Vancouver Island Photo Tours

8-12 hour land-based tour to Cape Scott Provincial Park and the outer Vancouver Island coast. It includes 3-4 hours of walking - Maximum of 4 guests

All day land based walking scenery tour in Cape Scott Provincial Park and the scenic outer coast of northern Vancouver Island. We will drive on gravel road one way for about 1.5 – 2 hours, depending on road conditions. Spend some hours in Cape Scott Provincial Park, walking for about 3 hours through a beautiful forest and along sandy beaches. After a picnic style lunch, we will drive a little bit further to the spectacular outer coast where we will walk and enjoy the stunning scenery till we run out of time.

Important notes:!!!

This is a relaxing walking tour which is ideal to give you some photo tips and a little bit more knowledge about photography. While we have chances to see wildlife, we normally don’t see a lot.​

A "typical day" on Cape Scott / West Coast tour:

This tour brings us by car via a gravel road in about 1 hour 45 minutes over to the west side of the Island. 

We will have a couple of stops along the way but will be trying to get over as quickly as we can.
Or focus then will be the visit in Cape Scott Provincial Park. We will be on an easy walk for about 50 minutes (if we photograph a lot it takes a bit longer) to an amazing bay with sandy beaches and beautiful sea stacks. 

There is lots to see and photograph along the beach walk and we will be spending as much time as you want. If we are able to time the visit with a very low tide you also will be seeing lots of tide pools filled with all kind of sea stars and other invertebrates.

As soon as we feel like we captured a lot we walk back to the car to have a healthy lunch with vegetables (if in season) from our own organic garden.

Depending on the time of the day we may have some additional unplanned stops along the way back home.

It is a private custom tour so we will discuss details before we leave and we will tailor the tour around your requests. 

This tour is for everybody, not just photographers, no matter if you have a point & shoot or if you are advanced, it will be a beautiful day out in nature.

This tour is available on special request as a photo tour in which Rolf will show and explain photography to you. There is no fixed schedule and Rolf will “design” the tour “on the go” to meet your personal level of photography.

As a guided tour Rolf or another guide will lead you to the same amazing spots but without the teaching part.
