TofinoIt is difficult to find the words to describe the beauty of Tofino, a small somewhat remote fishing village situated on the west coast of Vancouver Island at the northernmost part of The Pacific Rim National Park. It is renowned for it’s beauty, magnificent beaches and small islands in the ocean - that are mostly accessible Tofinoat low tide. During the winter ‘storm watching’ is a popular past time – most hotels have access to heavy duty rain gear. Tofino is about 5 hours by road from Victoria, but our flights can get you there as quickly as 45 minutes. We fly you over the West Coast Trail, and Pacific Rim National Park approaching the airport from along the edge of Long Beach, the surfing centre of British Columbia. When the surf is up Long Beach is busy, but with a beach of it’s size - it is never crowded. Tofino has the picturesque look of a west coast fishing village, where fish restaurants, galleries, docks, and boats abound – and fish and chips the favourite meal! To the north of Tofino is the incredibly beautiful and peaceful TofinoClayoquot Sound populated by whales. Whale watching, beach walks, and fishing form the basis of activities but other diversions such as hiking in ancient forests, kayaking, birding, canoeing, or a day trip to Hot Springs Cove. Rent a bike or a scooter to see all that the village, and its divine surroundings have to offer, before you tuck into aTofino fresh crab sandwich or a salmon steak lunch on the dock. With a wide range of accommodation from deluxe on the beach, to comfortable and handy in the village, you are bound to find what you need, and in your budget range. The interpretive centre on the eastern end of Long Beach is a must to be visited on your way to, or from Tofino, lately refurbished at a cost in excess of $3,000,000 and renamed the Kwistis Visitors Centre. The Pacific Rim National park hosts over 800,000 visitors a year which, when its remoteness is considered, is a testament to its beauty and appeal.
