Mountain Biking

One of BC’s Best Mountain Bike Destinations!

The Comox Valley’s extensive mountain bike trails draw riders from near and far. At the Mount Washington Alpine Resort’s Bike Park, riders can choose from a range of epic expert runs to easy beginner trails. The trail network is surrounded by massive forests and offers masterfully-crafted trails for all abilities.


The Comox Valley is one of the most beautiful settings in the world for outdoor recreation, and when you consider the amount of water surrounding us, it’s no wonder that the sport of sailing attracts so many enthusiasts to our area. Whether you want to learn to sail with Compass Adventures, or charter your own sailboat and enjoy an afternoon on the water with Desolation Sound Yacht Charters, the Vancouver Island Visitor Centre can help you plan your day on the sea.


Scenic Chairlift

Hop aboard the Scenic Chairlift ride at Mount Washington Alpine Resort and take in the stunning views of the Salish Seas and Strathcona Park. The Scenic Chairlift ride is an adventure for every member of the family.


If you are a diving enthusiast, then the Comox Valley is the place for you. Dive with Six Gill Sharks off Hornby Island in the Summer, take a beach dive off Singing Sands Beach to a 70 foot sailboard wreck that is home to huge lingcod, octopus, rockfish and even an occasional lumpsucker. You can even learn to dive from one of the many dive shops in the area.

Kayak, SUP Rentals

A great way to explore the many rivers, lakes and the ocean bays is by Kayak, Canoe or SUP where you can quietly glide along sighting wildlife such as deer, seals, various birds and other wildlife. If you don’t have your own, you can easily rent one or take a guided tour from one of our many shops.
