What To Do in Central Vancouver Island
Many of the Island must-stops can be found in this region; think well-known favourites like goats on a roof, outdoor trails with waterfall vistas, and sprawling ocean views.
In Nanaimo, the blend of nature and culture runs deep. You’re likely to have breakfast at a farm-to-table cafe, hit the trails, and wrap up at a museum, all in one day. It’s easy to navigate from one activity to the next, whether you’re strolling downtown or zipping into cozy gear to go whale watching. And if you’d like to say you’ve island-hopped, you can visit the neighbouring Islands, such as Saysutshun, the traditional territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation (Newcastle Island), and Gabriola.
