A major part of the lower central region of Vancouver Island and several Gulf Islands along the coast of British Columbia is home to the Cowichan Valley. The valley covers 3,473.12 km² (1,340.98 sq mi) with gorgeous forests, lakes, and rural communities that enjoy plenty of recreation created by the valleys natural landscape.
