We had this place on our travel list for a long time but were put off by the price, even though we are fairly extravagant travelers. We finally gave in to our intense curiosity one month ago and were pleased that we did. The location is as beautiful as you might expect given that you must arrive by seaplane because... More

From beginning to end, our trip to Clayoquot Wilderness Resort was amazing! Food: wonderful. No complaints, breakfast , lunch and the five course meal every night with wine pairing;... More

Clayoquot is a remarkable place. Ryan and his team cook wonderful food (the lunch time fish tacos were especially brilliant) and watching the Shannon and Ryan serve up at the pass was an particularly fun. Heli hiking was great fun and the MTB trails and hiking are beautiful. It is very very expensive but a very memorable few days. Highly... More

The setting is stunning and this is only matched by the service and standards set at Clayoqout. The tents were lovey and comfortable, the camp setting and cook house (with open fires) very inviting and there was constant food and drink whenever you had the time to be hungry or to relax with a glass of wine. Everyday was filled... More

what a wonderful experience for couples. service was exceptional and meals were delicious. itinerary isn't as flexible as the owner makes it seem on arrival day but they are pleasantly accommodating. the grounds are lovely and tents cozy. prices are high but you do get 5 star service. I have already recommended to multiple friends that enjoy great traveling. enjoyed... More

Thank you Lisa C for your honest review. We appreciate your points and do try to be as open and flexible as possible during each person's stay here with us.

Seriously the best family adventure vacation we've ever taken. Everything was perfect from the seaplane to the island (where our son's got to co-pilot) to the arrival wagon bringing us up to the cook house for champagne and appetizers. The activities were custom designed for your wants/needs each day. John and his team really know how to offer seamless service.... More

Imagine wilderness camping with 5 star dining with perfectly selected wine pairings after a day of unique land or sea activities and retiring to a stove warmed creek side tent with radiant heated floors in the bath, an outdoor shower and the stars of a light pollution-free sky and you have an idea of this low key but refined wilderness...

I have traveled all over the world to every continent except Antarctica and have stayed in some of the finest accommodations available. I have experienced superb service in places one might not expect it, but NEVER to the degree our group received at Clayoquot last week!
