Winter Harbour is a boardwalk community that puts visitors close to the wildlife and remoteness of northern Vancouver Island

Winter Harbour is the true “end of the road”,

 an outpost community off Quatsino Sound

 on the edge of the Pacific Ocean in remote

 northern Vancouver Island.

The village of Winter Harbour got its name

 in the 1800s, when its sheltered harbour

 became a haven for sailing ships.

Today, the docks are always busy, providing

modern recreation and commercial fishing

 boats with the same welcome respite.

 Location: Winter Harbour is located a

40-minute drive south of Holberg on

northern Vancouver Island. Highway 19,

the main highway serving Vancouver Island,

links Port Hardy with Victoria and all other

major centres on the island.

 

Other communities in the North Island,

including Coal Harbour, Holberg and

 Port Alice, are connected to Port Hardy by

well-maintained highways.

 

This boardwalk community puts visitors close

to the wildlife and remoteness of northern

Vancouver Island.

 

Winter Harbour is the perfect base for hiking

Cape Scott Provincial Park and exploring

 beaches, some just minutes from here.

 

At the northern tip of the island, a network of

publicly accessible logging roads has opened

 up wilderness areas on the west coast and

provides access to Winter Harbour.

 

Highway 19, the main highway serving

Vancouver Island, links Port Hardy with

 Victoria and all other major centres on the

island.

including Coal Harbour, Holberg and

 well-maintained highways.
