Vancouver Island sits just off the west coast of Canada in the Pacific Ocean, part of the British Columbia province.
As the largest landmass on the west coast of North America, with a population of just over 750,000, Vancouver Island is a massive wilderness with one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems, scattered with fishing communities and villages along the craggy coastline. It’s also one of the best places to watch whales on the planet, while offering great kayaking opportunities in summer and excellent skiing in winter. The state capital, Victoria, stands proudly on the southern tip, close to the United States border, known for its British colonial architecture, fairy-tale Craigdarroch Castle and vibrantly coloured Butchart Gardens.
The easiest way to reach Vancouver Island from mainland Canada is by ferry, with regular routes to ports on the north coast, all the way down to Victoria in the south. Ferries also link the island with the United States, with frequent crossings from Seattle.
