OVERVIEW


Enjoy a scenic boat ride through world renowned Clayoquot Sound and hike the Wildside Trail on Flores Island. The local Ahousaht First Nation have used this route for thousands of years to reach the outer beaches on the west side of the island and this vital circuit is now accessible to visitors. A mix of boardwalks, forest trails and sandy beaches (8 in total!) this trail is one of our favourite coastal day hikes and a must-do for those wanting a more remote and adventurous experience.

HIGHLIGHTS


Private Guided Boat Charter

Cruise through Clayoquot Sound on route to Flores Island north of the village of Tofino on your own private guided boat charter. We will keep our eye out for sea otters, whales and other marine life before we get dropped off on a remote section of Flores Island Provincial Park to begin our hike.

Natural and Cultural History

Your private interpretive guide will teach you about the local ecosystems including the plants and animals of this coastal rainforest, intertidal and marine life. We will also explore the rich history of the region, from the fur-trade to whaling and everything in between.

Rewarding Remote Coastal Hike

This moderate hike in Flores Island Provincial Park leads through sandy beaches, rain forest trails and finishes in the remote community of Ahousaht. We highly recommend this hike for first time visitors who want to make the most of their trip to Tofino and want a more off-the-beaten-path experience.
