Vancouver Island's Northern Region offers many adventurous experiences. If you're a nature lover, this is a fantastic part of the island for exploring the great outdoors.
Enjoy wildlife watching, water activities, fishing, spelunking, biking and hiking in this remote, yet beautiful area.
Northern Vancouver Island is known for its unusual land formations, including sink holes, natural canyons and even a rapidly flowing river that disappears into rocks.
And for lovers of marine life, the Browning Wall off North Vancouver Island is one of the best dive sites in BC.
Some say it's one of the top 5 cold water dive areas in the world. Not to mention the Nakwakto Rapids in Seymour Inlet, which boasts the fastest tidal rapids...in the world!

The towns in Vancouver Island's northern region tend to be smaller than those found in the central and southern sections. And this area is definitely more remote and wild than other parts of the island.
Of course, that means you can see and things here that you'd be unlikely to encounter elsewhere on the island.
For example, you can go on a bear watching tour (in a boat), or see majestic whales, dolphins and playful sea otters with a guide. Beautiful birds, including eagles, are also abundant.
When visiting, you’ll see lots of boats, many beautiful vistas and you’ll meet friendly people who will be happy to help you find your way around and enjoy the sights.
No matter what your pleasure, if you love the outdoors, you are sure to find something to enjoy on Vancouver Island North.
