Meet Tofino Guide, the new must-have guidebook for West Coast visitors.
Succinct and entertaining, this guide explains the wonders of Tofino and the surrounding area, providing detailed, reliable and up-to-date information – with just the right touch of West Coast quirkiness. Visitors flock to this tiny community on Vancouver Island's West Coast, one of the most storied tourist destinations in Canada.
But what to do when they reach this far western edge of the country? Where to stay? To hike? What about surfing, oceanside retreats, and where to find great food? To make the most of a trip here, visitors need insider tips and seriously good advice – with a generous dash of fun.
Tofino Guide takes you to the heart of the West Coast, explaining everything from beaches to banana slugs, grey whales to gumboots, cedars to shellfish. The guide leads visitors along rainforest trails in the traditional territory of the local Nuu-chah-nulth people, out to storm-lashed Long Beach in the winter, and to the best viewpoints over Clayoquot Sound and the open Pacific Ocean.
The guide reveals the sights and sounds of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, with detailed suggestions about how to access the most heart-stoppingly beautiful beaches in the world, and how to explore the vast surrounding forest.
The Tofino Guide Top Ten Lists of activities and attractions include fun things to do with kids, famous trees, fabulous walks, and what to do in the rain (twenty suggestions, for that!). You can also learn what to do if you see a bear... or a cougar.... or a mysterious grey ghost in the forest, and you'll understand why kayakers sometimes go backwards out in the harbour, even when they're paddling forward!
Compiled by local resident John Platenius, Tofino Guide is an essential resource about Tofino and the Clayoquot Sound region.
