Explore the Nahmint Valley in a side-by-side 4WD vehicle on a 4-hour, guided tour from Alberni Valley that includes all equipment, rain gear, and snacks. Discover old growth forest, rugged mountain terrain, and waterfalls, and experience the Vancouver Island landscape at its most dramatic. This small-group 4WD tour is limited to 8 participants for a personalized experience, and both morning and afternoon departures are available.
  • 4-hour, guided Nahmint Valley tour
  • Get off the beaten track in a 4x4
  • Chance to spot native wildlife in a natural environment
  • See Vancouver Island's remaining old growth forests
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Snacks and Beverages included
Make your way to the Visitor Centre in Alberni Valley for a 9am or 2pm departure, and follow the trip leader to a base camp that’s 10 minutes away. Get fitted with helmets and riding gloves, then start with a short briefing on 4WD safety and equipment, and practice driving the Polaris RZR Side-By-Side 4-Seater.

Hit the road on the back side of Sproat Lake, following the shoreline for roughly 7.5 miles (12 kilometers), then turn upslope to climb 1,300 feet (396 meters) to a panoramic viewpoint that looks over the Nahmint Valley, Mount Klitsa, Gracie Lake, and Sproat Lake. 

Continue to the Upper Nahmint River Bridge, where you might spot some summer steelhead in the water, and watch for deer, black bear, bald eagles, and the Roosevelt elk that thrive in the Nahmint Valley’s thick forests—these native elk are the largest species of elk in the world. Drive to another viewpoint on Mount Nahmint, where you'll have great views of French Falls and the enormous landslides that swept down the valley walls. Break for snacks and water at Mount Nahmint, then begin the return trip out of Nahmint Valley, passing enormous, old growth trees in the Nahmint Lake Provincial Recreation Site along the way.

This 4-hour 4WD tour concludes at the original departure point.

My family spent a memorable day...

My family spent a memorable day exploring this beautiful countryside, guided by Blane who enthused us with his knowledge of and love for this stunning area. The buggy was great fun and easy to drive over the network of logging roads and trails.We were in safe hands and encouraged to drive within our abilities. Blane also supplied a hearty snack and plenty of water, showed us many stunning vistas and shared with us his favourite, remote, crystal clear lake which gave a much needed chance of a swim to cool off on a scorching July day. An experience not to be missed! Thank you Blane.
