Glen Lyon Inn, Vancouver Island

Bald eagles. Great whales crashing into the mighty sea. Grizzly bears. Leaping salmon. When it comes to visitors, people are in the minority here.

When you talk about the great outdoors on Vancouver Island, the emphasis is on great. Make the Glenn Lyon Inn – one of the most revered on the entire island – the place to stay on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Canada and you will be in a prime position to make the most of it all.

You can set off in search of grizzly bears – or killer whales, porpoises, minkes and dolphins. You can fish for cod and salmon, or dive beneath the waves to discover a marine wonder world. You can hike through a national park, forests or along seemingly endless nature trails. And then you can relax in a welcoming hotel run by people who really understand the concept of helping guests enjoy every minute of their stay.
