Bathe in the temperate rainforest on Haida Gwaii at these cabin rentals among the trees

Known as the Canadian Galápagos, Haida Gwaii is an archipelago off the west coast of British Columbia teeming with wildlife. The islands are home to unique sub-species not found anywhere else in the world, including the saw-whet owl, hairy woodpecker, steller’s jay, and Peale’s peregrine falcon.

Beyond the unique wildlife, Haida Gwaii introduces visitors to British Columbia’s rugged wilderness with isolated beaches and scenic hikes through the area’s temperate rainforests. If you’re interested in taking in some culture, the archipelago, which resides in Haida territory, features totem poles and longhouses from some of the oldest examples of coastal First Nations’ villages.

Regardless of your interests, Haida Gwaii is the ultimate wilderness retreat, allowing you to relax and reset from city life. Be sure to check the Council of Haida Nation’s website for updated COVID-19 protocols before booking your trip.

On a clear day, you can see Alaska from the balcony of this Haida Gwaii cottage rental. The oceanfront property is a short drive from the Delkatla Nature Sanctuary, Naikoon Provincial Park, and Tow Hill—a massive, volcanic plug on the north tip of Graham Island.
