Haida Gwaii Discovery Tours offers a unique opportunity to participate in a 5-day 4-night discovery tour of Haida Gwaii.
Similar to tours offered in the past by Natural History Societies these tours are based out of comfortable accommodations centrally located along the banks of the Tlell River within Naikoon Provincial Park and involve daylong excursions to areas of interest around the Islands exploring the natural, cultural and settlement history of the Islands. Experienced local guides in conjunction with expert local guest speakers allow visitors to learn about this unique area and leave with a broader understanding of the conditions that make this a truly special place.
Tours are limited to 14 participants and cover all of the Islands major stops and points of interest, as well as many lesser known local areas.
