With one of the mildest climates in Canada, Vancouver Island is a year-round destination, but right now is the time to cozy up at home with your immediate household. In accordance with the B.C. Provincial Health Order in place from November 19 to December 7, 2020, now is not the time to travel to, or within, British Columbia. Stay home, stay safe, and we’ll see you when the time is right. For more info on the current travel advisories, please see the resources from the province.
If you’re already spending the winter on Vancouver Island, we ask that you follow the guidelines just like a local.

Wear a Mask + Practice Physical Distancing
Safety doesn’t have to be stifling. Whether protecting yourself or those around you, it’s easy to responsibly travel when moving about in an RV or vehicle “bubble.” Science says wearing a mask is our best bet to stay safe, so put one on when you check in and remove it when you are alone in the great outdoors. Stay two metres from others when re-supplying or dining and wander freely on the beaches and in the rainforests of Vancouver Island. Easy.
Whether we like it or not, things have changed. Be sure to avoid disappointment by checking online to view the various protocols of each business you want to visit. It may be a bit more work but it’s much better than showing up to find a business closed or fully booked due to current COVID-19 protocols. Remember: businesses want and need your patronage. They just request that you help them make it happen by following a few simple rules. In exchange for that courtesy, you don’t have to cook dinner.
However you choose to travel, do it with a mind for the environment. We love the places we live, and we love the places we visit. Treat both with the same respect and we can all make sure we leave travel destination—and the earth—a little better than we found it.
