Take the floatplane back towards Vancouver, but this time pass over the bustling city and land on the immaculate waters of Clayoquot Sound, surrounded by untamed landscapes and your home for the next few days: Clayoquot Wilderness Resort
. Consistently topping the lists of the world's best glamping resorts, Clayoquot is an intimate and exclusive hideaway, with everything included, and with no televisions or phones in sight, it's guaranteed to get you unplugged and back to nature. Your decadent tent is bedecked in earthy yet luxurious finishes like wood stoves, antique furniture, classic books and plush beds.
Every evening, the activity directors will custom-make your activity schedule for the day ahead, depending on weather, animal sightings and your preferences. There's so much to choose from, whether you want to learn how to surf on a secluded beach, kayak along the river or on the sea to find hidden coves, or go fishing for dinner.
Otherwise, stay on terra firma and go on wildlife safaris to spot bears, birds, whales and more, and go ziplining, mountain biking and hiking with a First Nations guide. In-between exciting excursions, you'll be treated to delicious locally-sourced cuisine: seafood from the shores nearby, wine from Okanagan and meat from the farms of Fraser Valley. Share stories around the outdoor fireplace at cocktail hour and wind down in the outdoor hot tub - or even try watercolour painting in the lounge.
