Vancouver IslandCanada

See bears, birds, whales and giant salmon in and around the forests, rainforests, seashores, lakes and rivers of this diverse natural setting on the Pacific Ocean.

Across the Strait of Georgia from sophisticated Vancouver is tranquil forested Vancouver Island, one of Canada’s prettiest and most diverse wilderness areas. Hike in the protected Pacific Rim National Park Reserve to see wildlife, very tall ancient trees and fantastic ocean views. Ski in the Beaufort Mountain Range, surf in the Pacific and appreciate stunning beauty throughout the region. Pockets of development in cities such as Ucluelet or Tofino offer cultural arts, spa getaways and insights to the area’s First Nations past.
