British Columbia Vacations
Vancouver Island
Undiscovered Destinations
Don't Miss The Boat
Take a cruise through Nootka Sound, from Gold River to Tahsis, on Uchuck III, a small passenger-only ferry that's a converted minesweeper. You'll stop at Yuquot (Friendly Cove), where Captain Cook first met the Mowachaht people. There are site tours as well as great kayaking in the Sound.

On The Trail
If you want a taste of a Pacific trek, but you don't have time (or endurance) for the West Coast Trail, try the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail. It's 47 kilometres (29 miles) long from China Beach to Botanical Beach, with forest and beach trails and lots of wildlife and sealife viewing to be had. Multiple access points off Highway 14, west of Victoria, make it ideal for short day hikes.

Coal Miner's Daughter Tour
For those who've seen Victoria's Craigdarroch Castle where coal barron Robert Dunsmuir lived, come see where the coal miners worked. In Cumberland, the heart of Vancouver Island's east coast coal field, you'll find heritage buildings and the remains of what was once one of the largest Chinatowns in North America.

Ready To Get Down?
Go underground and explore the Horne Lake Caves near Qualicum Bay, Upana Caves near Gold River or Little Huson Cave Regional Park near Zeballos.

How To Get To Paradise
Paradise Meadows, that is. These beautiful alpine meadows with boardwalk trails are part of Strathcona Provincial Park and are easily accessible from Mt. Washington Alpine Resort. To get a spectacular view of Golden Hinde, the Island's highest mountain, and the Strait of Georgia, just take a summer chairlift to the top of Mt. Washington.

Wineries On An Island?
You bet! Vancouver Island has 11 wineries and the only B.C. cidery. Saturna Island also has a winery as well. Tours and tastings are available, some by appointment. With the wineries, farmers' markets, and fabulous seafood restaurants, the islands are a gourmet's paradise.
