Itinerary

14 days/ 13 nights | Flexi-Trip | Departing Vancouver

Your adventure begins this morning with a scenic ferry ride to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Walk around the ship decks and keep an eye out for dolphins and orcas! We then head into the lush rainforests of Vancouver Island where you get great views of waterfalls, lakes, and 800-year old giant Douglas Fir trees. We make our way into Pacific Rim National Park for our first glimpse of the pristine beaches, battered coastlines, and hundreds of islands. Tonight we stay in Tofino, a quaint little fishing village on the West Coast. (Dinner included)

  • Reservations for tonights accommodation are made at the HI Tofino
  • If you are booking alternative accommodation, ensure you are booking in a location that is a Moose designated pick-up/drop-off, or one that you are comfortable reaching independently.
  • Take this free day to do whatever you please! With so many optional activities such as whale watching, natural hot springs, sea kayaking and surfing to choose from, your stay in Tofino will be nothing short of amazing. If you're not seeking adrenaline, simply unplug and find a beach or go for a hike to relax.

    2. If possible bring a credit card with you while traveling. Credit cards can be used as identification and for making deposits on rentals if needed.
    3. Don't forget your camera - we will guarantee that you will want to take photos of new friends, beautiful scenery and wild animals!
    4. Book your pre-departure accommodation in advance. Moose tours pick up at major hostels in Vancouver. Not sure where to stay? Contact our office for recommendations.
    5. If you have any other questions please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page or contact our office.

      I was traveling with a group of girls and needed some extra help with booking rooms /hotels etc
      All these requests were dealt with in an excellent manner.
      Our Caribou tour guide Krista even helped organize a little birthday surprise for my friends 30th!!!
      Both your staff members are an absolute credit to your company.
      Both guides Krista and Jolene are two lovely girls who are so approachable and clearly love their job and are clearly doing the job they were born to do!
      Wishing them both all the best in the future and hopefully they stay with your company for a long time!
