Vancouver Island North is a paradise of natural splendour. It’s the last frontier, where massive expanses of pristine wilderness beckon to adventurers of all kinds: hikers, kayakers, boaters, divers, campers, and anglers. You can walk on beaches where yours are the only footprints in the sand, see wildlife in its natural habitat, and look at views that are the same now as they were thousands of years ago.
In the midst of all this spectacular wilderness, there are enclaves of civilization with comfortable places to tuck in for the night, restaurants with fresh seafood on the menu, and friendly locals willing to offer tips on the best views, walking trails, and fishing spots. Vancouver Island North truly is a nature lover’s dream come true.
Big, beautiful and peaceful – for naturalists, explorers and outdoor adventurers, it is the place to go if you really want to experience the great outdoors with vast forests, long rugged coastlines, serene lakes, clean rivers, abundant wildlife and plenty of space. If it is wildlife you have come to see, Vancouver Island North is sure to please – orcas (killer whales), as well as humpback, grey and Minke whales, seals, sea lions, Pacific white-sided dolphins, sea otters, porpoises, salmon, eagles, black bear, Roosevelt elk, deer and cougars inhabit the region and tours are available to mainland inlets to see grizzly bears.
