Haida Gwaii Mini-Safari: Leg 4 ONE SEAT LEFT

7 days  ·  Port Hardy, BC → Moresby Island, Haida Gwaii, B.C.  ·  Easy

This cultural trip to Haida Gwaii visits villages on Graham and Morseby islands, explores the splendour of Naikoon Park and includes a zodiac trip to remote Louise Island.

Tour Summary

Your adventure tour to Haida Gwaii begins with a cruise into the deep wilderness of the Inside Passage. At Prince Rupert get your first taste of the proud indigenous culture of seafarers and artists of northwest BC.  In Haida Gwaii, surround yourself in flourishing rainforests, windswept sand-dunes and endless beaches. Visit the totems that honour 10,000 years of history and meet a Haida Watchman. Sit down to a traditional feast of seafood, fresh from the ocean. This is where ancient culture is infused with relevance for us all.

We take in all this and more on our adventure holiday of the remote Queen Charlotte Islands, a colonial name recently replaced with Haida Gwaii which means “Islands of the People”.  A globally unique ecosystem that partially escaped the last ice-age, this archipelago of more than 150 islands evokes comparisons to the equally isolated and biologically diverse Galapagos Islands.  We visit several villages on the largest islands, Graham and Morseby, home to most of Haida Gwaii’s 5000 residents. We immerse ourselves in the splendour of Naikoon Provincial Park. Later we head out by zodiac to the more remote Louise Island and look for its secrets.
