Haida Gwaii, once known as the Queen Charlotte Islands, is an archipelago off British Columbia’s west coast, in Canada. The wildlife-rich Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site includes remote islands and temperate rain forests of first-growth giants and windswept yew. Centuries-old totem poles stand in the remains of the Haida Nation village known as SGang Gwaay Llnagaay, whose moss cathedrals are accessible only by air or water. On Graham Island, Naikoon Provincial Park offers spectacular trails, beaches and camping. Whether you are at the dreaming stage or processing your final impressions of an incredible journey, let us help you inform your adventure. Our mission is to serve your unique vision of discovery.
