Reconnect at Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge

The eco-safari and lodge in Vancouver Island gives groups a chance to both reconnect with nature and with each other

By Amanda Christensen

If planners are looking for a more off-the-beaten-path, stand-out option to get a group together for a retreat they won’t forget, consider hosting them out in Vancouver Island’s wild west landscape at Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge. It is located in the UNESCO-designated Clayoquot Biosphere Reserve. Retreats like this not only invigorate attendees’ energy and creativity with such proximity to stunning nature, but they also encourage connection between event-goers.

Clayoquot offers direct access to 600 acres of wild nature reserve for groups to explore. Events can be arranged for groups of up to 50 with the use of 25 luxury canvas tents. The lodge also offers gourmet dining with a focus on fresh, local ingredients, and spa treatments to ensure each attendee feels well fed and well rested. Spa add-ons include facial therapies, body rituals, energy healing, a fitness gym, and more.

What makes the property even more unique is that it’s only accessible via floatplane or boat, making it the perfect remote destination for a group wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday and for planners wanting an event beyond the ordinary.
