On the doorstep of Tofino's spectacular wildlife, Wickaninnish Inn offers a luxurious base from which to discover the Pacific Rim's range of awe-inspiring landscapes and seascapes - easily explored across a variety of nature trails that set off from the Inn. Between May and October, encounter - alongside a trained expert - the striking Vancouver Island Black Bear as it comes out of hibernation, on a safe and breathtaking bear-watching tour. No Tofino experience is complete without taking to the open Pacific on a whale-watching tour; encounter sea lions, seals, sea otters and a variety of seabirds, alongside the stars of the show: striking Grey and Humpback whales.
Guaranteeing an unforgettable Canadian getaway for the entire family, Wickaninnish Inn offers a wonderful selection of amenities and activities for junior guests, through the WickKids programme. Your little ones will arrive to an exciting kids' basket and child-sized bathrobes in their room, as well as a range of beach toys, puzzles, board games and bicycles in the lodge. After a fun-filled afternoon on a scavenger hunt through the surrounding beach and forest, they can kick back in front of their favourite film with the Kids Night Inn in-room movie set up. Babysitting is also available upon request.
