What are the best places to discover the arts and culture of Vancouver Island?

Art and culture on Vancouver Island

Visitors to Vancouver Island interested in arts and culture won't be disappointed, as there are several fine museums and galleries in Victoria and beyond. Celebrating the rich cultural heritage of the local First Nations people and European settlers in this part of British Columbia, the Royal British Columbia Museum is a cultural treasure – a few hours spent there will enrich your time on the island. In addition to browsing the exhibitions, make sure to attend the lectures and discussions taking place regularly at the museum.

Fans of live theatre and music will be happy to hear that Victoria is also the home of several great performing arts spaces.

What are the best activities for families Vancouver Island?

A great family holiday destination

An ideal holiday destination for visitors of all ages, Vancouver Island provides plenty of fun things to see and do for even the youngest members of the family. Kids will love joining their parents to walk, cycle, or beachcomb on the various scenic beaches, and older children may enjoy horseback riding, canoeing, or Segway tours. An unforgettable experience for young animal lovers would be spotting orcas on a whale-watching cruise, or visiting wildlife centres such as the wonderful North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre or the Morrell Nature Sanctuary.

Victoria's larger cultural institutions also offer terrific activities that will entertain and inform children. The Royal British Columbia Museum holds regular family events such as the weekly Wonder Sunday program, which includes engaging presentations and activities inspired by current exhibitions.

Where are the unique attractions Vancouver Island?

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. There are plenty of guided bus tours available, as well as whale-watching and other short boat cruises.

Foodies aren't left out either, with several terrific festivals showcasing local produce and fine food such as Taste Victoria, The North Island's Gourmet Picnic, and the Cider Harvest Festival. Last but not least, many of Vancouver Island's best festivals are child-friendly events with loads of fun, hands-on activities for kids. These include smaller gatherings such as community fairs as well as larger events like the Vancouver Island Children's Book Festival.
