As soon as you hop on the ferry from West Vancouver, you'll notice the landscape grow wilder with every kilometer travelled. Wether you are wandering through centuries old trees, breathing in the sea air along the sprawling sandy shore, sharing a meal of traditionally cedar-baked salmon, catching a wave in company of your gal pals, you'll feel a connection to this ancient territory.
