The small town of Tofino lies at the centre of Clayoquot Sound on Vancouver Island’s Pacific coast, poised between the crashing surf of Pacific rollers and towering rainforests inland. Tofino was also recently designated British Columbia’s first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the surrounding Pacific Rim National Park is a naturalist’s paradise.
Wildlife is bountiful in this serene community of Vancouver Island; the annual Pacific Rim Whale Festival takes place in March and for the two months that follow nearly 20,000 grey whales pass within five kilometres of the shore on their migration north from Mexico. Then there are Black Bears that forage along the shoreline in giant cedar and ancient Sitka spruce rainforests while eagles swoop overhead.
Tofino is also a hikers paradise offering stunning beaches, temperate rainforests, wildlife viewing and storm watching just to name a few of the fantastic, awe-inspiring experiences when hiking the trails in Tofino and Ucluelet
