Vancouver Island North
It is North America’s largest west coast island and the 11th largest island in Canada. The island is 460 kilometres (290 mi) in length, 80 kilometres (50 mi) in width at its widest point, and 32,134 km2 (12,407 sq mi) in area.
Vancouver Island North is the first word and last stop in western Canada for relaxed and spontaneous eco-adventure. The upper third of the Canadian Pacific’s largest island is unspoiled and largely undiscovered yet just a day’s travel from Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle. The region stretches past the shores of Vancouver Island to include Knight Inlet and a swath of the Great Bear Rainforest on the mainland of British Columbia.
On Vancouver Island North, it’s about an experience – It’s immersing yourself in a landscape with wilderness roots centuries old. A diverse environment made for adventurers, explorers and for the truly wild at heart. It’s rich with wild things in their native habitat, and it’s more than just wildlife viewing, it’s about becoming part of the natural surroundings. It’s opening your heart and mind to the living traditions of the Kwakwaka’wakw People native to this region. Get lost. Find yourself.
