Welcome to Vancouver Island North, the destination of choice for outdoor adventurers, nature lovers and cultural enthusiasts. Visitors can expect massive expanses of pristine wilderness, spectacular wildlife viewing opportunities, vast forests, and a chance to take a look back at the history of the region in the museums and cultural and interpretive centres uniquely representing each community. Land based experiences are found at beaches, in parks, on golf courses, on the ski hill, in caves, on bikes, riding the road or the dirt, and hiking trails that range from easy, paved strolls to multi-day hiking adventures. Those who take to the water do so in kayaks, on fishing boats, on surf boards or go deeper to explore the vibrant, underwater world thriving in the clear cold North Island ocean. Arts & culture venues provide visitors with a taste of local culture and history at galleries, studios, museums and cultural centres all around the region. The communities of Vancouver Island North include Port Hardy, Port McNeill, Port Alice, Alert Bay, Sointula, Telegraph Cove, Winter Harbour, Coal Harbour, Quatsino, Woss, Holberg and other wilderness destinations.
