Day-by-Day Breakdown + Descriptions

Day 1:

Some of the most scenic and exciting days of your life wait, but first, dinner! After checking into your accommodation, join in at a private venue for dinner crafted by a local chef featuring local specialties and foraged finds.

Day 2:

Coming to Tofino just wouldn’t be the same without trying your hand at surfing. It is, after all, the surf capital of Canada. A 3hr group lesson with a skilled and certified instructor is the perfect way to get into it. If you can’t get enough, rent boards and suits for the rest of the day and perfect popping up. Otherwise there are plenty of easily accessed hikes, beaches to explore and quaint shops to visit in town.

Day 3:

Take to the skies for one of the most scenic flights around. Discover hidden coves, forming waves and stunning beaches on your way to one of nature’s greatest creations – Hot Springs Cove. Nestled into the rocks along the coast, the naturally heated, geothermic hot springs are the perfect way to loosen up those surfing muscles. A quick walk through the emerald forest finds you at your destination where you can relax to the sound of cascading falls and scenic views. Then, you’ll be feasting your eyes on that eagle-eye view of the coast for the return flight.

Day 4:

Bringing the sea-to-sky full loop, Day 4 brings with it another playful day on the ocean. Explore Meares Island during a 4hr hiking-kayaking blend where you’ll learn about the history of the area, take in the enormity of the island’s incredible trees and learn about the local marine life as you paddle on by in your kayak. Afterwards head out in a covered vessel or zodiac on a 2.5/2hr whale or bear-watching excursion. By the time that’s done, you’ll have truly seen and done it all.

Day 5:

After a few jam-packed days, it’s time to bid goodbye to Tofino.
