One of the most spectacular climates of BC.


The west coast is diverse, alive and lush. Marine life, long beaches, peat bogs, rocky crashing surf, wolves and black bears, gargantuan trees and more all characterize this environment. 

Beware the rain and mud but don't worry, we supply highly waterproof tents, large tarps and there is plenty of driftwood for small campfires to dry off after the rain.

For this environment rain pants and boot gaitors are required and we highly recommend a synthetic sleeping bag.
