Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge (Vancouver Island, Canada)

A secluded wilderness retreat promoting uninterrupted sleep from dawn to dusk, guests can escape to Vancouver Island’s tranquil forest for recharging. Mornings begin with sunrise yoga before embarking on outdoor activities like glacial plunges, fly fishing, and hiking. Post-adventure-packed days, cozy respites supply green noise rhythms, amplifying nature’s sounds (think: raindrops and the rainforest’s breath) to ensure a rejuvenating snooze.
