An ocean-carved paradise strewn with rustic towns, all of which are surrounded by beaches, wildlife and distant snow-capped mountains, Vancouver Island has long been a draw for artists and is home to a variety of galleries and studios selling locally produced arts and crafts.
Voted as the “#6 Island in the World” in Conde Nast 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards and honored with the “Best Island in Canada” award for 2015 from Travel and Leisure, Vancouver Island is ripe with outdoor adventures and culturally distinct towns.
Sidney is known for its charming bookstores, and the Wild Pacific Trail in Ucluelet is studded with ancient cedars and rocky bluffs along an endless coastline. Tourists have long rated Vancouver Island as one of the friendliest places to visit, so be sure to chat with locals over a coffee or pint!
