Strathcona Park Lodge offers all inclusive and guided wilderness expeditions to world class destinations on Vancouver Island including Nootka Island, Nootka Sound and Strathcona Provincial Park. We have been guiding Alpine to Ocean trips longer than anyone else on Vancouver Island.

Strathcona Park Lodge’s multi-day expeditions are best described as world class. From the glacier carved peaks of Strathcona Provincial Park to the Pacific Ocean swells of Nootka Island, enjoy the abundant sea life of the Sound and the captivation of a mountain.

We take care of all the logistics, from shuttles to float plane flights, to food and camping gear. All you need to do is arrive ready to explore a wilderness destination on beautiful Vancouver Island.
