Discover Comox Valley

From Full on Adventure to Blissful Relaxation…

The Comox Valley is Vancouver Island’s adventure and culinary destination. Picture yourself carving down an alpine ski run with an ocean view, Nordic skiing through an ancient forest, or scuba diving in crystal clear waters. You can mountain bike or hike along one of the many river systems in the area, paddle the many kilometres of stunning shorelines or tee off at one of many scenic golf courses. If festivals are the kind of fun you are looking for, the local Comox Valley festivals take place throughout the year, and celebrate everything from music and shellfish, to fine art and aviation.

The Comox Valley offers four seasons of fantastic experiences for visitors to enjoy!
