Ucluelet Itinerary – The Perfect Day Trip

If you only have one day to spend with us, don’t worry. While there is lots to do, here are 5 things you can easily squeeze into a day!

  1. Wild Pacific Trail’s Lighthouse Loop: It takes about 45mins to 1hr, and you’ll enjoy some fantastic ocean views, a rainforest walk, and arrive at the historic 100+-year-old Amphitrite Point Lighthouse along the way.
  2. Visit the Ucluelet Collect & Release Eco Aquarium (seasonal: open from March to end of November). The entire family always loves to see what lives below the sea in our intertidal zone, plus they have amazing interactive touch tanks!
  3. Don’t even dream of exploring on an empty stomach! Stop at a coffee shop, food truck or restaurant for homemade lunch and delightful treats, catering to all food preferences.
  4. Heading just past the junction, you will reach the Rainforest Trail in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve (Each trail is 1km). Don’t forget to make your way to the top of Radar Hill to take in a fantastic view of the coastline in both directions.
  5. Grab a day pass (or Annual Pass) for the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Iconic Long Beach is a must, check out the Shoreline Bog Trail (800m trail dubbed the “Broccoli Forest”  because of the stunted, twisted 300-year-old trees; if you can go when it’s foggy, even better!)

Once at Long Beach you have the choice of continuing down the road to visit Tofino, or head back to Ucluelet for dinner!

If you decide to stay on for a few more days, head over to our Weekender section for more great activities and recommendations.
