About Haida Gwaii
Haida Gwaii (formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands) is an archipelago of more than 150 islands. The region is a popular destination for travelers seeking beautiful coastal landscapes and a fascinating First Nations culture. The islands are some of the world’s richest heritage treasures, with more than 500 archeological sites.
Haida Gwaii’s climate produces lush vegetation and abundant wildlife. Groups of Sitka deer feed on the grassy clearings along the Queen Charlotte Highway, and eagles—often hundreds at a time—can be seen flying overhead in spring and summer.
Island waters teem with sea life. Watch for Grey, Orca, and humpback whales along with seals, sea lions, porpoises, and marine birds. For the ultimate vantage point, take a kayaking day-trip in Skidegate Inlet or a multi-day paddle to Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site—North America’s #1 national park according to National Geographic Traveler Magazine.
