“At Tofino’s doorstep is the Clayoquot Sound region, a world UNESCO biosphere reserve.
This area boasts one of British Columbia’s most prized nature reserves, Pacific Rim National Park.
Tofino offers the best way to experience BC’s pristine wilderness first hand.” –

“Clayoquot Sound is a magnificent, biologically rich, mostly wilderness area on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. It encompasses 350,000 hectares of land and ocean.” “The “Sound” portion of the region’s name indicates an indented section of coastline, with numerous inlets and islands. “Clayoquot” — pronounced Klak-wot — comes from Tla-o-qui-aht, the name of one of the First Nations tribes who live here.” – Friends of Clayoquot Sound
