Barkley Sound

Trails Adventure Museums
Originally explored and named after 18th-century fur trader Charles William Barkley, the bays, islands, and inlets encompassed by Barkley Sound now serve as a paradise for boaters and paddlers. Visitors take a trip to Barkley Sound to discover hundreds of tiny islands, none of which stretches for more than 2 km (1.2 mi) in length. Adventurous nature lovers flock here at the peak of the summer season, drawn by good diving, fishing, and hiking opportunities. During the off-season, a vacation in Barkley Sound remains an ideal option for those who value solitude and wish to soak in the area's natural sights undisturbed by other tourists. Take stress off the schedule by using our Canada trip builder.
