Cycle Tour to Haida Gwaii - the Edge of the World
By Jane Weiss
For years a visit to Haida Gwaii has been on our wish list! This archipelago off the Northwest Coast of British Columbia is remote, incredibly beautiful, relatively untouched and rich in Haida culture. The fascinating history of the Haida people goes back to the great floods and the first tree. The islands have been nicknamed the Galapagos of the North because of the distinct flora and fauna that have evolved over thousands of years....and the beaches are amazing!
We are fascinated by this awe-inspiring place, home to Gwaii Haanas National Park and Haida Heritage Site and honoured to be visiting. To make our vacation extra special, we have booked a four day tour with Moresby Explorers. The icing on the cake - our daughter is working as a Guide for Moresby. We are excited to visit with her and learn more about the place she currently calls home.
Our plan is to cycle from our home in Surrey to Port Hardy on Vancouver Island and then make our way to the islands by ferry.
