Vancouver Island

This is a place where dreams start. Imagine a destination where you can hike through ancient rainforests by morning, surf the shores by afternoon and enjoy cuisine and culture by night. Canada's most westerly of destinations can make you feel like you’re not in Canada anymore. You’ll know you’re on Vancouver Island the minute you arrive. Your shoulder relax, your pace slows and you get into Island time.  The possibilities here on one of the world's most Zen-full islands will change you. Welcome to Canada's west coast.  

Victoria is Vancouver Island’s major city and is found on the southern tip. You can get here by float plane, commercial jet or take a leisure sail with BC Ferries into a basecamps, including Nanaimo and Comox. These communities, each with their own experiences, are all along the east coast of the island.  Heading west or north, is when you leave many urban conveniences behind and head into places that will rejuvenate, challenge and teach you new experiences you can’t find anywhere else.
