Beautiful Salt Spring Island, British Columbia is a great place to visit year round.

Every season has its charms from the spring where the blossoms and baby lambs abound to summer with our great beaches and open air famous Saturday Market and Tuesday Farmers Market, where everything is grown, baked, made or foraged on Salt Spring Island. During fall when the seasons change, join us to toast the Harvest at a food and drink event and the legendary Fall Fair. During winter’s cool embrace, we have celebrations to keep you warm including Christmas on Salt Spring and the February Festival, full of arts and culture, family events and couple’s retreats.

Salt Spring Island is truly a nature lovers’ paradise! With spectacular coastal and pastoral scenery and the moderate climate, a variety of activities can be comfortably pursued all months of the year. From leisurely walks along pristine beaches to challenging uphill hikes, the vistas, flora and fauna are always inspiring. Surrounded by miles and miles of the mainly sheltered waterways of the Pacific Ocean’s Salish Sea, this Gulf Island archipelago offers countless opportunities to explore the marine world.
