|Facility:||Gwaii Haanas National Park, Reserve and Haida Heritage Site|
|Description:||Together, the Government of Canada and the Council of the Haida Nation manage the special place called Gwaii Haanas through a unique agreement signed in 1993. The two parties strongly agree on the need to protect Gwaii Haanas, even though the question of ownership is unresolved. Gwaii Haanas embodies the essence of the rugged beauty and rich ecology of the Pacific coast. It is a celebration of more than ten thousand years of Haida connection with the land and sea. For some visitors, this opportunity to witness a living culture, and immerse themselves in nature is a spiritual experience.
Gwaii Haanas lies in the southern part of Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands, 130 kilometres off the British Columbia coast and 640 kilometres north of Vancouver. It is a wild and remote area made up of some 138 islands that stretch 90 kilometres from north to south.
Gwaii Haanas has no roads and few services and facilities. Access is by boat or chartered aircraft. If you choose to travel in this challenging north coast environment on your own, in order to travel safely, you must be experienced and self-reliant.
