Cape Scott Guided Hike
Wilderness Adventures in British Columbia & Yukon since 1988

British Columbia

A Family Reflection – By Sean, Grandson of Phyllis Hill (Williams) of Cape Scott.
“Many have written about their experience up there, but I doubt many have can have an experience like mine as I have roots in Cape Scott. My great grandparents and my grandmother (who’s now since departed) were settlers there, from 1913 – 1919 –  so for me to go back is more than just a backcountry experience; it’s a look at my own family’s history… my ancestry.” (Full story provided with our package)

CapeCape Scott Prologue — Getting There | by Keenan Ngo | Adventure Arc | Medium Scott Provincial Park is at the very northern tip of Vancouver Island. It’s a remote but beautiful place: old-growth rainforest, coastal bog, gorgeous white sand beaches, and lots of historical sites.

“Wow! I don’t remember the last time a hike won me over. Cape Scott has been on my to-do list for years. Between the gorgeous sandy beaches, old-growth forests, peat bogs, and human history, this trip was an absolute pleasure.
