The Great Outdoors

The Great Outdoors, Vancouver Island BCVancouver Island, BC is a world class destination for outdoor adventures. The island offers some of the best hiking, camping, and boating on the planet. There are three reasons why Vancouver Island is so special: the amazing diversity of terrain; the climate; and the expansive wilderness.  The Valley of Trails is the epicenter of Vancouver Island outdoor adventure, because it contains all three of these features.

The Alberni Valley is framed by mountains on two sides. Mount Arrowsmith in the east and Mount Klitsa in the west are the two most prominent.  Both mountains feature amazing trails that will allow the experienced hiker to summit the mountains and enjoy the views of the valley.

Below the mountain peaks lie expansive rainforests, countless creeks, raging rivers, and the serene lakes of the Alberni Valley, not to mention the Alberni Inlet which leads to the Pacific Ocean. You can spend a day, or an entire lifetime, exploring the network of trails that run throughout the entire valley. While exploring this Vancouver Island wilderness you will undoubtedly be blessed with memorable wildlife experiences.    

Aside from hiking, the Valley of Trails is also a Vancouver Island hub for all manner of outdoor adventures. Mountain biking, horseback riding, ATVing, motocross, rock climbing, geocaching, golfing, zip-lining, kiteboarding, windsurfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, scuba diving, fishing (fresh and salt water), boating, gliding, and flying are just some of the activities you can experience at a world class level in the Alberni Valley. Whatever adventure ignites your passion, we invite you to come and experience it in the Valley of Trails!
