During your tour with local film-maker and outdoor adventurer, Dan King, we will walk the cedar boardwalk through this ancient forest, view some of the giant Douglas Fir trees (the biggest measures 75m (250 ft) in height and 9m (29 ft) in circumference), and even walk inside the hollowed centre of a tree struck by lightening decades ago!

Growing up between the Canadian Prairies and Vancouver Island, off the west coast of Canada, you will find that Dan is an explorer at heart and loves taking others along for the journey!
Joining him for a tour of his favourite island locations and you will be dropped into the middle of the adventure, beauty and wonder of his world ... and after filming an entire season of television shows based on his YouTube destination vlogs, you know he has some stories to tell along the way!
I really appreciated the tour, it was a unique and pleasant experience. The explanations were very clear and the guide was open to questions and gave appropriate answers. Waiting for a new experience.
Fantastic tour! I saw and learned so much in an hour, so many details have been pointed out, it was lively, interactive and on top of this, it was very relaxing.

The tour was excellent and the guide, Dan, was very enthusiastic. It would be interesting if he had included a few more historical or biological facts but he really was an excellent guide.

When I first received the invitation, I thought it was a crazy idea as an activity - walking through a tree forest. My colleague registered, so I decided to register too. I LOVED it! It was really relaxing and helped me refresh my mental thoughts. Our guide, Dan, was fabulous! His voice was calming yet kept my attention. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I would definitely recommend this to others! Thanks for an amazing experience!
So calming and well presented . I loved it !!
I enjoyed your live comments and how you interact with the environnement, I also learned a lot on that great forest. After the tour, I felt relax and inspired like when I go to the woods for real. I would like to visit another great nature spot with you.

Dan did a great job with our tour! He was informative and we could hear him clearly even when he moved away from his device. Nice job!

Our residents had a wonderful time on Dan’s tour. It was the one of the best tour experiences we have had. It really did feel like you were actually there and getting an up close and personal look at the forest. It is very helpful when you have great guides like Dan. We could tell that he was very passionate and excited to share this experience with us. I will be recommending this tour to all my fellow Programming Directors. Thanks again for this wonderful experience.
