Vancouver Island holidays

Holidays in Vancouver Island

A unique blend of old world charm and new world experiences

Little more than 35 minutes by floatplane from Downtown Vancouver or just over 3 hours by ferry you’ll discover Vancouver Island. Choose to just visit Victoria for a few days, or hire a car and spend longer exploring more of the island. You’ll want to linger as you discover one memorable place after another.
