We bet you’ve never seen Vancouver Island like this.

Gunter Kiphard, a German traveller and videographer, made a trip from Frankfurt to Vancouver Island this summer; lucky for us, he captured all of its beauty in stunning high definition.

In the video’s opening narration, Kiphard describes a “faraway island” with “ragged mountains and rocks” and a “wild and stormy Pacific Ocean.”

“I experience the beauty this world has to offer like I never did before,” he says.

The video includes drone footage of Ucluelet and Tofino, as well as up-close footage of orcas and humpback whales.

Watch the entire video below:

Based on the title, it seems like we can expect a second video documenting the rest of Kiphard’s trip to Vancouver Island soon!
