Haida Gwaii Kayaking Tours  - Featured Expedition

If you’ve ever been impressed by the scale and powerful artistry of Northwest Coast totem poles in a museum then seeing one in the place that it was originally raised will fill you with awe. The majesty of totem poles grouped along the shoreline of an ancient village on the edge of the open north Pacific Ocean is only one of the unique experiences awaiting you on our “Heart of Gwaii Haanas” expeditions to Haida Gwaii.

Haida Gwaii Kayaking Tour Travel Guide

Formerly the Queen Charlotte Islands, Haida Gwaii is referred to as “Canada’s Galapagos” because of the archipelago’s unique ecology. It is also renown as home of the Haida people whose artistic heritage defines the character of the islands. Gwaii Haanas National Park (Gwaii Haanas means "Place of Wonder")was founded to protect the natural and cultural integrity of the remote southern portion of the Haida Gwaii. Our trips there are shaped by more than 20 years of guiding in the park, timed for the best weather and designed so that you’ll experience the very best of this unique place.

You’ll glide over the wonderful tapestry of brightly colored sea stars at Burnaby Narrows, a natural wonder that contains the highest density of intertidal life on the planet. Journey to the standing totem poles at the Skung Gwaii village (Ninstints), a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and hear the story of each totem pole told by a Haida guide. Along the way you’ll explore a wondrous coastline where sea lions lounge on rocky haul-outs, orcas surge through channels and humpbacks plumb the depths of open bays. Each night you will stay at one of a series of campsites where, long ago, Haida paddlers landed their magnificent cedar canoes, and where the rainforest floors are covered with a thick carpet of moss.
