Vancouver Island is officially the second-best island in Canada for travel


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.”

In its travel guide, the magazine mentions the Island’s hiking trails, wineries, and ski hills as prime attractions for tourists. More locally, the magazine also gives a shoutout to Victoria’s own Empress Hotel and Inner Harbour.

The top three islands in Canada were ranked as follows:

3. Prince Edward Island
2. Vancouver Island, British Columbia
1. Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
