Nanaimo

3.9

Harbor City

Widely regarded as one of Canada's most livable cities, Nanaimo remains both an industrial center and a tourist hub on Vancouver Island. With the second largest harbor on the island and a convenient ferry service from the mainland, the city makes an ideal base for tours of the surrounding area. For most visitors sightseeing in Nanaimo begins at the city's pedestrianized seawall, flanked by restaurants and craft shops. Travelers looking for a hit of adrenaline take a trip to Nanaimo to bungee jump, scuba dive, and hike through pristine forests and along a wild coast largely unspoiled by commercialization. Nanaimo is in Vancouver Island. Customize your holiday with our Canada itinerary planner to create an adventure that suits you.
