About Us

Cove Adventure Tours Ltd. started as an idea among four friends who have a love for hiking, exploring, the outdoors, and most importantly, northern Vancouver Island. The goal was to provide hiking tours as a way for people to experience remote locations in a safe and comfortable way. Most of the places we travel to are on active logging roads and in areas with no cellular reception, so the level of risk can be high for people who are not knowledgeable of the area and do not have an appropriate vehicle. 

Our hiking day trips offer guests a seamless way to get to the remote west coast beaches in a safe and timely manner. Our tour guides are there to provide a fun and casual atmosphere, knowledge of the local area, and to promote conservation of our environment. We follow the ‘pack it in pack it out’ rule, and will always have garbage bags on hand for impromptu beach cleanups. We want people to experience nature and wildlife and therefor have a greater desire to reduce their impact on the earth.  

We have also chosen to keep our weekly schedule to a minimum to allow for private bookings of our guides and the 12-passenger van. We are happy to take guests wherever they like and help plan your ultimate north island adventure.
