Day 1 West Coast Wilderness Lodge: Make your way independently to the lodge, which is close to Egmont on the Sunshine Coast. Settle in, meet your hosts and enjoy a gourmet meal in the dining room, which has panoramic views of Jervis Inlet.
Day 2 West Coast Wilderness Lodge: Embark on a leisurely self-guided hike through a coastal rainforest out to the Skookumchuck Rapids, just under two miles walk away. This dynamic waterway is the fastest salt water rapids in North America, creating a dazzling array of standing waves, overfalls and whirlpools. The rapids are fascinating to watch in all seasons and the best kayakers in the world come here to test their skills on a big tide. If you prefer, there are bicycles at the lodge, so you could bike to the rapids rather than walk. On your return to the lodge, a variety of other activities and excursions are available, including kayaking and zodiac boat tours or, perhaps visit the exclusive Eco Spa for some relaxation and rejuvenation.
