Known for its stunning coastal landscapes and First Nations culture, Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands and its cabin rentals offer natural and cultural attractions in equal measure. Located parallel to the northwest coast of mainland British Columbia, this remote archipelago of more than 150 islands is a popular place to go fishing, hiking, and surfing. Local tour companies operate kayaking trips to Skidegate Inlet and Gwaii National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site, providing opportunities to explore rich and diverse intertidal environments and experience local wildlife.
Haida Gwaii means “Islands of the People” in the local Aboriginal language, and it’s easy to see why. The islands are rich in Aboriginal culture and heritage, with archaeological sites, traditional sculptures and totem poles scattered throughout. Be sure to check out the SGang Gwaay UNESCO World Heritage Site, illustrative of the art and way of life of the Haida peoples and the small communities on Graham Island and Moresby Island, which offer restaurants, shops, and galleries, in addition to various vacation rentals. The Trout House Bakery & Restaurant, the Jags Beanstalk Coffee Shop, and the Purple Onion Deli are favourites among locals and visitors alike.
With their unique natural and cultural attractions and unparalleled wildlife viewing opportunities, cabins for rent in Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands offer a unique off-the-beaten-track experience.+ More
