The Amazing Offerings of Vancouver Island

For a nature lover, it doesn't get much better than being on Vancouver Island. From any of the cities and towns on the island, you have access to a wealth of outdoor options.

Want to hang out at a lake? Every region has a number to choose from, whether it is Elk Lake near downtown Victoria, Shawnigan Lake on the south island, Westwood Lake in Nanaimo, Comox Lake near Courtenay, McIvor Lake near Campbell River, or Alice Lake on the north island.

Want to go fishing? From one tip to the other, there are fishing spots a plenty, many with easy driving access.
Camping? Choose from provincial parks, forestry sites, private RV parks or regional campgrounds, stretched along both sides of the island and in the centre as well.

Hiking trails can be found throughout, with major multi-day hiking trails concentrating around the Strathcona Park region, on the west coast of the island and at the northern tip of the island.

Ocean access is readily available, with choices of sandy beaches or rocky shores depending on what you want to spend your time doing.

And don't forget there are two ski hills as well!

Vancouver Island draws visitors every year because of the abundant outdoor opportunities, and this same wealth of nature is why so many stay and make this home.

It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Pass It On!
