A nature lover's
nirvana

Round up the troops for a trip into the heart of Canada’s wilderness; where glimpsing a black bear on the treeline, swimming under waterfalls, and a nature cruise up the sound are just the tip of the iceberg.

Vancouver’s hubbub kicks off the adventures in your own time. Take it slow or head out into the city on a morning tour of Granville Island Market, before the option to tour Capilano Park or board the Skyride to the top of Grouse Mountain. Then before you know it, a seaplane and a horse drawn carriage later, and you’re on the doorstep of Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge.

Outdoorsy households have it best here, with canyoning, kayaking, hiking and climbing on the roster; while the naturephiles are found spotting aquatic and land-dwelling wildlife from custom made boats or on horseback. But it’s not all high-octane activities. Time slows down a bit when savouring dinner in The Cookhouse to the views across Clayoquot Sound, or over the kids’ new favourite snack – s’mores – around a campfire under the stars.
