Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is located on the western coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

The park is marked by rugged coasts and lush temperate rainforests, and is open from mid-March until mid-October.

It is divided into three separate regions:

1. Long Beach — the most visited and most accessible of the three regions, it is the coastal region between the two main towns in the area, Tofino to Ucluelet.

2. Broken Group Islands — over one hundred small islands and islets in Barkley Sound, with seven camping areas.

3. West Coast Trail — a challenging 5-7 day trail that takes visitors along rocky beaches, through rainforest, and across sometimes rough and muddy terrain.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
