On Vancouver Island, there are parks and viewpoints, famous gardens and historic lighthouses, arbutus trees and rocky coastlines.

Gaze up at huge 800-year-old Douglas fir trees in Cathedral Grove or see Orcas and sea lions on whale-watching tour. The Pacific Ocean provides lots of opportunities for beachcombing, surfing, and winter storm watching.

Come face-to-fin with a wolf eel at the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre in Sidney, or listen to guides share stories about the Cowichan First Nations at Quw'utsun' Cultural Centre near Duncan.

Be sure to taste local delights: the island's mild weather and fertile soil supports a huge variety of farms, wineries and cideries.
