New Adventures, New You

VANCOUVER ISLAND is often referred to the "Napa of the North", making it a great destination for wine lovers! 

Discover some of the Island's best, sampling traditional hard ciders and wines at estates nestled alongside our local country roads. The warm hospitality of the local vintners reflects the easy going island lifestyle – where they are happy to share their passion, knowledge and expertise with visitors. 

With a variety of small boutique-like producers, Victoria is famous for its locally made beers, ciders, wines and spirits. Explore the city's brewing culture, learn about the brewing process and get a behind- the-scenes look at the workings of a brewery or enjoy some of the many excellent brews with a delicious meal at one of many Victoria bistros. 

Through GLOBAL VILLAGE VICTORIA, you can enroll in a variety of English programs at the school. To have a complete Vancouver Island experience, combine it with an add-on tour to some of the unique wineries or cideries in the Cowichan Valley. Tours occur on the weekends.
