Tucked in between the Gold and Heber Rivers on Vancouver Island, The Gateway to Historic Nootka Sound on Canada’s pacific coast, this is where the road ends and true Canadian wilderness begins. Easy ocean access to the world’s best salmon and halibut fishing. Wilderness and wildlife abound; this is the land of discovery! Fresh glacier fed rivers and lakes make Gold River a flyfisher’s paradise. Visit the site of a 4300 year old First Nations village.

There are so many places to visit and things to do for people of all ages. Seniors can have just as much fun on an ocean cruise to Friendly Cove as extreme hikers testing themselves on the Nootka Trail.
