The Pacific Rim National Park Reserve of Canada is made up of the Long Beach Unit, the Broken Group Islands Unit and the West Coast Trail Unit. The Long Beach Unit is located just moments from the outskirts of Ucluelet on Highway 4. Ucluelet also offers water access to the Broken Group Islands Unit, an archipelago of islands, inlets, and coves sheltered in Barkley Sound.
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, the smell of moss and ferns below towering trees, and opportunities to view wildlife in their natural habitat - a trip to the park is a must when visiting Ucluelet.
From late June to early September the Kwisitis Visitor Centre offers many indoor and outdoor activities and educational programs for all ages. Go on a guided rainforest walk, explore and learn about tide pool ecosystems, discover the rich heritage of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations of the area, and participate in creating west coast art!
There are also educational films playing in the summer months at the Green Point Campground. You do not need to be a registered guest of the campground to attend these evening shows. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask the Park Interpreters at the Kwisitis Visitor Centre on Wickaninnish Beach.
