From hiking through ancient old-growth forests and exploring sea caves, to kayaking and watching birds and wildlife, travel writer Allen Cox discusses the various wilderness adventures one can experience on British Columbia’s beautiful and remote Vancouver Island. Allen believes everyone should be able to enjoy the outdoors and that adventure travel should not be reserved for mountain climbers or marathon runners, and as he explains, Vancouver Island offers outdoor adventures for a variety of interests and most fitness levels.
