There are more culinary tours on Vancouver Island than in any other BC region, thanks to the abundance of local ingredients from farms, orchards, markets, vineyards and the surrounding Pacific Ocean.

Culinary tours are clustered in the Cowichan Valley, the Gulf Islands, and Comox – these areas are renowned for a commitment to local, organic products and the "slow food" movement. Frommer's travel guide even called the Cowichan Valley "The New Provence" for its thriving agri-tourism.

Join Edible Canada, Island Gourmet Trails and Swallow Tail Tours on guided tours that incorporate gourmet food with kayaking or walking. Looking for a truly West Coast culinary experience? Search for seaweed in Sooke and mushrooms near Mill Bay, or enjoy a traditional Aboriginal feast in Alert Bay.

The area's farms, farmers markets, artisan shops, vineyards and cideries are easy to explore by car or bicycle. Get hands-on at local cooking schools.
