Vancouver Island Attractions
Taste a Bit of Island Magic
Tourism Vancouver Island takes you on an unparalleled adventure as you discover the abundance of soul-stirring adventures to be had on Vancouver Island.
The Cowichan Valley
Good music, creative arts, an inclusive and diverse community that thrives on fresh food and delights in the stunning scenery which is a daily four seasons backdrop to life in The Cowichan Valley — that is what inspired this short film.
Cowichan is located in Canada’s only maritime Mediterranean climatic zone and is home to the warmest year–round temperatures in the country. For decades now, Cowichan has been producing amazing artisanal food and drink from the region’s burgeoning farms, wineries, cideries and distilleries. Yet, the food and drink are just the tip of the iceberg! From concerts and festivals to outdoor fun, like biking, hiking, fishing, kayaking and more, Cowichan features a long list of things to do all year round.
