Chesterman Beach, Tofino, BC


The Wild Pacific Trail carves through old-growth thickets of twisted trunks, roots, ferns and moss of the temperate coastal rainforest as it hugs the wild coastline of the Ucluth Peninsula. Watch the fury of the open Pacific Ocean with spectacular views of the rocky shoreline, Barkley Sound, and the Broken Group Islands from this easy to navigate trail.

West Coast Trail, BC


Brady’s Beach is located a short hike from West Bamfield, the town of Bamfield is one of those wondrous places that the Pacific Northwest seems to have in abundance. It’s like a community right out of a storybook. The beach is a short distance over the peninsula where West Bamfield is located. Bamfield has no paved road leading to it, you must travel to Port Alberni and then head west on a rough logging road for 90 km. www.gohiking.ca

Lupin Falls, Strathcona Park, BC

Strathcona Provincial Park, designated in 1911, is the oldest provincial park in British Columbia. Located almost in the centre of Vancouver Island, Strathcona park is a rugged mountain wilderness comprising more than 250,000 hectares. Mountain peaks – some perpetually mantled with snow – dominate the park. Lakes and alpine tarns dot a landscape laced with rivers, creeks and streams. Summer in Strathcona is usually pleasantly warm.
