In all of the world, there is only one place that combines everything that Vancouver Island has to offer. Located off the cost of British Columiba Canada, accessible from Vancouver BC which was voted one of the top 3 best places to live in the world, featuring world class cities like Victoria, the capital of British Columbia and beautiful resort towns like Tofino on the west side, Vancouver Island should be on everyone's list of must see travel destinations.

Part of what makes Vancouver Island such a special desitnation is that it contains part of the remaining temporate rainforest in the world. As there is less than 3% of all forests designated as this type of forest, it is already very rate on the planet. Unfortunately, due to logging, there is very little that remains. Vancouver Island contains the very last remaining large tracts of temporate rainforests in the world. If you have never seen the beauty of the old growth of a temporate rainforest, this is definitely a must see. Put Vancouver Island at the top of your travel list, you will not be disappointed.

Vancouver Island is actually located amongst a number of islands, some large and accessible by ferry and some small and difficult to access unless you have a private boat. Vancouver Island is the largest of the group and is 460 kilometres (290 miles) in length and 80 kilometres (50 miles) in width at its widest point. Vancouver Island has a number of areas of interest, all with different attractions and merits. Beginning with the area around Victoria at the south end of the island, Victoria is the largest city on Vancouver Island and is one of the world's mot beautiful cities. Victoria has a large selection of world-class attractions, museums, galleries as well as ocean sports, diving, surfing and whalewatching to delight everyone. The central part of the island features resort towns with miles of white sand beaches and beautiful parks. The west side is some of the most beautiful wilderness in the world and is also surprisingly easily accessed. From the spectacular resort town of Tofino, you can easily access the "Wild West Side" by 4 wheel drive, boat or float plane. If you want even more adventure, you have to walk the West Coast Trail which runs from Bamfield to Port Renfrew through some of the most rugged terrain in the world.

If wilderness adventure is not what you seek then the cities, resorts and beaches of Vancouver Island are something to experience. Victoria BC, as the provincial capital, is a city of unparallelled beauty. With it's museums, parks, beaches, restaurants and attractions to suit anyone, there is never enough time to visit and experience everything, Victoria has to be seen to be believed. One of the many world class attractions is the Butchart Gardens, a traditional British style garden that began more than 100 years ago and has continued to expand until today, it now receives more than 1 million visitors a year. Add to that the old-world charm of the City of Victoria with the British style architecture of the inner harbour area of downtown, the beauty of the many oceanfront areas, the special appeal of Beacon Hill Park and the many unique communities to visit, Victoria is a destination of it's own. Don't stop there though, there is so much more to see on Vancouver Island that so many people miss as their intended destination is Victoria or Tofino.

The resort towns of Parksville and Qualicum Beach are truly ideal locations to visit with your extended family as there really is something for everyone from the very youngest to the very oldest. Spend time playing in the sand at Rathtrevor Beach where the tide goes out 2 km. Enjoy the many boutique style shops in Parksville and beyond but make sure you visit Goats on the Roof, it is fun for the whole family. Looking for mountain adventure?
