Pacific Rainforest Adventure Tours was contacted last month by York Pijahn, a freelance journalist from Germany visiting Vancouver Island on assignment to produce an article for an international airline magazine.
His task was to see and photograph places for travelers to hike where they could experience rainforests, beaches and whales. The locally owned company conducts a regularly scheduled day trip once a week departing from Parksville and Qualicum Beach to Ucluelet and Tofino. The journalist selected this company and their tours as his main source of information about the region.
The article will be published in June in Lufthansa’s Woman’s World magazine.
