An idyllic island getaway to Vancouver Island, situated along the coastal waterways of the Salish Sea, is the perfect destination to unwind or immerse yourself in a range of exciting activities. If you are wondering where to start then don’t – just get those hiking boots on and set off on any of the valley trails and you’ll be rewarded with majestic sights. Not only on foot, the island’s many treasures can also be explored by mountain bikes, skis or snowboard, by boat exploring the ocean for sightings of Orcas playing in the distance or spending the day out Salmon fishing. Even from the air, you will soar over the stunning landscapes encompassing this beautiful island. Venture to the South and visit Victoria which is the capital city of British Columbia, or explore the scenic Alberni valley with its inlets and creeks, before heading on to the dense rainforest of the Pacific Rim National Park. Continue further to the tranquil North Island which offers a retreat in the heart of unspoiled nature.
