Vancouver Island | Tofino | Canada West Coast | Luxury Lodges & Road Trips

Vancouver Island & the West Coast of Canada is home to Luxury Wilderness & Wildlife Lodges and the best way to explore is on a Self Drive Road Trip. 

Only a short ferry ride from the city, and stretching 460 kilometres along BC’s west coast, Vancouver Island is a big draw for visitors offering easily accessible wilderness and an abundance of wildlife including grizzly bears, black bears, whales, cougars and eagles. 

The quiet, attractive city of Victoria is the province’s political centre. 

The many-domed Parliament buildings are an impressive sight, particularly at night when the facades are illuminated by thousands of lights which reflect in the waters of the harbour. Johnstone Strait is one of the best places in the world to see orca as well as humpback, minke and grey whales. 

Whales are also prevalent off the west coast, where the Pacific Ocean is fringed by the endless beaches and lush forests of world-famous Pacific Rim National Park. 

At the northern end of the island, board a ferry from Port Hardy to take a leisurely cruise through the scenic Inside Passage to Prince Rupert on the mainland.
