Take the Traveller Quiz Super, Natural British Columbia

Winter seems like a far-away dream and if you haven’t already, you might want to consider reaching deep into your closet and taking out your favourite pair of shorts, because it’s time to come out and enjoy the sunshine.

The sun is out, the flowers are out, the people are out…Vancouver Island is starting to show its true colours: people are flocking to the beach, to the lake, trekking up the mountain-side, and participating in the many awesome events and festivals.

In this edition of Island Moments, we share the amazing and the fabulous, the things that make Vancouver Islanders proud. We invite you to explore all our coastline has to offer, and to revel in what you love.

The Secret Stories of Vancouver Island Gardens
READ TIME: 3 mins  |  June - July 2017

Vancouver Island is an iconic garden destination, thanks to a reputation built by the likes of The Butchart Gardens, and it’s a reputation that draws many. But behind gates across the Island, travellers can visit temperate rainforests curated into winding paths that cut through manicured lawns, edged by flowering hedges and canopied by bundled clouds of greenery. We invite you to experience the stories of the gardens, the passions and interests that influenced their craft, whether built by generous garden enthusiasts or experienced pros.
