Canada's Vancouver Island is a study in contrast - your luxury accommodation contrasts with the surrounding wilderness; spotting bears and whales one moment, having high tea the next; towering forests versus manicured gardens.  Wherever you go, nature is always close at hand on this walking tour of British Columbia's largest island.  We explore Pacific Rim National Park, go bear watching, see the towering trees in Cathedral Grove, learn about edible plants and traditional medicines from a Snuneymuxw guide, visit Butchart Gardens, Victoria and several stunning provincial parks.
