Clayoquot Wilderness Resort Review

Sleeping beneath canvas never was so elegant, which is why people from around the globe arrive via floatplane or boat to experience one of the top wilderness resorts. Typical days include ocean fishing, bear watching, horseback riding through the rain forest, or perhaps river rafting or sea kayaking, followed by a lavish dinner. Torch-lit boardwalks lead to platform tents, illuminated with candles and kerosene lanterns and elegantly furnished with antiques and plush bedding. Sip local wines in the outdoor living room before a huge river-stone fireplace, or sidle up to the counter in the open kitchen with a frothy cappuccino and a good book. Per person prices are all-inclusive except for spa treatments and range from C$4,750 for three nights to C$9,450 to seven nights.

High-Style Camping
Before glamping was all the rage, Clayoquot Wilderness Resort was already mixing luxury with backcountry. The resort was designed after late 19th-century Great Camps, where well-to-do vacationers built their own summer leisure sites using local materials that blended in with the surrounding landscape. Using that same philosophy, the resort features more than 20 white canvas guest tents, plus communal tents for dining, lounging, and reading. Instead of slumbering on the dirt as in the days of yore, you rest under duvet covers in your well-appointed tent, cozily burrowed away in the dense British Columbia forest.
