Icon-PopularAreas-NorthernVancouverIslandNorthern Vancouver Island is for getting lost in nature: kayaking with orcas, grizzly watching, caving, fishing, scuba diving, and skiing.

This area of British Columbia is still a wilderness of rugged beauty that rewards explorers with solitude, secluded beaches, and glimpses of wolves, eagles, bears, even cougars, in their natural habitat. You can also learn about the area’s rich Indigenous culture and hike the northern tip of Cape Scott Trail.

Northern Vancouver Island

The upper third of the North America’s largest island is unspoiled and largely undiscovered, yet it’s just a day’s travel from Vancouver, Victoria, and Seattle. The area also stretches past the shores of Vancouver Island to include Broughton Archipelago, BC’s largest marine park, and magnificent Knight Inlet.
