RAIN FOREST TO OCEAN KAYAK CAMPING (or cabin - based) ADVENTURE -There is a place where ocean meets rain forest and where you can still camp on the beach, close to the surf, and have a blazing campfire. Here the stars are bright, and there is a lazy river to kayak which will leave all traces of civilizationbehind as you round the first bend ..With a backdrop of forested hillsides and thundering ocean, this place is as good as it gets. The jumping off spot for this magical place is Port Renfrew, a quaint village located on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, on the edge of the wild, just a couple of hours drive from Victoria.

Wildlife surprises abound: Huge Roosevelt Elk drinking at the water's edge, and in the fall, countless salmon use your kayak as marine slalom posts as they stream up the river to spawn. Victoria soon feels like a thousand kilometres away!

Highlights include kayaking the San Juan River, exploring sea caves, ocean, surfing , visiting Botanical Beach, renowned for its sandstone formations and intertidal lilfe, hiking the San Juan Trail and swimming in fresh water lakes. There is drift wood aplenty on this beach for a latter day Robinson Crusoe types to build the fire or the log fortress of their dreams.
