The Beautiful Comox Valley

The Comox Valley is a collection of rolling mountains, delicate alpine meadows, rushing rivers, pristine lakes, lush forests, fertile farms, incredible beaches and more than 40 green parks. This unique geography, plus a year round temperate climate, creates an exceptional location for an incredible range of year-round outdoor recreational activities.


The Valley is actually a 50km (30 Miles) stretch of lower lying land along the east coast of Vancouver Island from Fanny Bay to the sandy shores of Saratoga Beach and includes the communities of Comox, Courtenay and Cumberland. Getting to know the Comox Valley is easier than ever with direct flights to the newly expanded Comox Valley Airport. (YQQ)


The Comox Valley is also a thriving centre for arts and culture. Four major museums, live theatre, a dynamic music scene, an active artist community and year round cultural festivals and events are just a few of the many attractions the Comox Valley has to offer. The local What's On Digest is a great source for more information.


Gourmet cuisine, unique shopping experiences, galleries and eclectic coffee and tea shops line the streets of the Comox Valley’s urban centres.
