Take the Traveller Quiz Super, Natural British Columbia

Holiday mornings here typically feature a therapeutic beach or forest hike followed by brunch or lunch at one of numerous bistros, coffee shops and diners. The day ahead then offers active exercise or gentle diversions. Gaze up in wonder at Cathedral Grove’s old-growth giants in MacMillan Provincial Park. Descend deep underground while spelunking at Horne Lake Caves. Play multiple rounds of mini-golf on Parksville’s delightful storybook courses. Or check out the ancient amphibian bones at the Qualicum Beach Museum.
