Bamfield is located at the northern end of the West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island and is renowned for its rugged West Coast beauty. East and West Bamfield are divided by an inlet, making it just a 5 minute boat ride to the west side to where we are located. Once you arrive on the eastside, you will need to take a 5 min water taxi ride across to the Westside. We will then pick you up and take you to the house. Everything on the Westside is accessible within a 20 min walk. There is a grocery store located on the boardwalk, which stretches along the inlet, ideal for an easy walk. There are more challenging walks and hikes in the forest as well.
West Bamfield has a walking culture and there is no need for a vehicle. However the owners live on site and are more than happy to give guests a ride if you have difficulties walking or are picking up groceries from the local shop. Just ask!
