The Soul of the Wild

Clayoquot Wilderness Resort

Clayoquot Wilderness Resort is a boutique, Relais & Châteaux eco-safari-style resort, open seasonally to guests from all over the world.  We are a true resort destination in that we own and operate our own adventures and activities, and, working closely with the Ahousaht First Nation, provide unprecedented, sustainable access to the UNESCO-designated Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve.

With just 25 guest tents and an over-full complement of staff, wilderness guides and culinary artisans, our clients receive respectfully intimate attention from the moment they arrive via floatplane until they wave goodbye from the horse-drawn wagon carrying them back to the dock.

Flanked by two dining tents, a games tent, activity and billiards tents, and a beautiful new glass waterfront lounge, the log Cookhouse is a hub of gentle activity all day long.  A vast double-sided dry-stack fireplace is the heart of two signature outdoor lounges, where overstuffed couches and deliciously deep armchairs are at the centre of countless new friendships and post-activity tales of adventure

The Healing Grounds Spa promises sanctuary, yoga, wellness, and restorative treatments for body and soul – both at the waterfront spa grounds and remotely, in perfect, quiet isolation.

Cuisine is fine, storied and comforting – rooted in sustainable, locally grown, foraged and harvested ingredients. A traditional slow-oven and period-inspired gastro-adventures complement a celebrated contemporary coastal menu of seasonal dishes, prepared and presented by a team of highly-skilled, critically-acclaimed chefs.

Adventure unfolds in tandem with the rainforest, tides, seasons, and the call of the wild.  An impressive menu of equestrianmarinehikingfishing, interpretive, and restorative activities is offered daily – each outing custom-built to suit age, skill-level and expectation.  Our philosophy and our rates, are at once bespoke and all-inclusive, though we offer an extensive menu of a la carte services and activities. An on-site JetRange helicopter promises a la carte adventure above and beyond.

Surrounded by pristine Crown Land and Strathcona Provincial Park, in the bio-diverse Bedwell estuary, over 600 lush and beautiful river valley acres comprise an Outpost far, far removed, remote and remarkable.  Inacessible by car.  Just 45-minutes by floatplane from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; 40-minutes by boat from Tofino on Vancouver Island.
