Untouched Beauty
Bedwell Sound, the home of the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, is located not far from Tofino, a favorite destination of surfers and storm watchers on Vancouver Island's west coast. It is part of the Clayoquot Sound region, designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Area in 1999. One of the largest tracts of coastal temperate rainforests in the world, it has cedars that are more than 1,000 years old and waters teeming with wild salmon.

Roughin' It at Clayoquot
Clayoquot elevates "glamping," that is glamorous camping, to a whole new level. The accommodations are in luxury prospector style tents built on raised wooden walkways. Each is furnished with antique dressers, Adirondack style beds, comfy duvets, gorgeous rugs.

Saddle Up
Clayoquot has a long list of activities for guests—whale and bear watching, fishing, hiking (including heli-hiking), mountain biking, and excursions on horseback. The resort has 30 endurance and draft horses available for guided rides through the resort and beyond to an abandoned gold mining town or old-growth cedar forests. To arrange a 3-, 4-, or 7-day visit to Clayoquot contact me at katie.cadar@afar.com. Photo by Katie Cadar

Gourmet Grub
Fitting with Clayoquot's tents furnished with antiques, you won't have to survive on franks and beans when you go glamping here. Chef Ryan Orr's dishes features the best of British Columbia—including locally raised meats and seafood from the Pacific. The Okanagan Valley provides wine and produce, at its peak when Clayoquot is open (from May to the end of September). The Cook House includes an open kitchen so you can watch, and learn, from Orr and his team. There are also more private dining options, like the tent seen here. For a British Columbia itinerary tailored to your interests, contact me at katie.cadar@afar.com. Photo by Katie Cadar

Kids Welcome
Clayoquot is decidedly family friendly. If you want to go when the youngest travelers in your family are most likely to meet other guests their age, head there in July and August. If, on the other hand, you'd rather go to Clayoquot for a quiet escape without all the activity of peak family season, reserve a room (er, tent) in May or September. Whenever you choose to go to Clayoquot, we can help with all the arrangements. Contact me at katie.cadar@afar.com. Photo by Katie Cadar

A Canadian Safari
It's easy to pass your days rock climbing, going to yoga classes, getting a spa treatment or simply sitting by a campfire, but at some point during your visit to Clayoquot, you should definitely go on one of the resort's wilderness safaris aboard a Zodiac. You'll have the chance to spot whales, bears, eagles and wolves—all from the safety of the boat. The opportunity to listen to whale song through a microphone dropped from the Zodiac alone justifies all the effort to reach Clayoquot. To assure your journey there is trouble free, contact me at katie.cadar@afar.com. Photo by Katie Cadar
