Browse our insider’s guide to an outdoor paradise in British Columbia, Canada.

Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii have the best Chinook (King) salmon fishing in the world. Scientists from around the world come here to study Orca (Killer) whales. Northern Vancouver Island is a gateway for some of the most amazing wildlife viewing  you will find anywhere. In many areas you can kayak with whales, sea otters, sea lions, and Pacific White sided dolphins. Bird watchers flock to the Island to photograph many species of migratory birds as they follow their annual routes along the Pacific Flyway. For hikers, the Island offers a range of options from rugged coastal trails to alpine treks and everything in between. Stunning ocean views are on the house.
