Choose from a variety of options at the beautiful Ecolodge at the Tofino Botanical Gardens. This eco-friendly building is situated on 12 acres of waterfront rainforest and gardens at the gateway to the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Rooms have either queens, two singles, or four oversize bunk beds with down duvets, lockable closets, and a window looking out over the rainforest or Tofino Botanical Gardens. Bathrooms are shared, except for one private suite that has one queen and two bunk beds with its own en-suite and living room.

The Pacific Rim, though only a few hours from Vancouver and Seattle, exists in a world of its own. Nestled between ancient rainforest and the wild Pacific Ocean, this spectacular coastline is home to an abundance of natural wonders. At the northern edge of the Pacific Rim National Park, lies the quaint, inviting town of Tofino, which is a home to artists and surfers alike.

Discovered a century ago, when Anglican missionaries searched for the most beautiful place on Vancouver Island, Tofino continues to invoke a sense of breathtaking, awe-inspiring beauty.
