Another day, another award for a Vancouver Island community.

Time Magazine has released their annual ‘World’s Greatest Places’ ranking for 2022, and Vancouver Island’s very own Tofino made the list!

The ranking includes 50 extraordinary destinations across the globe, compiled by nominations of places from an international network of correspondents and contributors. 

Tofino, titled the “Wilder West’, made the list as a popular tourist destination for wildlife tours, forest hiking and walks along wide sandy beaches reconnecting people with nature.

The west coast paradise’s powerful winter storms and ocean swells were also emphasized, as they create perfect storm-­watching and cold-water surfing opportunities.

Tofino Resort and Marina and the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve were highlighted as must see spots for visitors.

Toronto, titled ‘Fresh Perspectives’ was the only other Canadian location that made this year’s ‘World’s Greatest Places’ list.
