August 20

Tofino and Ucluelet are two gems secluded on the West Coast of Vancouver Island in the province of British Columbia, Canada. At Tofino's doorstep is the Clayoquot Sound region, a world UNESCO biosphere reserve. This area boasts one of British Columbia's most prized nature reserves, Pacific Rim National Park. Tofino offers the best way to experience BC's pristine wilderness first hand.

No snakes - but strange looking seaweeds
Over the winter months, storm watching is popular. One of the main attractions is the Pacific Rim National Park (PRNPR) which is composed of three geographically separate units. The Long Beach Unit is located between the villages of Ucluelet and Tofino, and named after the 16km (10miles) sandy Beach of Wickaninnish Bay. The Broken Group Islands Unit is an archipelago of more than one hundred islands and rocks scattered throughout Barkley Sound and is accesible by boat only. The West Coast Trail Unit is a 75km (47 mile) backpacking route along temperate rain-forest, sandstone cliffs, waterfalls, caves, sea arches, sea stacks and beaches. More infos at
