Travellers who exhibit symptoms will be prohibited from boarding planes that are destined for Canada. If they exhibit symptoms on arrival they will be referred to the Canadian Public Health Agency. Travellers who have been refused boarding in the past 14 days due to medical reasons related to COVID-19 may not enter the country. Travellers must self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival at their final destination in Canada. Travellers who disembarked from a cruise ship with a known COVID-19 outbreak like the ‘Diamond Princess’ will be required to remain in quarantine for 14 days at a location determined by the Chief Public Health Officer.. If you are looking to book a trip to Nanaimo and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about travelling during COVID-19.

Nanaimo is a pleasant coastal town on Vancouver Island, in the Canadian state of British Columbia. Offering access to the urban appeal of Vancouver and the natural beauty of the island, it is one of Canada’s finest destinations.

The Nanaimo Museum is a great place to start exploring the town, with its exhibitions about the history of coastal British Columbia, showing its Chinese, First Nations and British influences. But a walk around the central historic district is also recommended, and there are many well-restored 19th century buildings from Nanaimo’s heyday as a mining port.

Nowadays, the city is a magnet for lovers of the ocean and water sports. Every year, it plays host to the spectacle of the Dragonboat Festival, which sees crews from across the world compete, as well as a unique Bathtub Racing Festival. For visitors, there are more conventional marine activities to enjoy such as scuba diving and water skiing, along with salmon fishing on the Nanaimo River.

The city is also a great place to use as a base for outdoor camping. Not far from town, the forests of Newcastle Island are the ideal place to pitch a tent and awake in pristine natural surroundings. It’s impossible not to relax when surrounded by such natural beauty.

Natural beauty may not be Vancouver’s great appeal, but the city can easily be reached from Nanaimo, and is must-visit for any holidaymakers. With world-class restaurants, opera, casinos, night clubs, theatres and the excitement of the Canucks, the city’s ice hockey team, Vancouver is just a short boat trip from Nanaimo.

In winter, the town is also a leading skiing destination, with many of Canada’s finest slopes to be found on Vancouver Island, and no alpine sports enthusiasts will want to miss the descents at Mt Cain and Mt Washington.
