Inspired by late 19th-century camps, the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort on the west coast of Vancouver Island in Canada is a dreamlike destination that combines a rustic back-to-nature experience with extreme luxury. Without a blow up mattress, sleeping bag or unsightly facility block in sight the Resort is the epitome of wilderness spruced up...
The camp’s 20 white-canvas tents are unlike any tent you’ve stayed in before. They have polished wooden floors, mood lighting, lovely en-suites, wood-burning stoves and spectacular viewing decks looking straight out onto the amazing 100 year old cedar rainforest.
Yummy modern and natural cuisine is served in the cookhouse, an atmospheric log cabin with a vast fireplace and a long bar - perfect for winding down after a day of activities, or a day of doing nothing much at all.
The camp is completely family friendly with plenty of adventure-fuelled activities for you and the kids. Highlights include horseback riding in old growth temperate rainforest, river valley and mountain hikes, abseiling, river and ocean kayaking, black bear viewing, whale watching, deep sea and fresh water fishing, zip line, clay shooting and archery.
But if that all sounds too exhausting, there is a beautiful spa surrounded by rainforest at the mouth of the Bedwell River…custom built for total relaxation. And with two magnificent arrival options, either flying in with the eagles by seaplane, or arriving by boat with the wild salmon the whole visit is guaranteed to be unforgettable, from beginning to end.
The Clayoquot Wilderness Resort is open May through September annually offering 3, 4 and 7 night all inclusive adventures. This is definitely one we’d love to check out some time soon.
