From Vancouver: Malahat SkyWalk & Vancouver Island Day Trip

1. From Vancouver: Malahat SkyWalk & Vancouver Island Day Trip

Explore the highlights of British Columbia on this guided day trip. Head to Vancouver Island from Vancouver on a round-trip ferry ride, then enjoy the best the location has to offer, including the incredible Malahat SkyWalk, a tour of Merridale Cidery and Distillery, and Duncan, the City of Totems. Start the day with a 90-minute sail aboard BC Ferries while enjoying the views and the wildlife. Arrive at Vancouver Island and board a deluxe mini-coach that will take you through old-growth forests and spectacular views as you head towards Malahat Skywalk. Then immerse yourself in nature at Malahat Skywalk as you travel along the 600-meter-long elevated walkway. Follow the walkway to a 10-story spiral tower to take in the 360-degree view of the islands, inlets, fjords, and 2 countries. After enjoying the Malahat Skywalk, take some free time for lunch (own expense) in Cowichan Bay, a seaside village known for its art and floating houses. After lunch, enjoy a tour and cider tasting at Merridale Cidery and Distillery. The last stop is Duncan, known as the City of Totems. Choose whether to go on a walking tour with a guide to learn about First Nation totems, or explore on your own. Finally, return to the ferry for the journey home.

We started a sightseeing flight on 17.5.22 at noon. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. We saw the adjacent islands from above, quite nice proportions. From Nanaimo we saw the water side. Too bad we couldn't see our holiday accommodation (Hammond Bay Road) but this is around the bend which we unfortunately didn't fly over. Maybe you're not allowed to fly over the city? Unfortunately, the time passed far too quickly, but it was a really great experience. Ute and Frank from Germany wish the whole team all the best
