Travel Advisories

As a first step in planning your trip to Ucluelet, it’s a good idea to check for travel advisories. Road construction and conditions can change quickly in the region.

**Google Maps and Apple maps are rerouting drivers to the backside of Sprout Lake to avoid construction areas along Highway 4. Do not take the “alternate route” and to stick to highway 4 unless BC Highways has made the recommendation. The only construction taking place along highway 4 between Port Alberni and the west coast continues at Kennedy Hill.**

As we move into a post COVID era, each local visitor and business operates at their comfort level. Some may ask you to wear a mask, and others will give you the option to do whatever is within your comfort level. Have a wonderful time while visiting Ucluelet, knowing we all respect your personal level of comfort

As you plan your trip to the coast, from time to time things happen along the journey. With the chance of un-precedented winter conditions, always refer to the Drive BC events page for the latest updates on road conditions.
