Canada's industry-leading Vancouver Island BC - Victoria & Gulf Islands backcountry maps
More than a Vancouver Island map, the Vancouver Island BC - Victoria & Gulf Islands Backroad Mapbook is your guide to the gems that fall off of BC's southern coast. Most adventurers begin their journey to the islands courtesy of the BC ferries. Departing the mainland, a majestic world unfolds along the Strait of Georgia, from the smattering of islands including Gabriola Island, North and South Pender Islands and Saltspring Island, to Vancouver Island, a world unto its own and home to the province's capital city of Victoria, BC.
Vancouver Island rises from the Pacific Ocean like a lush kingdom straight out of a storybook. Replete with rainforests, mountains, lakes and, of course, beaches, the Island teems with life. From the artisanal culture of Victoria, BC with a quiet appreciation for the city's heritage sites, to the wild and wet coasts alive with natural phenomena like winter storms, to snow-capped peaks and deep, warm lakes, Vancouver Island keeps those ferries full of curious adventurers year-round. There is no shortage of things to do on the Island, and your Vancouver Island BC - Victoria & Gulf Islands Backroad Mapbook has everything you need to find your way.
