BC is home to over 187 species of butterflies, more than any other province in Canada, and with all the fertile soils and committed gardeners you are sure to see your share.Oh but wait, perhaps butterflies aren’t your thing… how about wine?  Vancouver Island, and the Comox Valley have a burgeoning wine industry, so why not take a wine or meadery tour?  Perhaps go for a sail, rent a bike, hit a golf course or visit a museum, gallery or two.

There are so many festivals to take in; The Filberg, Sandcastle Festival, Campbell River Shoreline Arts Festival and so much more.  And after all that activity, you don’t want to miss going to one of the many spa’s, we recommend the Hydropath.  Of course you will want to do some shopping, make sure you take some chocolate and pastries home to The Farmhouse for later.  Finish it up with wine and award winning cheese from some of the Valley’s finest producers at home on the deck, watching the sun change to stars in this peaceful, light pollution free location.
