Just a short 30 minutes from Comox you will find world class cross-country and downhill skiing on Mount Washington offers spectacular views while hiking, zip-lining and mountain biking in the summer months. A little further up the highway is Strathcona Provincial Park where hiking in Paradise Meadows is unparalleled and the remote hike in camping in the mountains superb.


The stillness discovered while canoeing or kayaking on any of the lakes or rivers is sure to help you find that ever elusive peace. Check out Vancouver Island Visitor Centre for accommodations and information on activities to enjoy in the Comox Valley.
