Vancouver Island Back to Canada


Courtesy Clayoquot Wilderness Resort

Vancouver Island is rich enough as a region to entertain you for a week, but also makes a superb destination as a long weekend. Its beaches and rainforest trails are great for kids, while its sheer remoteness makes it unbelievably romantic. The region boasts a wealth of wildlife as well as pine tree forests, mountain ranges, and crystal-clear lakes, which can be observed and experienced from the comfort of two refined wilderness lodges, one of which is located on Vancouver Island, while the other is located just off the coast.

Cheat Sheet

Lay of the Land

Off the coast of Canada, British Columbia’s Vancouver Island is a ruggedly beautiful and secluded spot from which to immerse oneself in nature without leaving behind luxury. Two properties offer comfortable and upscale accommodations in the midst of the wilderness. Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge, located on the southwestern shore of the island, anchors the Pacific Ocean and Bedwell Sound and is a fantastic spot to explore the biodiversity of both land and sea. Two hours north towards the top of the island is Nimmo Bay Resort, where heli-fishing, wilderness tours and kayaking can be part of every day’s schedule.

When to Go

Vancouver Island’s weather is mild year-round, but the best time to visit is May through September. Winter months bring storms rolling in off the Pacific and steady rains. This can work if you relish the idea of getting cozy beside a blazing fire—but if you’d rather to get out and explore, it’s best to go spring through fall.
