Vancouver Island is rife with top Canadian travel experiences but this guided tour of Vancouver Island ticks a lot of the boxes off in one go.  Join FML Adventures on the ultimate trip, exploring Vancouver Island and all it has to offer. 

You’ll be hiking through rain forests to secret beaches, standing in sea caves, floating in crystal clear swim holes and that’s barely scratching the surface.  Try surfing, relax on countless beaches, and float on a warm, pristine lake in true Island style. 

Stay in wild campgrounds and a fun hostel while hanging with your crew of new friends and sharing life changing experiences together.  This Vancouver Island tour really packs it in and keeps you off the beaten paths on real adventures the locals would do.
