Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
The most famous images of Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) feature massive mossy trees, exponentially wider than a human hug.
Many have the ocean in the background and some have Haida totem poles, hundreds of years old, in the foreground.
The majority of these photos were taken in one of the Queen Charlotte's two nature parks, Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve or Naikoon Provincial Park. Both offer endless opportunities for adventure and to experience breathtaking sights of pristine nature and wildlife.
Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve
Gwaii Haanas encompasses the lower half of Haida Gwaii and is accessible by boat or plane. In addition to a large chunk of Moresby Island and thousands of diverse, secluded islands and islets covered in thick vegetation and wildlife, Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve features a natural hot spring island and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, SGang Gwaay.
