Travel Tips

Take BC Ferries to get to Vancouver Island - like a mini-cruise! 

 

Make sure to go whale watching. Waters surrounding Victoria in particular has some of the most diverse wildlife in the world. 

 

The Pacific Rim is a recognized national park of Canada, that highlights iconic rugged west coast shores and forests. 

 

Victoria is the capital of British Columbia, and has an abundance of historical buildings and classic English-style activities to enjoy. 

 

There are hundreds of hiking, walking, and biking trails, as well as challenging mountain hikes all over the island. I highly recommend Mount Albert Edward for an overnight hiking trip for spectacular views and a bit of a challenge.  

 

For the wine lover, there are wineries all over the island, and particularly in the Cowichan Valley - including award-winners.  

 

For the beer lover, parts of Vancouver Island, and especially Victoria, has been named the micro-brewery capital of Canada. 

 

Whatever your interests, the island has something for everyone; from hiking to fishing to kayaking to whale watching, to winery and beer tours to farmer's markets and island hopping of nearby Gulf Islands.  

 

There's so much to do! Discover Vancouver Island is a great source for identifying the best things to do, without getting overwhelmed :)
