Edged by the Insular Mountain Range of Vancouver Island and Pacific Ocean, Pacific Rim National Park is one of Canada’s natural treasures. From the majestic coastal mountains to the ancient rainforest to the rugged shoreline, Pacific Rim offers stunning natural landscapes, dynamic history, and exciting adventures. Encompassing 317 square miles on the southwest coast of Vancouver Island, Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is comprised of three units – Long Beach, Broken Group Islands and West Coast Trail – where natural wonders are woven with the legacy of the First Nations. Explore miles of coastal trails and pristine beaches. Ramble over headlands, gaze at tide pools, and watch the fury of the sea against the rocks. Enjoy exciting activities like fishing, birding, hiking, cycling, kayaking, and whale and storm watching. Hike through a rainforest of towering Sitka spruce, kayak through the Broken Group Islands, an archipelago of a hundred islands and rocks, bike on the Pacific Rim Highway and explore the 47-mile West Coast Trail.
