The Alberni Valley

Whether you love getting back to nature, fishing all day, or being part of a strong community, the Alberni Valley is the best place on Vancouver Island to adventure the way you want.

We have Della Falls, the highest waterfall in Canada, and Mt. Arrowsmith, the highest mountain on southern Vancouver Island. We have the only quarter-mile drag strip on Vancouver Island (our Thunder in the Valley Drag Race is an event for everyone, even if you’re not a car nut), and we’re the only city in B.C. to host all four B.C. Games: Winter, Summer, Seniors, and Athletes with Disabilities. The first Old Age Pension cheque was given here in 1927, and we’re the birthplace of Kim Campbell, Canada’s first female prime minister.

Choose the Alberni Valley for your next adventure to connect with everything you love about Vancouver Island.
