My partner and I recently traveled to Tofino, British Columbia to visit our daughters.

Tofino is on the west coast of Vancouver Island and is home to captivating views, wild seas, and a gourmand’s choice of top notch restaurants. A real foodie heaven and surfer’s paradise.

It is also home to some of the finest Inns and rental cottages right on the ocean side.

We stayed at the Tofino Botanical Gardens Eco-Loge, on the outskirts of town. This is our second stay there and we chose it specifically for it’s eco-features and friendly community feel.

Sustainable travel has always been important to us, as a natural part of our existing lifestyle.

Aside from seeking out eco-accomodations we also plant trees (or donate to a forest rehabilitation initiative)  to offset the amount of flying we do. Usually three trees per flight per person.
