Canada’s Vancouver Island is one of the country’s top vacation destinations with many terrific coastal towns being popular locations amongst travellers. A top-rated attraction on the west coast of the island is the fishing village of Tofino. Tofino, named after a Spanish Hydrographer, is one of the most pretty villages Vancouver Island has to offer and its main economic markets are that of aqua culture and tourism.
This relaxed, yet vibrant town is the ideal resort to enjoy a well-earned holiday where visitors can eagerly escape the hustle and bustle of the bigger Canadian cities as well as the stress and strains of modern day life. The docks at Tofino’s harbour are alive and effervescent with numerous boats heading out on to the blue-coloured waters ready to make their catch of the day. The marina is also the scene of a number of fantastic water sports ranging from leisurely to more extreme and competitive. Travellers to Tofino can enjoy sea kayaking, wind surfing, fishing, water skiing, and many other related activities, while some of the best whale watching can also be done from the harbour. For a change in pace, visitors can head out to Hot Springs Cove at Maquinna Provincial Park or soak up the immense aesthetic beauty and colours of the Tofino Botanical Gardens, which is a magnificent combination between shoreline and forest while exploring the fascinating relationship between nature and culture.
There are so many other activities to peruse during your visit to Tofino with many travellers opting on cultural tours to learn more about the rich history of this fishing village, or on 4x4 backroad adventures that unleash the true force of the scintillating terrain and glorious scenery Tofino and Vancouver Island has been blessed with.
