Vancouver Island Family: Northwest Family Adventure
From beaches to black bears to the Butchart Gardens – Vancouver Island has it all
Imagine the look on your daughter's face when she sees a real live bear for the first time, lumbering casually along the shoreline, just yards from your Zodiac…or the excitement in your son's voice as he beckons – lying on his belly, peering into a tide pool – for you to come see the giant purple starfish he's found. Welcome to 6 days of family fun on British Columbia's Vancouver Island!
Splash barefoot along untouched Canadian beaches searching for treasures in Pacific Rim National Park. Peer skyward in awe of a 800-year-old Douglas fir in Cathedral Grove. Pedal the quiet bike paths of Gabriola Island, explore the world-famous arboretum in Butchart Gardens and paddle tandem kayaks past along forested coastlines, learning about rainforest ecology, marine life and local history. By night, enjoy a delectable meal and some well-deserved R&R in the comfort of Vancouver Island's best lodges and seaside resorts.
