Established in 1970, Pacific Rim National Park is what most people tend to think about when they’re visiting the Ucluelet-Tofino area. The park is all-encompassing and provides visitors and residents alike an experience that is steeped in history, nature and culture. After you spend a...More

We went on the A and B rainforest trails. Both were elevated boardwalks and permitted us entry into the heart of the forest. So grateful for this wonderful trail.

I'd recommend this treasure of a park to all visiting Vancouver island, the hike through the rain forest was spectacular, and a walk along Long Beach is a must!

Exceelent base for a Tofino/Ucluelet vacation. Sites are provate, showers hot, and I loved the dishwashing area - makes camping a breeze.

There are so many options in this park. Walking the trail to Comber's Beach then toward the main Long Beach area at low tide was good for wildlife sightings.

Pacific Rim National Park actually extends from near the outskirts of Ucluelet to the outskirts of Tofino. The real (i.e., with exhibits) Visitor Center (the Kwistis Visitor Center) is at the east end (nearer to Ucluelet. There are various other non-national park "visitor centers" which...More

Lots of short trails, well maintained tracks and boardwalks so everyone can enjoy the rainforest. Lots of interpretive signs. Great visitor centre; Kwisitis, really informative and friendly. Huge deserted beaches. What's not to like. Really worth a visit.

You can take a ferry from Vancouver to Victoria, then drive North out of Victoria and West across the island on Highway 4 to Tofino. It's a beautiful drive across the island, the latter 2/3rds of the drive are through... More
