Dolphin & Whale Watching · Parks · Scenic Walking Areas
Just off Canada's far western coastline, Vancouver Island serves as a sprawling natural playground tailor-made for those looking to "get away from it all." For most visitors on a Vancouver Island vacation means exploring the many sandy beaches, gazing or photographing snowcapped mountains, picking up some adrenaline by biking down rugged trails, and hiking through some of the world's oldest and least-spoiled rainforests. If that doesn't fill up your Vancouver Island itinerary, head to Cowichan Valley, a picture-perfect place ideal for foodies and wine lovers. For modern attractions and a bit of island sophistication, visit Victoria, provincial capital with a distinctly Mediterranean climate.
