Welcome to a region of rocky mountains, vast wilderness, and crashing ocean waves. A place where you can see shy black bears and beautiful orca whales, and camp under a blanket of stars in the incredible national parks. It's also a place where you can tour the sophisticated cities - stroll through the attractions of the cultural capital of Victoria, or experience fine dining and visit the museums in Vancouver. On Vancouver Island, life revolves around the water. Learn how to fly fish in peaceful rivers teeming with salmon, look out for whales on a whale watching tour, or explore tide pools by the beach. If you’re more inclined towards drier activities, you can play a round of golf, scale glaciers in Comox, hike the West Coast Trail in the Pacific Rim National Park, or discover the oldest Provincial Park in BC. Back on mainland Canada, there’s tons to explore on the coast. From the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver to the snug harbour of Prince Rupert, your options are endless. Near Prince Rupert is Khutzeymateen Sanctuary which offers one of the best places in the country to see wild grizzly bears. Further out, you'll find Haida Gwaii, an archipelago of 450 stunning islands home to a rainforest with the world’s largest spruce and cedar trees. It’s a truly magical place.
