Nestled along Canada's West Coast, the Vancouver Island region is a paradise of tranquil islands, pristine coastlines, and emerald forests, where the ever-present Pacific Ocean shapes the scenery and softens the climate.
Discover an ocean-carved land of extremes ranging from mild to wild, cultured to life-affirmingly raw. Backpack in majestic wilderness parks. Marvel at orcas, black bears and the sheer abundance of furred, feathered and finned wildlife. Gaze at distant snowcapped mountains while splashing barefoot along softly curving beaches. Relax, restore and recharge yourself in the region’s cosmopolitan centres, small towns and snug harbours. That’s Vancouver Island.

Vancouver Island draws visitors from around the world to experience life on the coast, from its iconic wildlife to fresh seafood and forested mountains to rugged coastlines and sandy beaches. No one is more familiar with the bounty of this region better than the Coast Salish First Peoples, who proudly share their longstanding connection to the area as the region's first inhabitants.
