Experience the Canadian GalapagosHaida Gwaii, British Columbia, Canada

Swap civilisation for this epic sailing tour of Canada’s Haida Gwaii archipelago. The adventure kicks off with a scenic floatplane flight to your schooner, Passing Cloud, which awaits you on the northern fringe of the reserve. The indigenous Haida people thrived here for more than 14,000 years and you’ll learn about their culture while exploring the ancient villages nestled among towering cedar and spruce trees.

The archipelago is also a marine wonderland. Spot sharks, dolphins and humpback whales in the pelagic zone. Kayak the glassy waters of Burnaby Narrows in search of sunflower stars, moon snails and decorator crabs. Look out for sea lions and orcas at Cape St James. Back on dry land, sink your toes into the sand and tide pools before boarding your floatplane once more for a final glimpse.

Outer Shores Expeditions’ nine-day Gwaii Haanas – Islands at the Edge tour departs between June and August. Prices start at about US$4900.
