Victoria Island and Vancouver Island are commonly mistaken for each other but are actually quite different places. Located in the Arctic, Victoria Island is incredibly difficult to get to. Wonderfully wild Vancouver Island, however, is just a hop, skip and a jump away from the mainland of British Columbia.
In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday this past weekend, I thought I’d share my favourite places and moments of life and travels in this…
Hidden in the deep green valleys of Vancouver Island’s Strathcona Park is Della Falls, Canada’s highest waterfall. An epic 80km paddling and hiking adventure, with all of the info you need to take on the journey yourself
A warm welcome, a dog barman and an exceptionally good beer/cider hybrid
A 50km hike through lush rainforest, sand dunes, stunning beaches and interesting history in Cape Scott Provincial Park, at the North-Western tip of Vancouver Island. Our experience and all the details to hike this unique trail yourself.
Most visitors to Vancouver Island see only Tofino and Victoria. It’s a great combo but Vancouver Island has MUCH more to offer! See the magnificence of Vancouver Island’s coast and rainforest beauty without the crowds on these three road trip itineraries.
Newcastle Island is a little haven from Nanaimo’s city bustle and makes for a lovely day or afternoon trip from Vancouver Island, especially for paddlers
Looking for a Vancouver Island road trip that offers fewer crowds than Tofino and an even better range of scenery and activities on offer? Check out…
