Follow the road less traveled, the one that leads you to the purest kind of wilderness experience. In the Vancouver Island North region, spanning the mountains and coasts of the Island and adjacent mainland, there are vast expanses of land that are still unsettled. Our regional and provincial parks are as much a part of the Island as its people. As much a part of our heritage as the small towns settled over hundreds of years ago.
