Welcome to Canada’s far west coast, one of the top islands in the world, Vancouver Island. This island is ocean-carved land of extremes ranging from mild to wild, cultured to perspective-changing raw. Paddle through serene coastal waters. Backpack in majestic wilderness parks. Marvel at orcas, black bears and the sheer abundance of furred, feathered and finned wildlife. Gaze at distant snowcapped mountains while splashing barefoot along softly curving beaches. Bomb down mountain bike trails. Stroll seawalls and loop trails. Surf the big waves. Swim with the salmon. Inhale crisp ocean breezes and the mossy fragrance of ancient, old-growth rainforests.
