Things to Do
Holland Creek Trail (Picture BC photo)
Ladysmith is close to farms and orchards, and is a perfect location for water sports, such as kayaking and boat cruising.
On land, there is plenty of easy, intermediate, and advanced hiking to pursue, while less strenuous options include touring the community's historic artifacts, taking in an art gallery exhibit, or attending any one of Ladysmith's numerous annual festivals and events.
Pleasure cruising and kayaking are year-round options in Ladysmith's sheltered region of southeastern Vancouver Island. Rent a kayak or Stand Up Paddle (SUP) board from Sealegs Kayaking Adventures at Transfer Beach Park, and push off from the curving cement steps mere metres/feet from its beachfront eco-adventure centre. Join a tour, take lessons, upgrade skills, or purchase a kayak after taking it for a sea trial.
