TOFINO B.C, VANCOUVER ISLAND IS THE PARADISE OF WESTERN CANADA AND THE WORLD

Have you ever been to Paradise.

1

Tofino, BC, is the Paradise of Western Canada.
Where else can you experience temperate rainforests,
abundant wildlife, long clean sandy beaches, beautiful
surf and amazing people?

Tofino, BC, is like nowhere else in the world,
quite literally.
As there is less than 3% of the world’s temperate
rainforest left in the world, just that makes Tofino one
of the most rare places in the world.

Couple that with the fact the city is at the end of a
peninsula containing the world-famous Pacific Rim
National Park and is in the Kennedy and Clayoquot
watersheds, considered some of the most pristine
wilderness in the world and designated a UNESCO
Biosphere Reserve.

When you arrive in this Pacific playground you will
quickly see why it is truly a world-class vacation destination.

Beauty abounds at every turn; clean, uncrowded beaches
at the end of every street.

With a thriving eco-tourism economy, Tofino, BC, is the
place for adventure

But wait, there is more.
Perhaps you don’t want to hike the rainforest trail,
witness eagles swooping for salmon while you’r
e hiking up Mears Mountain on Mears island.

Or perhaps renting sea kayaks and paddling to
the Broken Island group to camp in total isolation is
what interests you.

Maybe you’ve always wanted to try surfing?

You can find some of the best waves in the world on
the west coast of Vancouver Island!

Maybe you just want to sit in the hot tub on the deck
of your vacation accommodations and watch the waves
roll in.

Did you perhaps come for one of the amazing spas and
resorts, or perhaps you would just like to do some fishing?

Whatever fits your interest, Tofino BC is right there
with you in all its beauty.

To travel by car to Tofino, you have a scenic four- to
five-hour drive from Victoria North to Highway 4 in
Parksville, and then west, across the island to arrive
in Tofino and Ucluelet.

As this area is so close to the natural ways of the past,
there was no road until the 1960s and no paved access
suntil the 1980s.

Though fishermen have called the picturesque seaside
town of Tofino home since the Spanish landed on its
coast in 1792, Tofino’s rich history dates much farther
back, when the First Nation’s band the Nuu-chah-nulth
Indians habited the area for thousands of years.

Now the traditional inhabitants of the area remain a
strong presence by showing and sharing their arts,
crafts, artifacts and culture.

The town of Tofino, BC, has many spectacular galleries
including that of Roy Henry Vickers, one of the most
famous Native artists from the area.

Tofino and Ucluelet are two gems secluded on the
West Coast of Vancouver Island in the province
of British Columbia, Canada.

At Tofino’s doorstep is the Clayoquot Sound region,
a world UNESCO biosphere reserve.

This area boasts one of British Columbia’s most
prized nature reserves, Pacific Rim National Park.

Tofino offers the best way to experience BC’s pristine
wilderness first hand.

Over the winter months, storm watching is popular.

You will find competitive rates on accommodation
during these quieter months.

We recommend you reserve accommodations well
in advance of Tofino’s busy summer months.

Planning ahead will ensure you find the cabin, condo,
vacation rental, or resort suitable to your needs.

Tofino offers a variety of outdoor activities for visitors.
Whale watching, hiking, surfing, hot springs excursions
and beach combing are just a few popular activities
at Tofino’s doorstep.
Enjoy your next vacation in spectacular Tofino,
British Columbia, Canada

The Wickaninnish Inn could be reasonably be described
as a lodge at the edge of the world.

Backed by rippling ridges and old-growth evergreens,
the 75-room chalet is perched on a promontory
overlooking the ocean.

In the winter, well-heeled visitors gather behind sturdy
windows and are warmed by a crackling fire as they
watch ferocious storms batter the coastline.

It sounds like one would have to travel to New Zealand
or Patagonia in order to observe such a spectacle.
