Recreation on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands of British Columbia requires very little introduction – the opportunities are endless! One could spend several months in the region and still not exhaust all possibilities: hiking and camping in the wilderness and forested regions, mountain biking along remote trails, or scuba diving in waters surpassed only by the Red Sea.

With their ancient forests, rocky shorelines and miles of beaches teeming with marine life, the Discovery Islands are remote, serene places that soothe the soul. Blessed with a balmy climate and an idyllic landscape, the Southern Gulf Islands are each unique in character, but share a gentle, bucolic charm.
