Location & Directions

Tofino, British Columbia

The Wickaninnish Inn is located on Vancouver Island, off of Canada's West Coast. Right on Chesterman Beach just outside the boundary to Pacific Rim National Park and close to the township of Tofino.

When to go

BC’s varied climate is influenced by latitude, elevation and ocean proximity but it’s generally warmer in the south and cooler in the north. Winters are mild in Vancouver and Victoria, with only brief snowfalls, while other regions – especially the north and the interior – are subject to freezing temperatures and heavy snow from November to March.

Tofino tends not to experience snowfall, however, is susceptible to impressive Pacific storms that are fascinating to watch from January to March

Spring and fall are often warm and pleasant but rainfall can be heavy, particularly on the coast. Summers (June to September) are mostly dry and sunny with warm temperatures on the coast typically in the low to mid 20's with hotter temperatures inland surpassing 30°C at times in July and August.
