Discover Wildlife and Hot Springs in Ucluelet and Tofino
Spend a day getting acquainted with two island communities beloved for their pristine beaches, charming shops, and surf culture. Ucluelet is a local First Nations word meaning "safe harbor" and completely fitting for this quaint coastal town. Take a stroll along the easily accessible Wild Pacific Trail, which offers incredible views of the Pacific Ocean—hello, perfect picnic spot! After your own exploring, our Canada by Design travel experts can pre-arrange a unique hot springs adventure from nearby surf town, Tofino. The excursion combines whale watching with a rainforest hike along a boardwalk and leads you to a series of natural thermal hot pools. Unwind here with a soak in the pools after your hike. Just be sure to have your cameras ready for the scenic journey from Tofino back to Vancouver.
