Travel Guides

The largest North American island in the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver Island is 100 kilometers at its widest point and 450 kilometres in length with 3,440 kilometres of coastline. The Island's physical features are characterized as coastal plains in the east, long fjords on the western coast, and a chain of glaciated mountains that geographically and climatically split the island down its centre.

Weather systems off the Pacific collide with this mountain barrier, rise, and release moisture on the west side of the mountains. The rugged west coast features dense, ancient rainforests, steep, narrow valleys and remote wind-battered shores.

Wildlife and also fellow travellers on the trip but both wonderfully well organised and the natural beauty of this place speaks for itself.
