Take the Traveller Quiz Super, Natural British Columbia

Vancouver Island’s multicultural makeup has resulted in a fusion of tastes and textures that can’t be found anywhere else in the world, and the region’s excellent water and climate create world-class wines that pair perfectly with Canadian classics and Island specialties.

Savour the Island through a culinary tour that will have you coming back for seconds, or wet your whistle on a wine tasting tour at one of the many wineries in the Cowichan Valley.
Whatever you crave, you’ll find it here.

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.

Farmers Markets

Just about every community on the Island has at least one Farmers Market: a place to find local produce, fresh dairy, herbs, spices, and baked goods. Some of the markets have over 100 vendors, offering a diverse variety of edibles, crafts, and delicious treats to provide you the sustenance you need to keep shopping and exploring. Mane of the markets are open year-round, offering a seasonal selection to spice up the table at home.
