Vancouver Island Highlights



VI's second largest city is also known as Harbour City. You can hike, bike, bungy and kayak here. There’s also a growing arts scene. A good base to explore the island.


This small town with a British feel offers good hostels, fun parties and killer whale expeditions. Victoria is a good jumping off point for exploring the island. Locally, don’t miss the Butchart Gardens, whale watching and the Empress Hotel.
