Surfing and Soaking in Tofino

Welcome to Tofino Surf School! It is a local, owner-operated surf school offering surf lessons in Tofino, B.C. Their 3-hour group lessons are perfectly designed for first-time surfers or beginners. They offer lessons daily at 8:00 AM, 12:00 PM or 4:00 PM and the cost is $99 per person. They provide all necessary equipment (wetsuits, boots and surfboards).

We highly recommend staying at Long Beach Lodge Resort, click here to book your stay!

After surfing Saturday, why not treat yourself to the hot springs on Sunday? Your body will thank you. We recommend the Tofino Hot Springs Cove Excursion through West Coast Aquatic Safaris which is an exciting 6-hour adventure from door-to-door. Depart on their covered and heated boat from the Tofino harbour and cruise for 90 mins towards Maquinna Provincial Park and Hot Springs Cove. Upon arrival, it is a 2 km walk on a scenic boardwalk to the hot springs. You have 3 hours to enjoy soaking in the springs and exploring the area and then you will walk back and meet your boat.

Take your getaway off the beaten path with the Paradise Ridge Full Day ATV Tour offered through Toby Creek Adventures Ltd.

Enjoy a barbeque lunch at their cozy alpine cabin before returning to base. There are daily departures at 10:30 AM and the duration of the tour is 4.5 hours.

Travel Tip: The best time to book this trip is July or early to mid-August. Wear pants and definitely don’t pack your Sunday best as you’re going to get dirty!

This 2-day/1-night backcountry mountain bike tour with Tyax Adventures begins with a charter flight from Tyax Resort into the heart of the Chilcotin Mountains where endless and mind-blowing single-track riding awaits. This trip is best for intermediate to advanced riders. The ride is cross-country, with some technical cross-country and some hike-a-bike included as well. The daily ride time is 4-6 hours and you will spend the night in the Spruce Lake camp where you can relax, fuel up and enjoy some lake activities before tucking into bed for the night.

Travel Tip: You can book your trip starting as early as July 1st up until the end of September. Keep in mind; you may encounter snow if you decide to go when the season opens.

These cool, quirky and truly unique spherical treehouses are set in the coastal rainforest of Vancouver Island, B.C. Free Spirit Spheres offers three tranquil and unique spheres to choose from Eryn, Melody and Luna. If you want to have the full slumber party experience, we would recommend, Eryn. Eryn sleeps up to 3 with a double bed and a single in the loft.

Travel Tip: Something to keep in mind, there are no bathroom facilities within the spheres. There is a composting toilet outhouse at the base of each sphere, and each sphere has its own private 3-piece bathroom in the bathhouse, located approximately 50 meters from the base of each sphere. There is a min age of 16 yrs to stay in a sphere, also the loft in Eryn has a weight limit of 165 lbs and a requirement of some basic fitness and agility.
