My Formula

Delicious Vancouver Island

Enjoy a quick bite from a gourmet food truck in Victoria, a fresh ceviche in a remote fishing village in Ucluelet, or a picnic lunch served by a helicopter pilot on a 10,000-year-old glacier just off the north end of the Island. Throughout the Island, you’ll find a venue that creates the tastes and smells to make memories that last a lifetime.

With over 2,600 farms working the land on Vancouver Island, local fare is never far away, and with a coastline that stretches over 3,340 km (2,137 miles), the freshest seafood is practically in your plate.

World-Class Wines, Beers, and Spirits of Vancouver Island

Take a tour of over forty different wineries, breweries, cideries, and meaderies in the Cowichan Valley and south Island, or enjoy a cocktail made with spirits from a local distillery. Artisan winemakers and brewmasters have discovered that the Island’s temperate climate and crystal clear waters create the perfect recipe for a diverse selection of adult beverages, best enjoyed with someone special.
