A trunk-round viewing platform at the height of the forest canopy and offering sweeping views through the leaves to Bedwell Sound and beyond is the goal for the rappelling – or tree-climbing – experience at Clayoquot.

The forest canopy viewing platform was purpose built for the centuries-old spruce tree by the Greenheart Conservation Company of Vancouver. Guests ascend to the platform using a system of ropes and pulleys and assisted by lodge guides, who help from above.

A bird’s eye view into the rainforest canopy and out over the estuary is the top prize before rappelling back down to earth.
