About Vancouver Island
Vancouver Island has a population of over 750,000 and stretches southeast to northwest along the western coast of British Columbia.
The rugged west coast is cut deeply by fjords lined between high mountains with many communities located along the shores of protected bays. The eastern plain is rich with timber, farmlands, fishing streams, villages, and modern cities.
Vancouver Island accommodations, BC Outdoor Adventure and indoor activities are available to suit families, honeymooners, day trippers, couples, singles, boaters, or seniors looking for winter longstays in the mild climate.
