At the end of the road, in the heart of Clayoquot Sound lies the village of Tofino. The community is surrounded on three sides by water (Pacific Ocean and Clayoquot Sound) and rain forest on the other, Tofino is home to just 1,500 residents but a very popular destination for visitors to Vancouver Island.
Tofino is known as Canada’s surfing capital and the surfing on the nearby beaches, including Long Beach, is excellent. Outdoor activities and unique experiences are what bring people to Tofino all year long. There is kayaking, whale watching, wilderness adventures, wildlife watching, hiking, fishing and winter storm watching. Many come to simply relax and get away from it all.
Drive the Pacific Rim Highway from Port Alberni on Vancouver Island through the national park reseve's rainforest, past windswept beaches and discover the abundance of wildlife on the land and the ocean in this memorable roadtrip.
