Come explore Tofino, Ucluelet and the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.
This is the real west coast, spectacularly situated on the Pacific side of Vancouver Island. Discover all you can do, see and learn in this wild place of jaw-dropping beauty. From the Alberni Valley to Ucluelet, through Pacific Rim National Park to Tofino, experience an epic, natural postcard around every curve of Canada’s Surf Highway (Highway #4).
Tofino: a feast for your senses. Stroll vast, sandy beaches where Tofino got its reputation as Canada’s Surf Capital. Relax on the calm waters of Clayoquot Sound — the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve home to abundant wildlife. Taste “boat to table” cuisine at award-winning, eclectic eateries. Meet artisans creating made-in-Tofino treasures for locally owned shops and galleries.
Feel a part of Tofino’s unforgettably rich ecosystem — inspiration for the Nuu-chah-nulth phrase Hishuk Ish Tsawalk: “Everything is one — all is interconnected.” Leave refreshed, and come back again and again.
