Now that you're here, what is there to do?

Haida Gwaii is famous for fishing, cultural experiences and annual celebrations/events. Photographers will be kept busy by the abundant plants and wildlife. Endemic creatures such as black bear found nowhere else make for an incredible opportunity for the wildlife enthusiast.

If you'd like more information about any of the areas/events you see here, feel free to ask us. Or, the Guide to Haida Gwaii (available online for viewing or downloading here) has information on all the events, centres, hikes, and sights around the islands. Plan your visit accordingly.
