Visiting Tofino, British Columbia on your Canadian train vacation

Tofino, Canada, a small coastal village of about 1,600 residents, is one of Canada's secret gems secluded on the West Coast of Vancouver Island in the province of British Columbia, Canada. At Tofino, Canada's doorstep is the Clayoquot Sound region, a world UNESCO biosphere reserve. This Canadian area boasts one of British Columbia, Canada's most cherished nature reserves the Pacific Rim National Park which comprises rugged Canadian coastlines and lush temperate rainforests that offer a feast of natural Canadian exquisiteness for the nature lover on your Canadian train trip.

With a seafaring Canadian history dating back to 1792, Tofino, Canada was discovered during the European exploration of Vancouver Island by Commanders Galiano and Valdez. The site of Tofino, Canada was named in 1792 after a Spanish admiral and hydrographer, Don Vincente Tofino, who accompanied the expedition. Near the turn of the century, Tofino, Canada's Canadian homesteaders eventually shifted from the island to the peninsula. The Anglican Church, which still stands on Second Street and Main was built in 1913 after the Church of England provided funds and instruction for a church to be erected on the most beautiful pinnacle of Vancouver Island Tofino, Canada was no doubt chosen.

Known as Canada's "Tough City" for its long, rainy and tempest winters, Tofino, Canada was primarily a maritime trading town until the 1950s when a logging road was punched through the mountains between Port Alberni and the coast making it easier for those wanting a relaxing coastal Canadian vacation experience.

Today, its sheer untamed Canadian natural beauty makes the Tofino, Canada area a popular tourist vacation destination in the summer, attracting surfers, nature lovers, campers, whale watchers, fishermen, or anyone just looking to be close to some Canadian nature for a wonderful Canadian vacation experience with vacation packages.

Every March, thousands of grey whales migrate to the Sound in Canada and kick off the annual Pacific Rim Whale Festival.
