bedwellriverDesignated a Biosphere Reserve, Clayoquot Wilderness Resort is situated at the mouth of the Bedwell River, where it spills into a nine-mile-long fjord.

It is located near the seaside village of Tofino, British Columbia and was founded in 1997 by Clayoquot Wilderness Resort Ltd.


loungeGuest tents, like the lounge and spa tents, are roomy, great white canvas prospector-style quarters built on discreetly-situated raised wooden platforms, connected by cedar boardwalks. Placed under canopy of the rainforest and along the water’s edge, beautifully designed Adirondack-style beds are outfitted with luxuriant down duvets for warmth and comfort. Remote-controlled propane woodstoves, antique dressers and tea tables, opulent rugs, oil lamps, heirloom china and silver accessories, and an abundance of candles, complete the offering.

Off-site generators provide hot water to private showers and washrooms, and provide power for essential comforts like electric light, hairdryers and wireless internet.


diningOffering a five-star food and beverage service, guests will be served critically-acclaimed, trademark “modern natural cuisine” under direction of Chef Tim May.

Breakfast is prepared by pastry chefs and breakfast cooks who create a banquet of fresh sweet and savory favorites like wild blueberry and cornmeal griddle cakes, rosemary scones, and pacific smoked salmon eggs benedict with pea-meal Canadian bacon.

Wilderness adventurers take ultra-gourmet backpack lunches along for the ride — or the hike, while loungers can visit Chef May in the cookhouse. Guests can settle in at the bistro or family dining tent, in the cookhouse dining room, or at Chef’s open-kitchen bar.

Chef May tempers classical training and sophisticated technique with a firm belief in letting ingredients speak for themselves. His legendary table d’hote tradition, where guests are served a four-course dinner featuring Chef’s choices, began at the Quait Bay resort in 1997 and evolved to include remarkable B.C. wine pairings.


activityClayoquot’s guided activities and self-guided exploration transports you to a true wilderness playground where the opportunities for adventure are limited by imagination alone.

Adventure begins in the thousands of pristine acres, hundreds of miles of abandoned roads and old-growth forest trails, volcanic beach scapes, alpine valleys, lush fern gardens, and inter-tidal waterways. Horseback riding, kayaking, canoeing, whale and bear watching, hiking and fresh and salt water fishing are a few of the activities at your disposal.
