About this Adventure...

Located in the Pacific Rim National Park on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, the West Coast Trail is known as one of the top five hikes in the world! An ancient trail with a rich history of First Nations trade and travel, the West Coast Trail became a life-saving rescue route for shipwrecks in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Today the trail is known as a challenging lifetime experience, hiking through the temperate rainforests and rugged coastlines of the Pacific Rim. Hike under a canopy of ancient Cedars, and along First Nations trade routes. Pass remnants of shipwrecks which earned the coastline its’ name “The Graveyard of the Pacific”, and soak in the majestic beauty of the wilderness of the West Coast of Vancouver Island.
