Travel + Leisure, in partnership with LifeVR, captured the picturesque Vancouver Island in 360 degrees. As part of our feature on the 2017 Destination of the Year, Canada, we take a closer look at Tofino.

Tofino is known for its temperate climate, incredible storms, and abundance of wildlife. The small district of less than 2,000 residents is wrapped in shoreline, making it one of Canada’s top destinations for water sports. It’s even home to several major surfing competitions.

If water sports aren’t your thing, there are many other ways to experience Tofino. The area is also very well known for its sophisticated food culture and dynamic art scene.

Charming, sophisticated and active, the Tofino district is one of the many gems on Vancouver Island, and a unique destination that combines luxury accommodations and adventure activities.
