I've already told you about surreal places in BC you won't believe exist and BC Parks you have to road trip to. I've even told you about the best places to camp this summer so hopefully ya’ll have been taking notes because one thing they all have in common is the amazing surf town of Tofino!

Now I know you have all heard of Tofino before, but if you have never been there let me spell it out for you: Tofino is an island town located at the very top of the peninsula within Clayoquot Sound. Island life is very real in this community. The second you step into the town you can feel the weight of the city fall off your back. Throughout the area lies some of the best lakes and ancient rainforest but this beautiful island is know for its unreal year-round surfing opportunities.

Home to some of the most beautiful beaches in BC and waves to surf for miles. People come from all over the world to surf the Canadian waves in Tofino. If surfing isn't your thing, you can lie out on the beach for hours. At night, the sky will light up with stars like you have never seen it and you are certain to see a couple shooting stars!

Spend the weekend camping in Bella Pacifica Campground or really ball out and rent a cabin at Crystal Cove Resort

Technically Tofino is a 5 hour and 26 minute drive from downtown Vancouver. But if I really break it down, you're spending roughly 4 hours in the car. Take an early ferry and beat the traffic in the morning so your commute to Horseshoe Bay ferry Terminal is roughly 25 minutes. The next hour and forty minutes is spent taking one of BC’s spectacular ferry rides to Vancouver Island. If you're lucky you might even see some marine life!

Once you arrive at the Naniamo Ferry Terminal you are only a short 3 hour drive to the town of Tofino! For someone who just drove all the way across Canada and back, 3 hours is nothing. You got this! Trust me the journey is always part of the adventure and Tofino is always a great adventure!
