Wilderness Adventures in British Columbia & Yukon
Nootka Island Guided Hike
“Vancouver Island West – One of the last places where a wild land still meets a wild ocean” Bertie Gregory, National Geographic wildlife filmmaker
Our Nootka Island guided hike is a remote coastal hike with unspoiled beaches, few, if any, hikers, a fabulous assortment of mammal, bird and marine wildlife, important historical significance, and has many outstanding scenic rewards.
Our Nootka Island guided hike begins with a short float plane flight from Gold River on Vancouver Island to a sheltered lake on Nootka Island. A short hike will bring us to the coast where we will begin six exciting days exploring the sandy beaches, caverns and caves, dramatic headlands, waterfalls, giant old growth forest and taste of First Nations history.
The beaches are fertile grounds for beachcombing for shells and Japanese glass floats.
Our Nootka Island guided hike concludes at Friendly Cove, where the Mowachaht chief Maquinna made the first contact with Europeans when Britain’s Capt. James Cook landed on Nootka in 1778. Captain James Cook spent a month refitting his ships and exploring the region in 1778.
The Nootka Island guided hike reveals its beauty around every corner: green sea anemones, banks of columbine, moss-carpeted rocks and beaches covered in red paintbrush. all against the backdrop of Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast.
