Visitors to the region will enjoy the spirit of adventure as they explore the West Coast temperate rain forests, mountains, wetlands and marine environments of the Cowichan Valley. We are strategically located at the gateway to the majestic landscape of Carmanah-Walbran and the Juan de Fuca marine trail, as well as the spectacular rugged terrain of the world-renowned West Coast Trail.
