Vancouver Island

ESPAÑOL

A prodigality of forests, that is this island, the largest from the coast of America till New Zealand, with a size similar to Belgium or Sicily, and in which no more vegetation can grow, from low ferns to very high centenarian conifers. So much that pines spill over the Pacific Ocean along its south and west coast, forming a beautiful landscape of trees on cliffs at sea level and rain forest mix with red cedars over 70 meters high. The interior is drier, but that’s no reason to think the forests are less attractive, with even higher conifers, lakes and mountains more than 2000 meters high in the Strathcona Provincial Park. The north, further away and unexplored, is ideal for those who seek nature in its purest form without getting too far away from civilization. The possibilities of hiking or biking are countless and you’ll find yourself thinking that, if there are so many trees on this island, how many there will be in all of Canada.
