From the nature views of mountain in the middle of the islands and to the waterfalls and lakes in the north, nature here is endless.
In the southeast tip of the island is the large city and the capital of British Columbia, Victoria. This is a place surrounded by nature. About half of the island's population lives in Victoria, the population totals 750,000 residents.
There are a number of smaller towns around the island, like Nanaimo, Port Alberni, Parksville, Courtenay, and Campbell River.
Strathcona Park, at the center of the island, spreads on about 2,500 square kilometers, and the middle is a snow-capped mountain range, throughout the whole year. These mountains are also the highest points of the island, like the top peak that reaches a height of 2,195 meters above sea level.
On the eastern side of Vancouver Island is another island discovered by George Vancouver, called Discovery Island.
