  • There's a reason Vancouver Island's rugged West Coast Trail is renowned as one of the world's very best hikes. An undeniable physical challenge matched by stunning Pacific coastal wilderness, and an adventure that delivers plenty of highlights: gaze at luminous marine life in mirror-clear tidal pools; swim beneath invigorating cascades; encounter an outdoor adult playground with intimidating creek ladders, suspension bridges and self-powered cable cars; cook beneath the stars over driftwood campfires, and pitch tents in truly gorgeous locations. Our route traces the Graveyard of the Pacific, where dozens of ships have been wrecked. You'll encounter their relics too, along with abandoned indigenous settlements, fishing communities, and picturesque lighthouses. Spot wolf prints or breaching whales as you cross vast sandy beaches, under the gaze of bald eagles soaring overhead. Discover massive old-growth forest, the character of each campsite, and your physical prowess as you complete this trail of a lifetime.
