If you love beautiful pristine scenery that beautiful Vancouver Island has to offer, then coming to our home in Nanaimo will be the first step in what could...
Where is it?
Nanaimo is a small city of approximately 100 thousand people. For many it is the gateway to the rest of the island, to the exciting and majestic beaches of Long Beach in Tofino,(famous Pacific Rim National Park) or the more quaint and tranquil beaches of Parksville, a mere 20 minute ride away.
You will find the people in Nanaimo very friendly and very helpful should you need help with directions or points of interest that you may wish to visit.
Nanaimo is a one hour and twenty minute ferry away from the beautiful city of Vancouver, which was home to the 2010 Olympics. Whistler where most of the Olympic skiing was held is 1.5 hours from Vancouver by car. Nanaimo with its central location is also a short drive to beautiful Victoria, the capital city of our province. The famed Pacific Rim National Park is a three hour drive away.
If you wish to explore further a field, there is the interior of British Columbia with its spectacular changing scenery. Overnight or weekend trips could also include visits to the states of Washington and Oregon in the USA. However if you just wish to stay on Vancouver Island there is lots to see and do.
Vancouver is also the starting port for the famous Alaskan cruises. If time allows adding a cruise to the exchange is a possibility.
