Take the Traveller Quiz Super, Natural British Columbia

The gravel road from Holberg winds on to this rustic fishing village at the Pacific edge of Quatsino Sound. The sheltered harbour features stilt homes, fishing boats, a boardwalk and Kwaksistah Regional Park’s thunderbird totem pole.

Things to do in Winter Harbour

  1. Stroll the waterfront cedar boardwalk in this quaint and historic fishing village nestled in a sheltered harbour southwest of Holberg.
  2. Embark on a sports fishing charter for a rich bounty of salmon, halibut and ling cod fresh from Quatsino Sound and the open Pacific. Book a stay in a campground, RV park or wilderness fishing lodge.
  3. Hike the Botel Park Trail (which delivers gorgeous views of Matthews Island and Forward Inlet) or the Grant Bay Trail out to a surf-pounded beach facing the open Pacific.
  4. Bring a digital camera and fill it with images of eagles, sea otters, fishing boats, kayakers, seaside homes and friends with big smiles hoisting the catch of the day.
