Circle Tour:

Visit North Vancouver Island 

Rich in First Nations tradition and culture, the North Vancouver Island sub region is sparsely populated with less than 5% of Vancouver Islands' people. Most of the communities are coastal and offer opportunities for whale-watching tours, fishing and sightseeing charters as well as beach walks. Visitors will see bald eagles, blue herons, bears, seals and otters and there is a good chance of catching halibut and salmon.

Many lakes in the area offer excellent freshwater fishing as well as swimming and camping.
