Nanaimo is a perfect place to launch your Vancouver Island tour from because we are centrally located on Vancouver Island with easy access from Vancouver. You can easily make a day trip to Victoria, Gabriola Island, Mount Washington Ski Area, or Tofino and spectacular Long Beach National Park. It's all within a single day return driving distance from Nanaimo!

There are many beautiful beaches and wonderful trails throughout the area in what can only be described as a true Canadian gem.
