Clayoquot Wilderness Resorts & Spa
“Roughing it” at Clayoquot should appeal to even the most dedicated sybarite. A floatplane brings guests from Vancouver to a secluded compound hugging a spruce- and cedar-shaded shore. The 20 antiques- furnished tents have fireplaces and birchwood beds piled high with down comforters and pillows. Hearty four-course dinners are prepared with regional ingredients—free-range hens, small-batch cheeses, just-picked berries. After kayaking the nearby fjords, head to the waterfront wood-fired hot tub, keeping an eye out for blue herons and harbor seals.
