Start the day with a scenic drive into the interior of Graham Island. Yakoun lake is our first stop. It’s a moderate hike through lush old growth forests. The tree line opens to a beautiful lake with mountain views. On a warm day enjoy a swim. Bald eagles, loons and sitka black tailed deer can often be seen on this trail. After the morning hike the next stop is the west coast.
Rennell Sound is often associated with the ‘wild west’ and that’s not talking about ‘old western flicks’. This body of water is the largest inlet on the west coast of Graham Island and is the only vehicle accessible area to the west coast of Haida Gwaii. Its ruggedly beautiful shoreline, particularly the northern shores, tell tales of the mightiest storms that are known to the west coast. Geographically, this is a natural funnel for debris or treasures of the sea. A beach comber’s haven.
