The Vancouver Island region (which includes the Gulf Islands) promises scenic driving routes and unforgettable sightseeing opportunities.

Self-Guided Driving Tours

Take advantage of various mapped driving routes that wind through the region. Check out the entirety of beautiful Salt Spring Island or the Comox Valley.

Take in multiple seaside communities via the BC Ferries Route or the Pacific Marine Circle Route. Or follow the coastline to northern Vancouver Island on the Coast Cariboo Circle Route.

Guided Adventure Tours

Vancouver Island is a hotspot for whale-watching tours, which depart from Victoria and other coastal communities. Look for grizzlies on a bear-watching tour to pristine Knight Inlet. Tour Horne Lake caves to see unique rock formations, such as moon milk and brain rock, or enjoy a guided ocean kayaking tour (complete with gourmet meals). Bird watching, wine tasting, flightseeing and cruising are some other activities to experience with a guide.
