WickaNimmo Vacation Package

Where rustic elegance on nature's edge meets luxury wilderness adventure

We think you can have it all.  Why compromise between the adventure of heli-fishing in salmon-rich waters and the pampering touch of a much-needed massage?  Gone are the days of flipping the coin between award-winning cuisine and wilderness viewing discoveries.  Just ask our friends at the legendary Nimmo Bay Resort, where a picnic for two at the foot of a 10,000 year old glacier can easily preface a soothing hot tub soak - under a waterfall.  It's just like a how blissful treatment at our Ancient Cedars Spa rewards an inspiring walk through old-growth forest to an oceanside carving shed, where artisans wield their tools, creating First Nations-inspired treasures.  Now, this is treading between reality and fantasy.  Now, that's a vacation.

Experience this fantastical reality in the far peaks and remote beaches of coastal BC, the picture-perfect setting for a vacation distinct from other vacations.  This year, the Wickaninnish Inn and Nimmo Bay Resort are teaming up to offer you a bedazzling six-night vacation getaway - available from July 1st to September 30th - that aims to give you a taste of the very best of coastal BC. 

Nimmo Bay Resort is the BC luxury fishing lodge and wilderness resort you've imagined in your dreams - except it's very real.  First, there's the storybook setting of a floating resort, tucked inside an inlet off BC's Broughton Islands Archipelago.  Then, add in fresh, coastal cuisine, and inter-tidal chalets beckoning you from after-dinner music and laughs with your hosts at a floating fire pit.  During your three-night stay, a private helicopter is your all-day magic carpet ride to your choice of guided BC wilderness adventures - a range of activities that will suit whether you are eight or eighty - but what calls your name?  Maybe you will fish rivers teeming with wild salmon as grizzly bears and eagles silently observe you; there's also white water rafting down a BC coastal river, or you can follow resident Killer Whales in the Johnstone Strait while eavesdropping on them by hydrophone.  And there's more.  Fly to a secret white sand beach for lunch, or heli-hike lush alpine meadows and discover enchanting places where few have set foot before.  At day's end, your magic carpet ride escorts you back to your wilderness pied-a-terre where you will enjoy the best of BC hospitality, and then fall peacefully asleep on the perfect pillow. 

Next, say farewell for now to the Nimmo Bay family and make a mental note to return soon.  Embark the Jet Ranger or A-Star helicopter that will whisk you to the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island by Tofino, home to the Wickaninnish Inn.

As you enter your Chesterman Beach Loft Suite, walk by the chef-designed kitchen and living area/gas fireplace and head straight to the picture window.  With views of endless Pacific breakers and sun-bleached driftwood on the beach, it's like being outside - except with the perks of custom created furnishings and artwork, a heavenly King bed on the loft level upstairs, and room service. Now, this is rustic elegance on nature's edge.  The Inn's locally-sourced culinary program, led by an award-winning kitchen brigade, is yours to savour on this three-day stay in what some of our return guests have called paradise.  Amble down all 1.8 miles or 3 kilometres of Chesterman Beach (which, with its hard-packed sand, is also great for a run), and make your way back to our Ancient Cedars Spa.  Take the time to relax by the warm fire inside, or cuddle on our oceanside patio while contemplating your upcoming aromatic massage.  After this bliss, we completely understand if you decide to call it a day and retreat to your suite.  But we're also happy to set you up with a classic Beach Cruiser bicycle to explore eclectic Tofino, or with recommendations of our favorite trails in the nearby Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.  During your stay with us, browse the Inn's art collection, much of it locally carved, painted and sculpted, with pieces available to take home.  Don't forget to stop by the late Henry Nolla's carving shed, where you will consider leaving it all behind - if only for the daily privilege of walking on a bed of fragrant cedar shavings with the sound of the ocean's waves nearby. 

Although hospitality is our specialty, there is a certain math to it.  Nimmo Bay's Murray family have built a formula - one we're quite fond of - as their equation for the experience guests live.    = MC is the "new math" for the belief that when your expectations are exceeded, then memories are created.  And that's the best souvenir you can carry home.
