Lighthouse Country

Lighthouse Country
Horne Lake
Couples love to snuggle in this quiet corner of Vancouver Island. The communities of Qualicum Bay, Bowser and Deep Bay (just 21 kilometers past Qualicum Beach), are quiet, peaceful retreats. The area’s two scenic lighthouses stand as constant reminders about the dangers of the rugged shoreline. A handful of B&Bs, vacation homes and campgrounds offer cozy refuge here, even during the wildest winter storms.

Lighthouse Country is also home to Horne Lake featuring the world famous caves, rock climbing, and camping at the regional park. Golfers can test their game at the Arrowsmith Golf & Country Club, that can be played in about 3.5 hours.

Ever wondered how a fish hatchery works? The Big Qualicum Fish Hatchery offers a self-guided tour and trails to see the process up close. See adult chum and coho spawn in November-December; chinook in October-November; steelhead in February-March; juvenile coho year-round; chum fry in April-May; juvenile chinook February-June; and, steelhead in June-May.
