Tofino

Hotels in Tofino

To reach the wilderness resort that defines the word “glamping” (or glamorous camping), guests fly in by floatplane and then travel on by horse and wagon to the camp. Twenty white, luxury tents are set in the backwoods of Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Located in Central Vancouver Island, just three kilometers from the coastal village of Tofino, Middle Beach Lodge sits on 40 acres of private West Coast oceanfront. The property has two lodges, 20 self-contained cabins, and nearly one mile of private beach.

The Wickaninnish Inn, set on a remote, pine forest–ringed promontory, is best enjoyed during fierce weather—the more ferocious, the better. In the 75 rooms, duvet-covered beds and deep soaking tubs sit beside ample windows that look out on the churning ocean and rain-lashed coast.

Long Beach Lodge Resort sits along eight acres of Vancouver Island's West Coast. The Cox Bay beachfront property has 41 lodge rooms, each with handcrafted Douglas fir furniture, an oversized soaking tub, slate floors, and local artwork on the walls.

“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.
