Things To Do Health & Wellness

Visiting Tofino is often described as a transformative experience because the energy of this place often invites introspection and rejuvenation.

Grounding practices like yoga, massage, breathwork, meditation, sauna sessions, and cold plunges are sought after here. Imagine closing your eyes and focusing on your breath with the sound of waves lapping the shoreline. Feel the sun dance across your face as you sit on a yoga mat resting on the sand.

For those who like to get their heart rate up, check out a local gym, or fitness studio, or take a long run on the beach or through the rainforest. For true relaxation, boat through Clayoquot Sound towards a floating bathhouse and renowned Hot Springs Cove, or book a sauna session on the beach for cold dips in the ocean after lounging in a warm, cedar-sided barrel sauna.

Remote, rustic, and…hot. The rejuvenating waters of Hot Springs Cove is a four-season day trip beloved by visitors and residents alike. Travel to Maquinna Marine Provincial Park in traditional Ahousaht territory by seaplane or boat and soak in warm, geothermal hot pools nestled into the rocky shoreline of the Pacific Ocean. For more hot and cold therapy, warm up in a seaside sauna or immersive floating spa in Clayoquot Sound before plunging into the ocean. In town, you can feel weightless in a sound-deprivation float pod.

Step into “Tofino time”

Breathe in the salt air, relax to the sound of the sea, and let time slip away. “Tofino time” is something to embrace. It’s a chance to slow life down.

Spa stones therapy


Revive your body with a relaxing massage. Book an in-room experience and have a practitioner bring the experience to you. Prefer to be immersed in nature with the sound of the birds, the sea, and the wind in the trees? Some spas offer outdoor settings where you can retreat into tranquillity, while traditional spaces offer massage, esthetic services, facials, acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, and other self-care essentials.
