Best Of Vancouver Island Tour Offered

Port Alberni, British Columbia – Rainbird Excursions is proud to announce a new concept in adventure tourism on Vancouver Island, a seven-day, six-night experience called “The Best of Vancouver Island”. It will be an all-inclusive escorted holiday for a maximum of 10 guests.

Almost all of the multi-day tours of Vancouver Island currently offered by large operators are based in major urban centers outside Vancouver Island. Many of them are bus tours with 30 to 40 people on the trip. In contrast, Rainbird Excursions’ owner, Sandy McRuer, is a long-time resident of Vancouver Island. He has assembled a soft adventure package that introduces the best features of Vancouver Island to first-time visitors to the island, from the beaches of the Pacific Rim to the alpine landscapes of Forbidden Plateau, and including wine-tours and marine cruises as well.

McRuer worked for many years as a professional forester before starting his latest adventure. He brings his professional knowledge, experience and approach to interpreting the natural ecosystems of the Island. “When you’re working in forestry, you cover a lot of ground,” he says, “In order to manage the forest effectively you need to understand, not only how trees grow, but also, how to identify most of the local plants, what the needs of salmon and trout are, the habits of deer, bear, elk, and a variety of birds, also what kinds of hillsides are liable to slide, and so on.” Continue Reading
