WHAT TO EXPECT
Chaahluu Kaahlii / Rennel Sound is located in a remote area and accessed by travelling 22 km on logging roads from Daajing Giids / Queen Charlotte, then an additional 11 km drive through the Rennell Pass. Rennell Sound is the only point on the west coast accessible by road, but the final descent from the alpine down to the shore is a startling 24% gradient, one of the steepest public roads in North America. You will be amazed by the wildlife and birds, and the mystique of the landscape. We will visit the beaches of Bonanza and Gregory by following short and easy trails that provide tranquil escapes into the virgin rainforest. We will end our day with a catered picnic on Bonanza beach.
