March Mapping Madness!

Our graphic designer, Jen Bailey referred to the final month of the mapping project as March Mapping Madness for understandable reasons! 

While in the midst of planning for a permanent move to Haida Gwaii (perhaps she drank from St. Mary's Spring?), Jenn worked 'night and day' to redesign our visitor map and create ‘walking tour’ maps of each of the Haida Gwaii communities. The mapping information was compiled by local researchers from each community.

The ‘walking tours’ include a totem pole tour in Old Massett, a nature tour in Masset, an historical tour of Port Clements, beach and parkland tours in Tlell and Tow Hill, a cultural tour of Skidegate and waterfront tours in Queen Charlotte and Sandspit.

Jen has also provided us with an updated visitor map for Haida Gwaii (beautiful!). On the back of the map you will find local listings for accommodation, land and water charter tours, restaurants and many other services.

The Guide to Recreation and Trails on Haida Gwaii is a very useful resource for locating hiking/biking/recreational trails and campsites

We encourage you to use these resources for your trip planning - there is so much to do and see!
