Escape to the Cowichan Valley

Serving as the unofficial capital of the Cowichan Valley, Duncan is a lively town on the southeastern tip of Vancouver Island. It’s easy to see how it earned its City of Totems nickname, with dozens of beautifully carved First Nations totem poles dotting the downtown core. If you’d rather stay out of town, Duncan vacation rentals put you in the heart of the valley’s rolling farmlands, lush vineyards, and shimmering lakes. There’s also a big focus on marine activities, with kayaking, fishing, and whale watching all on the cards.

Things to do

History and heritage in Duncan

Most people are intrigued by Duncan’s totem poles, which makes the Quw'utsun' Cultural Centre a natural first stop. Sitting on the banks of the Cowichan River, it offers a fascinating introduction to the Coast Salish people and Duncan’s First Nations roots. If Quw'utsun' has you infatuated, why not continue your cultural journey at the Cowichan Valley Museum, housed in Duncan’s heritage railway station? If you want to learn more about Duncan’s logging roots, don’t miss the BC Forestry Discovery Centre.

Activities

A wine lover’s wonderland

Thanks to its fertile soil and sunny climate, Duncan is prime winegrowing territory. Whether you’re thirsty for prize-winning Pinot noirs or syrupy raspberry ports, a self-guided tour of the Cowichan Valley Wine Trail is a great way to get acquainted with local blends. The wineries are gorgeous, but nothing beats a sunset wine toast on the deck of your private Duncan vacation rentals property. Foodies shouldn’t miss the Duncan Farmers Market, where you can pick up everything from fresh produce to artisan cheese. Feeling a little overindulged? Why not thrown on your hiking boots and hit the Cowichan Valley Rail Trail?

Weather

Year-round whale watching in Duncan

Thanks to its temperate climate, Duncan is a year-round destination. Summer brings warm weather and plenty of sunshine that continues well into fall. Even in winter, temperatures rarely drop below freezing. If the rain holds off this means it’s still possible to bike, hike, and even enjoy a round of golf. Vancouver Island is home to multiple pods of resident orcas which means that whale watching season runs throughout the year.

Natural features

The gateway to the Gulf Islands

For many travelers, Duncan serves as a jumping point to the Gulf Islands. Salt Spring Island is a fantastic day trip, enchanting visitors with its easy-going lifestyle and free-spirited community. If you’d rather take in the islands from a sun-drenched deck, Duncan vacation rentals unlock access to a host of oceanfront properties with stunning views over Cowichan Bay. Nearby Cowichan River Provincial Park is dotted with hiking trails, as well as drive-in rec sites where you can swim, picnic, and fish.
