Haida Gwaii is one of BC’s best kept secrets. The majestic grouping of rugged islands tucked a couple hundred kilometres off the coastline near Prince Rupert has been dubbed the eighth wonder of the world by nature enthusiasts, and with untamed panoramic views and unprecedentedly abundant wildlife populations, it’s not surprising this destination is a place that needs to be seen to believe.
If you’re looking for an adventurous way to explore the islands, Gwaii Adventure Campers is the answer to your problem. What better way is there to see Haida Gwaii than in your very own vintage Volkswagen Westfalia! Travel around in style and comfort; your wheels by day become your sleeping quarters by night. This meticulously maintained avocado green Westfalia has all the bells and whistles, including a fully functional kitchen with room enough to stand, fold out couch, tons of storage and a bike hitch. Just hop on the ferry or book your shuttle to Skidegate Ferry Terminal if flying into Sandspit airport- they will be waiting for your arrival.

We rented Kyle’s van for five days in August, and it was great! He was super flexible for drop off/pick up locations and timing, and made the whole journey to the Gwaii quite seamless. Everyone on island seemed to know the infamous avocado van, and we were happy to show it off to anyone who asked!
The van was a great way to explore Haida Gwaii! The tips Kyle left for us helped us plan our route and it didn’t take long to get in the swing of things. Unfortunately the Stand up paddle-board wasn’t available but he was willing to accommodate us with other options. The van was in great shape.
