Whiteswan Lake Outfitters

Every year, more than 5,000 big game hunters from all around the world visit the beautiful British Columbia in pursuit of great hunting adventures. Whiteswan Lake Outfitters has been a part of many successful guided hunts.


Whiteswan Lake Outfitters is owned by Darryl & Joyce Sword and Tim & Carolyn Ruby. "We hope your hunting experience at Whiteswan Lake Outfitters is not only successful, but that your story here will be passed down to share with your future generations." 


Whiteswan Lake is located in South eastern British Columbia in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, just south of Kootenay and Banff National Park. Hunts are designed with each individual hunter in mind, and by all means - foot, vehicle and horse. The better your condition, the more you will be able to achieve. Client hunt with a guide in some of the most beautiful country in British Columbia, with the hunting area covering over 8,000 square kilometres and boasting some of the best Big Game - Mountain Goat, Grizzly, Bighorn Sheep, Elk, Mule Deer, Moose and Black Bear hunting in British Columbia. Black Bear range in colour from pure black to brown or cinnamon in colour. Cougar hunts are also available in December & January.


Hunts are run from a main hunting lodge and many out camps. Arriving at the main lodge is a real delight - the road opens up to reveal the rustic, wooden house and its four out cabins nestled in the valley beside the Kootenay River. The lodge is family owned and built and the love of the wilderness and the outdoor lifestyle is obvious in the detail.

Each of the four cabins are located away from the main lodge for the privacy of each group. Each cabin has comfortable single beds, and one has a double bed for couples if preferred. Dining is a family affair at a large table and is both welcoming and extremely well catered. The food at this lodge is marvellous and will please even the most fussy eater.

The views from the main lodge look out from a huge wall of glass to the mountains and woods that surround it.
