Imagine all of the features of the famed West Coast Trail, put them in an even wilder and more remote setting, remove the massive numbers of tourists and you have the Nootka Trail. This remote and beautiful coastal walk takes in stunning, long, white sandy beaches, rocky headlands, coastal rainforest and ancient First Nations settlements. Abundant wildlife and a superlatively rich coastal ecosystem make this an unforgettable six-day trek.

Mike is a truly excellent guide. We feel very fortunate to have had him. The food was great too - all very high quality. The experience unforgettable. Going on a trip like this really makes you realize what a great country we live in.William Kaplan, Toronto, Ontario.
Two days ago Rita and me ended the Nootka Trail in Gold River and really it was the experience of our lifetime. Our guide Mike and our fellow-hikers Mary and Toby were fantastic. Mike gave us the impression of being in a Hilton hotel:excellent meals and utmost care. We couldn't have imagined a better guide and companions. When we'll be back in Belgium we'll certainly talk to others about this trail , this beautiful country and the excellent guidance by Island Alpine Guides. Of course we'll send some pictures of the trip, but I will only be able to do this when we are at home in Belgium next month. Thanks a lot Rita and Andre.Andre and Rita Van de Perre, Melsele, Belgium.
Just wanted to write and say thanks for organizing another great IAG trip for us. Mike was extremely well prepared with enthusiasm to match, and we had a blast while seeing some of Vancouver Island's most spectacular scenery and wildlife. It has been very difficult getting back to work this week!Mary Thiess and Toby Gorman, Nanaimo, BC.
