A tiny settlement on Vancouver Island's wild western coastline, surfers' favorite Tofino occupies a scenic location at the edge of Clayoquot Sound, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Ucluelet Aquarium as well as Tofino Surf School. Bring the kids along to Pacific Rim National Park and Chesterman Beach.

There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Long Beach, go for a walk through Tofino Botanical Gardens, look for gifts at House of Himwitsa, and hike along Rainforest Trail.
