Just 30 minutes by seaplane from Vancouver, Galiano Island is an ideal getaway for west coast urbanites hungry for outdoor adventure.
Canadian Geographic Travel sent photographer Jake Graham to explore this gem of the Southern Gulf Islands with Canada Goose. There, he discovered uncrowded, well-maintained hiking trails, friendly locals, unique dining experiences and endless opportunities to photograph breathtaking coastal landscapes and wildlife. The only negative? Having to say goodbye and head back to the mainland.
Here’s a look at what you can expect on your own weekend getaway to Galiano Island.
