Overview

Description

"Inhabited by Huu-ay-aht ancestors for more than 5,000 years, Kiix̣in is the only known remaining traditional First Nations village on the west coast of southern B.C., and it is commemorated as a National Historic Site. Visitors are invited to hike the trail to Kiix̣in, while exploring Vancouver Island’s pristine old-growth rainforest, beautiful protected beaches and significant standing house remains. Along the way, guests will learn about the Huu-ay-aht’s knowledge and history, as well as Indigenous culture in the region. Each cultural tourism exploration to Kiix̣in lasts approximately three and a half hours. Guided by Huu-ay-aht Traditional Knowledge Holders, groups hike along an old-growth rainforest trail with boardwalk sections and stairs, leading to a beautiful protected beach with rocky ledges and tide pools."
