What you'll do

Walk the village of Tofino while you see the sites and hear fascinating stories that many travellers and even some locals don’t know about! We'll meet at Anchor Park where we will welcome you to Tofino & Clayoquot Sound and recognize we are in Nuu-Chah-Nulth First Nations territory while touching on some key points of First Nations history in the area. We'll continue to 4th Street/Main Street where we'll dig further into the European arrival on the West Coast and also talk about the wildlife of the area. Afterwards, it's on to the Village Green where we talk about the famous ship The Tonquin and its incredible story. We'll also touch on some of the biggest protests that have helped protect the natural beauty around Clayoquot Sound. Around the corner, we'll let you know about Tofino's oldest restaurant and how it's haunted. Afterwards, we'll give you time to explore and learn about the beautiful Roy Henry Vickers Gallery. From there, we'll enjoy Main Street while discussing pop culture on the coast, and some of Tofino's oldest building all before heading to the First Street Dock where we enjoy the most beautiful vantage point of Clayoquot Sound from Tofino. You'll leave the tour with a deeper understanding of the area and how it's evolved into what we enjoy around us today.
