The Great Outdoors

The Gowlland Tod Provincial Park is one of the only remaining preserved natural areas in the Greater Victoria area. Gorgeous views of the water, wildflowers in the spring, and a lively wildlife habitat grace the rocky hills of Gowlland Tod. With over 25 kilometers of trails, theres something for every level. Stroll through a wooded path alongside rushing waterfalls towards the secluded and picturesque Tod inlet, which is often filled with beautiful sailboats and wildlife. Hike or bike up Mount Work and you’ll be rewarded by some of the most stunning views of the area’s rolling mountains and winding waterways. Take a walk down to Mackenzie Bight where you’ll find a rocky and secluded beach surrounded by a lush forest, or head to Durrance Lake for some warm summertime swimming, hiking and even fishing.For those looking to get away from the city and experience the abundant fauna and flora of Vancouver Island, take a trip to the Gowlland Tod Provincial Park.
