Come visit a Qualicum Beach favourite!

The East coast of Vancouver Island offers great opportunities for locals and tourists to get into the trails or onto the water. There are dozens of easily accessible networks that range from wheelchair friendly surfaces to strenuous mountain hikes. Outsider has played a part in helping thousands of people safely enjoy this beautiful environment. We spend hundreds of hours every year leading activities on mountains, roads and trails, as well as in or  on the water.
