, true solitude and wilderness.

Pontoon Boat, or a four-person drift boat, and see
the splendor of the river scenery. In the autumn the
colors will take your breath away, the Sockeye Salmon
will be spawning, and you will likely see trout lurking
in the shadows. No matter the season, floating the
river promises many opportunities to see wildlife,
birds and spectacular flora. You will return more
relaxed than you can ever remember feeling.

Tour of Historic Horsefly Area or Quesnel Forks:
town of Horsefly, 42 km from us, has many amenities
such as a grocery store and gas station, plus an art
gallery, museum, pub and cafe. This tour includes
a visit to the local art gallery and museum. You can
also enjoy an easy hike to Moffat Falls. And, if visiting
us in the fall, a visit to the Sockeye Salmon Spawning
Channels is a breathtaking must. The Horsefly area
is rich in Gold Rush History. It is well worth spending
some time here.
Quesnel Forks is an old ghost town that was fast and
furious in the Gold Rush days. The road to Quesnel
Forks almost guarantees you will see a moose cross
the road. And, you can stop and see the Chinese ovens
along the way. Located on the Quesnel River, Quesnel
Forks quietly stands today much as it did back in
the mid 1800s.
