Clayoquot presents the wild side of luxury. This is next-level glamping; drenched with decadence in the middle of BC's wilderness. The decor is turn-of-the-century-inspired and captures the essence of an old-school explorer. This spot allows you to be in nature and comfort at the same time, effortlessly.
