Bowen Island is the best Vancouver daytrip location I’ve explored yet. Just a 20 minute ferry ride away from the city of Vancouver, British Columbia and you will be at this gorgeous island. Bowen Island is best known for their beautiful beaches, lakes, hikes, and of course.. the restaurants.
In today’s Bowen Island travel vlog, my friend Laura Reid and I explore this beautiful Pacific Northwest island without a plan. We really wanted to see what we could come across… without any particular destination in mind. Sometimes adventuring without a plan can be a really fun and interesting way to explore somewhere new.
I get questions sometimes on my videos asking if every video location is pre-planned and organized. The answer is sometimes. When I have flown across the world and invested a lot of time and energy into a trip, I usually plan out each day so I can make sure I see the things I want to see. Within that plan, I leave room for exploring with NO plan! Those days usually end up being some of my favourites. But today, since we are so close to home, we really wanted to wander Bowen Island and ohhhh boy was it ever amazing.
In this Canadian travel vlog you will see why Bowen Island is the best daytrip to do from Vancouver. You really don’t need a plan or a map to have an incredible day. If you want to know more about what equipment I used to film this video (and all videos featured on my YouTube!) make sure you check out this blog post. I go through all the travel vlog gear I use and why.
