LIVE...

... at nature's edge, on Canada's Pacific Rim, where the rainforest meets the ocean. The Inn is located on Chesterman Beach, 5 km from Tofino, an eclectic community of 1700 where surfers, artists, fishers, nature lovers, and entrepreneurs live side by side.

With miles of beach and the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve nearby, Tofino is the hot destination for year-round surfing, hiking, fishing, and chilling out. Home to many festivals and a vibrant community of young adults, there's always something happening, whether it's the Whale Festival or an indie band passing through. Part of Tofino's appeal is remoteness, being a 2.5 hour drive through a scenic mountain pass to the nearest big city, Nanaimo, or a 45-minute flight to Vancouver. A number of our staff also live in the scenic fishing community of Ucluelet, located 25 minutes south of the Inn. We recommend the following websites for more insight into life on the Pacific Rim: www.tofinotime.com- our local magazine, and www.canada.com/westerly - our local newspaper.

WORK...

... under the prestigious Relais & Châteaux banner, the hallmark of international hospitality standards. We are honoured to have been lauded as one of the world's best in travel bibles, Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure.

PLAY...

... your guitar at a beach fire, or focus on catching that elusive Coho salmon - outdoor activities abound on the Pacific Rim!

With the open ocean on one side, and the tranquil inlet waters and its islands on another, people here spend much of their time on or near the water. Kayaking, surfing, fishing, and beachcombing are all popular pastimes and passions. Home to a notable community of artists and artisans (some of whose work is displayed in our Gift Gallery), this is also the place to hone your painting technique - the inspiring scenery is boundless - or to take up the First Nations tradition of wood carving with local masters. Hiking the trails at the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is the ideal way to explore the rainforest firsthand, with its moss-covered old-growth trees and striking array of wildlife.

With a team of energetic, service-minded individuals from across Canada and around the globe, the Wick is your base for a stimulating social environment. Come join us at the Wick!
