This summer I had the pleasure of visiting Haida Gwaii, British Columbia. Previously known as the Queen Charlotte Islands, Haida Gwaii is an archipelago of islands off the northern coast of British Columbia and south of the Alaskan Panhandle. Haida Gwaii means “islands of the people” in the native Haida language.
The premier attraction in Haida Gwaii is Gwaii Haanas National Park. It is a very remote and difficult to access are with few overland options for entering the park available. I explored the park on a 4-day zodiac trip with local tour operator, Morseby Explorers.
Haida Gwaii is one of the most wonderful, yet least known places in North America. If you are ever exploring Northern British Columbia, you should be a part of your itinerary.
My visit to Haida Gwaii was made possible by Northern British Columbia Tourism, a not for profit agency of the British Columbia Government.
