It’s starting to get festive at the Inn! We’re decking the halls in anticipation of another fantastic Christmas and New Year. This year marks our 25th Christmas, and it’s indeed become a family tradition to welcome everyone back for some cozy holiday cheer. The long, dark nights of December set the perfect scene for local events and the wonderful glow we have when we come together—the only challenge is choosing between the array of cookies, desserts and cocktails! Speaking of which, start warming up for the upcoming days by watching our Lead Bartender Tyler, at the On The Rocks Bar, prepare one of our seasonal cocktails in celebration of the holidays!

‘Tis the season to give the gift of the Wickaninnish Inn - a gift of wide-open skies, ancient rainforests, crashing waves, and an unforgettable experience on nature’s edge. Visit our online store to shop for our Wickaninnish Inn Gift Cards and more: and send a bit of the Inn home for the holidays.

In Tofino, we celebrate outside! The Wickaninnish Inn’s Second Annual Holiday Light Tour was on December 16th, and we were thrilled to welcome our community and visitors in to share our spirit of the season and collect donations for our community food bank.

Annual Closure (January 2022): A reminder we will be closed from January 2nd to January 27th in the new year for our yearly maintenance and holiday time. This allows us to give some of our team time off, install new features and freshen up for you. We look forward to showing you what we’ve done when we’re back open at the Inn, Ancient Cedars Spa, The Pointe Restaurant, On the Rocks Bar and Driftwood Café on the 28th!
