Riding the Storm out at Wickaninnish Inn


With the storm watching season upon us once again, there's no better time to travel to Canada and there’s no better place to watch than from the Wickaninnish Inn, in Tofino, BC, located on Vancouver Island.

Dating back to the late 18th century, the word 'Wickaninnish' is said to mean ‘having no one in front of him in the canoe’ in the Nootka language. For anyone lucky enough to live in BC, Wickaninnish simply means ‘storm watching’.

Perched upon a rock cliff that juts out into the Pacific Ocean, the Wickaninnish Inn offers spectacular views all around. Even though it may be storming outside, the authentic west coast architecture and décor offers a warm and inviting atmosphere for guests.

The 20-foot-tall windows in the lobby offer amazing views but that’s nothing compared to the floor-to-ceiling windows that each of the 75 rooms and suites have to offer. There’s truly not a bad view in the house.

Visitors to the Wickaninnish Inn can enjoy the lounge, Pointe Restaurant, café, or activities like beachcombing along Chesterman beach and nature walks. But whatever you do, don’t forget your camera as you'll find endless photo ops during your stay.

The Ancient Cedars Spa was voted the #1 Hotel Spa in the Continental U.S. and Canada by readers of Travel & Leisure magazine so you might not want to miss this either.

Travel & Leisure also voted the Wickaninnish Inn to be the #5 hotel in the U.S. and Canada and #1 in Canada. During the month of November, the Wickaninnish Inn is offering $220 Storm Special.
