Surfing peaks, storms descend & value expands at Long Beach Lodge

Why Winter is the best time to experience Tofino, BC

Nov. 12, 2014, Tofino, BC – During a period when the waves are higher and room rates are lower, Long Beach Lodge Resort is offering some of the best experiences on the west coast of British Columbia including surfing, exploring and simply relaxing as storm season begins on Canada’s wild West Coast.

Winter is prime time for surfing in Tofino, thanks to more consistent waves along the beaches and bays. However, unlike ski destinations where the rates increase with the height of the powder, Tofino slows down and value is high as true soft adventurers travel to this remote destination to enjoy the wild weather, nature at its most extreme, combined with award winning accommodation and cuisine.

Long Beach Lodge Resort is offering the following Storm Season specials for 2014 - 15:

Discover Surfing program - Until March 15, 2015

Why go? Voted the best surf town in North America by Outside Magazine and National Geographic, Tofino is a great place to update those surfing skills or try surfing for the first time. Long Beach Lodge Resort's Surf Club Adventure Centre is a one-of-a-kind facility, a first in Canada, and sets a new standard for the surfing world.
