WEATHER ON THE WEST COAST

Due to our location on the western coast of Vancouver Island, we are facing the open North Pacific Ocean and our weather patterns therefore are controlled by the sea. Our climate is mild with winter temperatures averaging 8-10 degrees celsius and summer temperatures averaging 12-20 degrees celsius. We recommend being prepared for a range of conditions. Mountain weather can change dramatically and access to these regions will depend on the current weather.

Meares Island

The beautiful views from the summit of Lone Cone have made the mountain a renowned destination. This is a must do when visiting Tofino if you’re looking for an adventure.

Expert Local Guides

Our guides are all expert naturalists, interpreters, and trained in risk management and advanced wilderness first aid. They will provide you with guidance, education, safety and camaraderie. With extensive local knowledge of the region, weather and wildlife going on a guided trekking tour can be a rewarding experience.
