3-10 days guided trips | May-September
This remote island is a west coast gem complete with thundering surf, towering trees and plenty of wildlife both on land and in the ocean. Plus you pretty well have it all to yourself.
We start with a spectacular float plane ride to the outer west coast and then take our time hiking the 35 km back to the Muchalaht settlement of Yuquot. There is no fun in rushing so we leisurely explore the world around us and let it all sink in day by day. We travel in a small group of anywhere between 1 and 5 people and 1 experienced Nature Trek Canada guide. Backpacking experience comes in handy, but is not required.
Note – Rather than backpacking you may opt to go for day hikes from a base camp setting.
In addition to the updates, we all wanted to tell you that… we miss our daily dose of Labrador stories, the morning biscuits, boiling water… we miss Nootka!!!!! I wanted to congratulate you on the wonderful trips you guys do. Everything was amazing. It was an incredible experience sharing Nootka with you, thanks for everything, for making it an unforgettable experience for my kids!!!
