Wilderness Destinations - Vancouver Island North

Along with covering the northern third of the Island, the Vancouver Island North region also includes the pristine islands of the Broughton Archipelago and large portions of the adjacent coastal mainland wilderness. Much of this land is within the Great Bear Rainforest and offers several remote wilderness adventure resorts.

You can learn to kayak on a fully catered holiday, visit charming resorts accessible only by plane or boat and explore colourful villages of private floating homes. A popular destination for boaters, the region’s remote islands and inlets offer stable moorage. Wilderness enthusiasts looking for eco-friendly adventures will find luxuriously remote floating lodges and resorts offering backcountry catch-and-release fly fishing, heli-ventures, grizzly bear viewing tours and so much more. These experiences are capped by gourmet food and wine served amid spectacular wilderness scenery.
