A change in perspective can shine a new light on your travels, offer a view of a sight never seen, or take you to new places. Vancouver Island’s landscape of rivers, valleys, peaks, and oceans shape the experiences we share with travellers.

In this edition of Island Moments, we take your travels to new heights & new temperatures. From way up above coursing rivers to decompressing in the steaming waters of a mineral pool, we explore the land of Vancouver Island—highlighting bridges, trestles, skis, and spas.
