Lots to do in the Comox Valley
The historic Filberg Lodge on Comox Harbour will captivate you with its beautifully landscaped waterfront gardens, charming Herb Gardens, and the Tla wa sints guy a las Totem Pole. Filberg Lodge hosts the annual Filberg Festival every summer on the August 1st long weekend, when hundreds of British Columbia's best artists and performers display their artwork, their crafts and their music.

A three day event held annually in the Comox Valley, the Vancouver Island Music Fest is becoming one of the premier summer music festivals in British Columbia.

The Comox Valley boasts three excellent museums

Some of the best saltwater fishing on the island, particularly for salmon, can be found in the waters of the Strait of Georgia north of the Puntledge River Estuary between Courtenay and Comox, and off of Cape Lazo, King Coho, and Bates Beach. The valley's lakes and rivers are also superb flyfishing waters.

The protected, nutrient rich waters off the east coast of Vancouver Island provide an astonishingly rich display of underwater life - scuba divers won't be disappointed!

comox valley golf courses
Golfers can tee off at their choice of 6 year-round golf courses and 3 seasonal courses.

The Comox Valley abounds with parks and beaches. Strathcona Park, Vancouver Island's largest and British Columbia's oldest, provincial park and Seal Bay Regional Nature Park to name just two.

Mt Washington skiing

The Comox Valley comes alive in winter with world-class skiing at Mt. Washington Alpine Resort, located 19 miles (31 km) west of Hwy 19 at Courtenay. Mount Washington (elevation 5,216 feet/1590 m) has long been known for having good snow conditions from early in winter to well past Easter. The snow here is often deeper than anywhere else in British Columbia, and occasionally anywhere else in the world! In 1995, Mt. Washington had more snow than any other ski resort in the world. This accounts, in part, for Mt. Washington being the second-busiest winter recreation destination in British Columbia, behind Whistler/Blackcomb. Mt Washington also provides excellent hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding in summer, or you can simply make the 40-minute trip to Mt. Washington to ride the chair lift and enjoy the wonderful views of the surrounding area.
