Still haven’t had time to visit the best that Vancouver Island has to offer? Well no fear, there is still plenty of time to take in the sites of Parksville and Qualicum this summer. Take time to witness the beautiful landscape and rolling beaches or take part in the many exciting activities the area has to offer. Maybe you would like a good way to start your Saturday morning? Stop by the Qualicum Beach Farmers Market running 8:30 to 12:00 and taste the fresh-picked goodness and flavour of local vegetables and fruit, free range eggs, meat, cheese, seafood, baked goods, preserves and honey. Or experience the power of wildlife by attending the North Island Wildlife Recovery Center Raptor Presentations
Wednesday to Friday that showcase glove trained raptors such as Bardo the owl, Sandor the eagle or Emily the Saker Falcon. With limitless opportunities and so much to explore and experience, Parksville and Qualicum offer a retreat with a little something for everyone.
