Its fair to say we’ve been waiting a whole year to return to Clayoquot Wilderness Resort.
This property truly lives up to its name. 23 luxurious, safari style tents, each laid out with antique furniture plus down duvets and cotton bathrobes.
Some have outdoor showers..all take your breath away.
Activities include clay pigeon shooting, kayaking, Salmon and trout fishing, mountain biking and horseback rides. However, if all you wish to do is relax then head to the spa or slide into their hot tubs right on the riverbank. www.wildretreat.com
