Campbell Rivers and the Snowden Forest
Today we head north to explore the picturesque fishing town Campbell River. This community knew how to exploit Snowden Forest for its “single-istic” potential. Historically, this forest, which seems more like a botanical park, was created as a collective effort of the local population to reforest the old logging roads. Since 1994, over 175km of fantastically fluid, fun, and sloping mountain biking trails were created, offering spicy turns through an immaculate forest of tree-sized ferns and giant conifers. We return to Cumberland at the end of the day. Dinner and lodging same as the previous night.
Optional activity: Those who prefer to take a day off from biking can take a ferry with a local native guide to explore the surrounding islands and the Strait of Johnston. You may be lucky enough to spot orcas, humpback whales, dolphins and bears. 4 hours. $149pp. http://www.aboriginaljourneys.com/whale-watching-tour/
