In recent news that we’re sure won’t shock anyone who lives here, Vancouver Island has been named the second-best island in Canada for travel, according to Travel + Leisure’s 2018 World’s Best Awards.

The annual list was compiled by the New York-based travel magazine and research firm M&RR. Approximately four million readers voted on the nominations.

According to Travel + Leisure, “Vancouver Island embodies the best of leisure activities, whether you prefer browsing in one-of-a-kind boutiques, hopping a boat for whale watching, or hiking in search of cougars, black bears, and wolves.”
