The Cowichan region, known as the “warm land,” is renowned for its vineyards and wineries. The Central Island includes its main hub, Nanaimo, and the oceanside communities of Parksville and Qualicum Beach. Further north, the Comox Valley, Campbell River, Gold River and Telegraph Cove offer a myriad of activities, including wildlife watching, kayaking, fishing and skiing.
