Idyllically set on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, facing the sands of Chesterman Beach and the crashing rollers of the Pacific Ocean, the Relais & Chateaux Wickaninnish Inn is an oasis of calm and relaxation; a place to escape the stress, to explore and be at one with nature and to enjoy the delights of Tofino and the surrounding area.
How to get there: There are regular flights from Victoria or Vancouver to Tofino, but we would strongly recommend arriving by car. You will experience more of amazing Vancouver Island and having a car to explore Tofino and the Pacific Coast will truly enhance your visit to this stunning location.
