Hiking around Eagle Nook in Barkley Sound

The west coast of Vancouver Island is known for its ancient forests, stunning coastlines, and beautiful nature. It’s one of the best vacation destinations for eco-adventures. From whale watching to salmon fishing, hiking to kayaking, if you enjoy outdoor adventures, British Columbia is the place to be. Eagle Nook Resort is known for fishing charters, but there’s so much more we can offer. With over 17 miles of hiking trails, you can experience nature on our South Beach Trail or Lifesaving Trail and get all the benefits of hiking.

Experience Wildlife Up Close and Personal

Vancouver Island hosts some of the world’s most fascinating wildlife. During the summer season, humpback and grey whales enjoy playing off the coast. Seals and sea lions can often be spotted laying on the rocks. It’s common to see black bears and bald eagles in the area. The Broken Group Islands host both otters and orcas. When you’re hiking on our trails, you may see dozens of species of birds that are native to Barkley Sound.

Enjoy the Tranquility

Hiking around the Wild Pacific Trail offers benefits that go beyond the physical. Hiking is a powerful cardio workout that strengthens your muscles and improves your balance. Walking over the difficult terrain increases your bone density and lowers your risk of heart disease. Hiking is good for your mind. We’re ingrained to be in nature. Come hiking in BC to improve your mood and reduce your stress and anxiety. The trails at Eagle Nook are well-marked, so you can follow the loop whether you’re a beginner or experienced hiker.

Every Moment is a Picture-Perfect Moment

An eco-adventure at Eagle Nook Resort offers many moments you’ll want to capture with a photograph. The best times for taking pictures outdoors are daybreak and sunset. Outside of those times, you’ll want to use additional lighting to take beautiful pictures.  

It may require more effort to take a camera with you on your hike, but it’s worth having those memories for looking back at your vacation in British Columbia. Tell your hiking story by taking pictures from the time you pack your bags and start out on the trail. Capture the little moments along the way, like taking a snack break, finding moss on a tree, or taking your boots off when you get back to the fishing resort. When you get home, you’ll have a narrative that will make you want to come back next year for more memories.
