Some of the best hiking anywhere in the world is found on and around Vancouver Island.

The landscapes are varied and beautiful, with sandy beaches, temperate rainforest, caves, waterfalls and rugged mountains. The trails here range from easy one-hour strolls to grinding seven-day treks.

West Coast Trail and Coastline Hikes

British Columbia's most renowned trail is the West Coast Trail, situated in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve on the southwest coast. Considered by some to be the toughest trek in North America, the trail traverses 75km/47mi of wild and remote coastal areas, cedar, hemlock and spruce forests, cliffs, beaches, sandstone ledges and suspension bridges spanning rivers and streams. It's pure wilderness all the way, so hikers must be fit and well equipped for the backcountry.

Further south, the 47km/29mi Juan de Fuca Marine Trail in Juan de Fuca Provincial Park boasts scenery similar to the West Coast Trail, but with several vehicle accessible points en route, making it a favourite for novices and day hikers.
