We just came back from a week at Clayoquot. We loved absolutely every minute of this exceptional vacation: - Activities: from wild life watching to mountain biking, horse riding, deep-sea fishing, hiking to the suspended bridge or the gold mine, climbing, zip-lining, water-skiing, kayaking or simply enjoying the view in the hot tub, there are plenty to chose from. Activities...

Just back from a stay at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort and it was an experience that I will never forget, for all good reasons. The activities are very varied and there is something for everyone.

This is our second visit to Clayoquot. We had an even better (but without the unique "first-time" feeling) experience than two years ago. The staff is amazing, the location breathtaking and the food glorious. We did a helicopter drop off on top of a nearby mountain, had a picnic next to a beautiful lake and hiked for a while before...

Certainly not exceptional. Whilst one cannot fault the vistas, scenery, wildlife and overall service, there are some shortfalls which I feel are worth pointing out. This is not your average resort and naturally, as a result, is extremely expensive. However, given the price tag, we felt that the cost left us feeling a little disappointed with the overall experience. It...

I would highly recommend this resort for an active family. You arrive by seaplane onto this beautiful campsite in the middle of nowhere. The tents are simply beautiful with everything you could need...bathrooms, showers, heated floors. The restaurant is delicious. And all the activities are tailored to your family's needs, ages, etc. Also, a unique and amaxing feature is you...
