Welcome to Vancouver Island!

Considered by many to be a piece of Canadian paradise, Vancouver Island is known for its laid-back artistic culture, stunning coastal scenery and flowers, which are in bloom year round. Known simply as 'The Island', this sought-after destination is separated from southwestern mainland BC by the Straight of Georgia and is accessible via ferry from Vancouver. At the southern tip of the Island is BC's capital city, Victoria, a city whose streets and lanes are dotted with pubs and gardens, lending it a reputation of being a little piece of Britain. Historic Nanaimo is the second largest city and gives way to the picturesque Oceanside Region. Campbell River is a famous whale watching spot, while the waves of Tofino and Ucluelet are not to be missed. Strathcona Provincial Park, located near Comox and Courtenay, is considered to be the Island's wilderness gem. The Island one of those rare places where one can both ski and golf in the middle of winter, so it's no wonder many visitors never leave.
