"If you are the outdoor type,..." Vancouver Island Tip by joopbie

Vancouver Island, Vancouver: 7 reviews and 7 photos


If you are the outdoor type, it's worth while to travel to Tofino (The west side of Vancouver Island) You get to do a lot of surfing (in freezing cold water from the Glacier), sports fishing with chartered boat(salmon trolling) hiking, mountain biking...etc. You get to see the Pacific ocean view with nothing blocking your sight. Take a long walk on the Long Beach and you will instantly feel refreshed.

I especially enjoy the bonfire on the beach part. Without the light polution, you can see million of stars (and shooting star)

You can travel there by car (via ferry), ferry and airplane. It will take approx. 2.5 hours to get there from Vancouver.

We've got a 38lbs salmon (see photo) Not for vegetarian tho kekeke

One recommendation. If you've caught more than enough salmon, bring them down to Granville Island (see my must do activity section) to smoke them. But keep in mind it will take 2 weeks so you can negotiate with them to ship it over!
