Pacific Rim National Park Reserve

Home to the Nuu-chah-nulth people, the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is a place of wandering beaches, stunning natural beauty and vivid cultural history. Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is a 511 km² park located in British Columbia, Canada, which comprises three separate regions: Long Beach, the Broken Group Islands, and the West Coast Trail. It represents the Pacific Coast Mountains landscape which is characterized by rugged coasts and temperate rainforests. The Long Beach Unit offers many hiking trails through rainforests and beaches. You can spend days exploring the trails or the seemingly endless sandy beaches. With sand between your toes and the smell of moss and ferns below towering trees - a trip to the national park reserve is a must when visiting Tofino and Ucluelet.

History of Pacific Rim

The lands within the park, and each of the communities that surround it, tell intriguing individual stories of human settlement and development. Their histories weave together to form the fabric of today’s society, and the eventual establishment of these lands as part of the Canadian National Park System was brought about, in part, by the recognition of their unique heritage value. The histories of the Nuu-chah-nulth people, and the saga of foreign settlers, have left their mark on the landscape. The imprints of this history represent a valued park resource, integral to understanding and appreciating the varied heritage resources of the land now called Pacific Rim National Park.
