Like a breath of fresh air, Spring Break is when families get to get away, get together, and reconnect. The annual challenge is where to go and what to do to make sure the kids are stimulated, entertained and (bonus) educated! And as returning families enthusiastically agree, Tofino delivers on all fronts.
In fact, you could say Tofino is like a natural, outdoor amusement park.
Here are 5 more ways to explore Tofino…that you may not have thought of:
1. Do an Interpretive Walk on Wild Pacific Trail
Learn about local ecology, animals and plants with the “natural pros” (literally) from the Raincoast Education Society during free, guided tours of the spectacular Wild Pacific Trail. [more]
2. Visit Ucluelet Aquarium
Explore the marine life of Clayoquot and Barkley Sounds at the Ucluelet Aquarium, including touch tanks for some hands-on learning! [more]
3. Take a self-guided culture crawl
From our majestic, coastal perch on the rugged shores of Vancouver Island, to Clayoquot Sound and the deep-rooted influence of First Nations, you could say art and culture are in Tofino’s DNA. And it’s why so many world-class artisans call Tofino home. Have some budding artists in your family? Head for lunch in town then an inspired stroll of our many, famously great galleries, including:
- Roy Henry Vickers Gallery
- Jeremy Koreski Gallery
- Mark Hobson Gallery
- Reflecting Spirit Gallery…and more.
4. Do a scavenger hunt on Pettinger Point
Take our whimsical, wooden Sunset Trail to Pettinger Point to hunt and gather on a “make it up” scavenger hunt. From gnarled trees and thick salal shrubs to grassy seaside flats surrounded by pounding surf, there are plenty of creative places to hide fun stuff on your list.
5. Have an “unplugged day”
While we offer complimentary, resort-wide Telus Optik internet access, here’s a concept: unplug for a day. (Or your whole stay?!) Put down your devices and disconnect so you can connect. After all:
- Why Tweet when you can go outside and look for eagles?
- Why scroll through Instagram when you’re surrounded by real, live, picture-postcard views?
- Why browse Facebook when you can have actual face-time with your family?
Not booked for Spring Break yet?
Relax, especially when it comes to Tofino. We still have some availability in our beachfront and ocean view accommodations in March, particularly the first couple of weeks.
