Experience Why Canada is one of the World’s Happiest Countries

 In Activities, Beaches

Did you know that Canada was named one of the top ten happiest countries in the world? The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network published the 2019 World Happiness Report earlier this year and Canada came in at number 9. According to a recent article in Conde Nast Traveler, one of the biggest reasons for Canada’s rank is its citizens sense of freedom to make their own choices.

There’s no shortage of choices when it comes to how you spend your time in Parksville. Here is a sampling of activities to choose from in the area:

  • Horne Lake Caves: the hidden gems of Vancouver Island! Adventures range from mild to wild with guided tours of the cave systems year round.
  • WildPlay: cross an item off your bucket list by going bungy jumping! WildPlay also offers ziplines, and a variety of other activities if jumping off a bridge isn’t quite your speed.
  • Rathtrevor Beach: we have front row seats to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Pack a picnic for the family, or stroll the kilometres long stretch of sand.

Whether you’re an adventurer at heart, a beach comber, or prefer to stay closer to your home away from home, you’re sure to discover our nation’s happiness and sense of freedom during your stay at Ocean Trails!
