Ensuring that travel is a
force for good. Forever.
GILAKAS’LA, ‘UY’ SKWEYUL | WELCOME TO 4VI
Our roots are on Vancouver Island. Our reach is global.
To ensure travel is a force for good means providing the opportunity for everyone of all abilities to experience the beauty of this world. Our commitment to accessible travel is a vital pillar of our work.
To preserve the place we call home for future generations, we actively support climate action in tourism. As proud signatories of the Glasgow Declaration, our goal is to reach net zero emissions.
The Responsible Tourism Institute’s Biosphere certification has designated Vancouver Island Region as a sustainable destination. This certification reflects our commitment to all 17 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Our island home is surrounded by beautiful waters that we are dedicated to protecting. We support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 14, known as Life Below Water, to ensure cleaner oceans for us all.
