Pictures Of Pacific Rim National Park

A selection of pictures and photos from the beautiful Pacific Rim National Park situated on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

Pacific Rim National Park is situated on the southwest coast of Vancouver Island and is considered one of the most stunning national parks that Canada has to offer. It has something for everyone; the famous rainforests of the Pacific coast, amazing sandy beaches and a variety of Canada's wildlife that make their home here.

The Pacific Rim National Park can be broken up in to three sections, each with its own unique ecosystem and natural treasures. Long Beach is perhaps the most popular and most accessible, especially in the summer as it is a gorgeous beach with unobstructed ocean views. Broken Group Islands is a group of about 100 islands that are very popular for paddlers and kayakers to navigate and explore and the water stays relatively calm here so it is perfect for novice boaters as well.

...Continue gallery information:is the West Coast Trail, which is a stunning yet challenging trail through the forest and down by the shore and is very popular for visitors in search of a little adventure.

Often referred to as 'one of Canada's national treasures', this park is a delicate balance of all the natural wonders that Canada has to offer and that is why it is protected and maintained so it can be enjoyed for many more years by visitors from all over the world.

The park is very large as it measures about 500 kilometres and reaches from Tofino to Port Renfrew. What strikes most visitors when they come to Pacific Rim National Park is not just the sheer size of the area, but the beauty of it. The climate on this coast of Vancouver Island is often wet and the region has a long growing period along with ideal soil conditions; all of which combine to produce lush green vegetation. This vegetation also feeds and nurtures many different species of wildlife as they also thrive in this region.

When visiting the park, sightseers either go to relax or stroll along Long Beach, paddle among the Broken Islands or partake in the most difficult, yet probably the most rewarding part of the park, hiking the West Coast Trail. This trail is not for the novice hiker as accidents and injuries can happen as the trail is steep and difficult in places, but those who have done it say the experience is once-in-a-lifetime. To walk amongst the ancient trees, hear the roar of the ocean in your ears and see the natural beauty of Canada is an experience many would trade for nothing else.
