A short ferry ride from Nanaimo, Gabriola is known as “Isle of the Arts” thanks to the hundreds of artists, sculptors, photographers, writers and musicians who reside here. Pick up the Gabriola Loop map for cycling and driving tours that wind past numerous galleries and home studios. Relax on warm sandstone beaches, pluck mussels from the shore and hike the Petroglyph Trail in search of Coast Salish history. Plan visits for the Gabriola Theatre Festival in August and the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend studio tour.

Visit Hello Gabriola to learn more about activities, places to stay, and for information about getting around.
