British Columbia Vancouver Island guided walking tour map

In the coastal wilderness of Vancouver Island, “a walk in the woods” is something truly inspirational. Along dramatic Western shores, vast swaths of sylvan forests rise from wide beaches and alongside rocky headlands lashed by ocean surf. Soaring cedars, among the tallest trees on earth, tower over Douglas firs, oaks, and dogwoods from a primitive forest floor carpeted with ferns and velvety moss. It’s a remarkably fertile landscape fed by misty Pacific breezes and a stunning network of waterfalls, streams, and fjords. Begin your journey in Vancouver and conclude in the culture-rich British Columbia capital of Victoria. Between, witness the legacies of First Nations people and trace pastoral footpaths through the old-growth forests of Pacific Rim National Park, with a delightful excursion by ferry to the quaint island of Newcastle. Explore remote coastal inlets by Zodiac boat in search of black bears. Savor delectable farm-to-table picnics in spectacular settings and dine on the bounty of the sea, ending each unforgettable day at oceanfront five-star resort accommodations.
