Connect with nature in the 31,788 km² (12,273 miles²) that span Vancouver Island, from Victoria to Port Hardy and Tahsis to Campbell River. Enjoy alpine climbing in the Comox Valley, backcountry hiking to the lighthouse of Cape Scott, seaside camping in the Gulf Islands, caving at Horne Lake, and storm watching in Tofino, as well as cycling, jogging, or simply exploring the region’s roads on two wheels or four.

Spring, summer, winter, or fall, there’s a land adventure for everyone, everywhere, on Vancouver Island. Scale a glacier in Comox. Hike the West Coast Trail in the Pacific Rim National Park. Explore the snowfields, rugged wilderness, and natural history of Strathcona Park, the oldest Provincial Park in British Columbia. Go for a jog around Thetis Lake in Victoria. Find Devil’s Bath, Canada’s only cenote, near Port Alice. Go glamping near Tofino or camping in the Cowichan Valley. Or zipline over the trees in Sooke, a rocky chasm in Nanaimo, or through a river canyon near Port Alberni. With nearly 8 million acres of land, including a massive mountain range running the length of the Island, there’s an adventure on land waiting for everyone on Vancouver Island.
