Situated less than an hour north of Victoria, British Columbia, Cowichan is a region that’s as renowned for its natural beauty and breadth of activities as it is for its culture and friendly locals.
Cowichan consists of a vast belt that extends all the way across southern Vancouver Island and features a kaleidoscope of vistas, villages and opportunities for adventure.
Cowichan is located in Canada’s only maritime Mediterranean climatic zone and is home to the warmest year–round temperatures in the country. For decades now, Cowichan has been producing amazing artisanal food and drink from the region’s burgeoning farms, wineries, cideries and distilleries. Yet, the food and drink are just the tip of the iceberg! From concerts and festivals to outdoor fun, like biking, hiking, fishing, kayaking and more, Cowichan features a long list of things to do all year round.
But what really makes this warm land live up to its name is the chill, unhurried pace and the many quiet, unspoiled spots to enjoy it in.
