Tmapwcthe West Coast Trail was voted Canada’s best hiking trail & one of the 50 best hikes in North America.” Explore Magazine

Vancouver Island West – one of the last places where a wild land still meets a wild ocean”  Bertie Gregory, National Geographic wildlife filmmaker

Our  West Coast Trail guided hike along Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast, originated as a lifesaving trail to assist shipwrecked mariners to safety at the turn of the last century. This stretch of coast became known as the “Graveyard of the Pacific” for the many shipping disasters that occurred during fierce coastal storms in the 1800s and early 1900s.

Today, the 75 km (47 miles) of rain forest, beaches, sandstone cliffs, rugged headlands, rivers, light stations, shipwreck relics, fashion one of the world’s great wilderness hikes. Hikers come from around the world to be challenged and awed by the coastal scenery along the West Coast Trail.

The West Coast Trail guided hike requires hikers to be prepared both mentally and physically. Possible periods of rain, muddy and slippery conditions, negotiating tree roots, climbing ladders, carrying heavy packs, will all add to the challenge of completing the trail. Hikers should also weigh the fact that the West Coast Trail has more injury evacuations than any other national park.
