So much to see and do
Vancouver Island is a nature lover's paradise, and there are plenty of ways that visitors of all ages can appreciate its many attractions. An enjoyable excursion is hiking in some of the island's breathtakingly beautiful national and provincial parks, such as spectacular Pacific Rim National Park and Cape Scott Provincial Park. There are plenty of trails suitable for all levels of fitness, ranging from short and easy strolls to demanding hikes such as those along the iconic West Coast Trail and Juan De Fuca Marine Trail. Above all, make sure to see the awe-inspiring giant redwoods in MacMillan Provincial Park's Cathedral Grove. The landscapes in the park are other-worldly – in fact, some Star Wars scenes were shot here. Afterwards, get an idea of Vancouver Island's diversity by heading to one of the area's stunning beaches, such as Chesterman Beach, a local favourite, or Long Beach, which – you guessed it – is one of the area's longest sand beaches, at 16km.
Other energetic outdoor excursions on Vancouver Island include cycling or kayaking adventures. Adrenaline seekers will want to hit the waves around Ucluelet and Tofino, considered among Canada's top surfing destinations – you can take to the water year round here, thanks to the mild weather. Alternatively, visitors wanting a more relaxed vacation could take a road trip to places of historical interest, artisanal and farmers' markets, and local beauty spots. Joining a sightseeing tour is yet another way to appreciate Vancouver Island's natural beauty and wildlife.
