Vancouver Island’s Goldstream Park:

With just a five minute drive you will find wonderful hiking trails, old-growth trees, and waterfalls. There is a bird sanctuary at Goldstream Park with a bird of prey exhibit. You will experience bald eagles, and, if you visit in the fall, you will see the salmon spawning in the river that runs through the park.

Explore the splendid vineyards of the Cowichan Valley. From your Private Suite at our Vancouver Island B&B, experience bald eagles flying overhead as they dance in the sky. See distant volcanoes and each evening enjoy dazzling sunsets painted across the horizon.
