Tofino: An Immersive Learning Experience

Mar 31 - Apr 03, 2023

4 days | Canada | alumni UBC Travel Club

Study Leader Heather Pelletier, BA'04, is hosting a webinar titled, "Talking Trees: Nature Has a Lot to Teach Us If We Listen" on Tuesday, December 6 at 11:00AM PT / 2:00 PM ET. Register here!

Purpose driven travel has become more important than ever, especially following the pandemic as travellers look for enriching learning experiences and personal growth.

This tour’s main focus is nature and what we can learn from natural systems in relation to meaningful change. It also appeals to travellers with interests in food and wine, arts and culture, and overall wellness as these are all connected through nature.

Tofino, British Columbia, the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the ƛaʔuukʷiʔatḥ Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation is our base. It’s a world-class resort known for lush forests, rugged outcrops and misty sandy beaches. Each day starts with gentle walks in the temperate rain forest guided by Heather Pelletier BA’04, founder of Nature’s Boardroom.

Participants will have the opportunity to dive deeper on a personal level with the support of a professional facilitator and executive life coach, Heather White, BA'03.

Not only will you be immersed in nature and learning from nature, you’ll be tasting it too! Winner of Canada’s Top Chef, Paul Moran will take you foraging then will prepare a gourmet meal of local wild food.

We will also spend time with Indigenous artists to help us gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of nature and art combined.

Tofino is a spiritual place with astounding natural beauty; the perfect place to reflect, breathe, connect and open yourself to new possibilities.

This tour is limited to 16 people to ensure a small group experience and time for discussion and reflection.

The tour price listed is based on single occupancy. Please enquire if you wish to share a suite.
