Known for its beautiful scenery and abundant forests, beaches, and wildlife, Vancouver Island is just a short ferry ride away from the bustling Lower Mainland. Get away from it all on a multi-day hike along the West Coast Trail, view some of the world’s largest trees in Strathcona Provincial Park, reel in the catch of a lifetime in Campbell River (the “Salmon Capital of the World”), or explore the charming Gulf Islands by kayak – there are endless outdoor adventure opportunities! The Vancouver Island Backroad Mapbooks 9th edition includes many map updates and cartographic style changes including enhanced private land, expanded fish species and countless multi-use trail and ATV trail additions. The Adventure listings have also been expanded and updated to ensure you get the most up-to-date and accurate information possible for your adventure of choice.
