Echo Valley Ranch & Spa, Jesmond

Discover the lifestyle of a typical Canadian western cowboy, riding through the cattle fields of a working ranch – with a curiously oriental twist.

Trotting on a trusty horse through Echo Valley Ranch you find yourself surrounded by the mighty British Columbian countryside – ‘the great outdoors’ is too small a phrase to describe it. When you actually arrive at the Echo Valley ranch house, the traditional Canadian clapboard backwoodsman house has taken on a style that is borrowed from Thailand; with open terraces, high pointed roofs, sunburst gable decoration and typically Thai motifs.

So, as part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Canada, Echo Valley Ranch and Spa can offer you a combination of experiences. A range of real Canadian outdoor adventures plus the utter indulgence of a Thai-style spa.

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
