Condé Nast Johansens – Awards for Excellence 2015

We are so thrilled to announce that we have been awarded the very esteemed “Awards of Excellence” by Condé Nast Johansens for 2015. This year we have been awarded Best Sustainable Hospitality and Corporate Responsibility (ECO Property) which we are over the moon about!

We work very hard here at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort to uphold a high standard to protecting the environment. From building a waste treatment centre so that no grey water is expelled into our delicate industry to putting in a multi-million dollar spawning channel so that our wild salmon have a protected place each autumn to spawn, the environment always plays a large part of our corporate responsibility.

 

Over the Top!

We have really gone “Over the Top” now. NEW for this year, you can spend a night on the mountain high above camp under a beautiful canopy of stars.

 

With 5 course dinner complete with wine pairings all prepared by your own personal chef on the mountain and your own guide, this activity will sweep you off your feet!

 

We think that this camping trip is so special that we have decided that in September 2015, spend a 7 night honeymoon with us and this overnight experience is included in your stay!

Wilderness First Aid Course

Our guiding staff spent the last 2 days either upgrading their first aid or getting their Wilderness First Aid course.
*WARNING*: some of these images are graphic but please do know that NO ONE was hurt. John Czornobaj a.k.a. Johnny ABC, our guide and Wilderness First Aid Instructor, just has some really good props!
They went all over the resort and practiced their skills with all kinds of scenarios.
Oh, and not to worry, we don’t actually expect any of these things to happen here!
