The Pacific Rim Highway travels 130 kilometers (78 miles) through Vancouver Island’s rugged mountain backbone out to the pounding surf, massive beaches, and old-growth forests of BC’s wild west coast in Pacific Rim National Park. The middle section of this drive is among the most challenging in the book as it twists and turns along the contours of the Mackenzie Range before reaching the coast, Tofino, and island-dotted Clayoquot Sound.
Special attractions: Exciting driving, mountain views, interesting forests, the best beaches in Canada, the coastal communities of Ucuelet and Tofino, excellent fishing, whale watching, and sea kayaking in Clayoquot Sound. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
