Kings Peak is a 20km round trip hike in Strathcona Park on Vancouver Island. It is one of the tallest peaks in the park with 1800m elevation gain and the hike to reach the summit is grueling. The hiking trail begins in lush forest and ends with a scramble to breathtaking views at the summit!

Located just 2km from downtown Campbell River, Elk Falls is a quick and easy must do hike. The 25-meter-high waterfall can be viewed from various points including a suspension bridge that crosses above the falls. We recommend doing the full loop past Moose Falls, Deer Falls, and Elk Falls.

The Little Huson Caves on Vancouver Island are a hidden, off the beaten path, gem! There’s a super easy trail to reach the caves and from there it’s a self-guided adventure through multiple series of caves. Don’t forget your headlamps!

North Coast Trail is a great way to experience the beauty of Vancouver Island’s off the beaten path northern coast. Most hikers take a water taxi in and spend 4-7 days hiking the 58km coast one way. Unfortunately, due to the Covid travel complications, we had to do an out and back hike. Although we didn’t see the whole North Coast we definitely got a taste of what it has to offer!
