The small island of Quadra offers plenty of opportunities for active travellers. Take a hike, head out kayaking at sunset and enjoy the views of purple-dipped mountains and the black water. Your home away from home is a timber lodge on the coast, nestled amongst the pine trees. The lodge is owned by First Nations residents and it’s decorated in traditional Indian style with large totem poles in the lounge. This is the ideal base from which to explore the local area.

Sea Kayaking

Spend the day exploring the nature reserve before embarking on a special excursion this evening; sea kayaking at sunset. You’ll get a beginners lesson in kayaking and just before sunset set sail (under supervision) to small rock islands. This is a great spot for observing sea lions, as they’re often here lying on their backs, enjoying the last rays of sun.

"Nothing beats the freedom of the open road, and Canada offers just that! My absolute highlights were spotting bears up close and opening my curtain to the most amazing views each morning. Those moments will stay with me forever!"
