Activities + Day Trips

The primary goal of our Cultural Connections Activities & Day Trips is to enhance the student experience at VIU. We seek to do this by providing opportunities for students to engage with the local community and experience cultural events, while exploring nature and connecting with peers.

Being connected, active, and engaged in the local environment is healthy. It can help with the cultural adjustment process for students who are new to Canada or new to the community.

Cowichan River Tubing

Trip Information

Cowichan River tubing is one of Vancouver Islands most popular activities during the summer time! Sit back and relax as you float down the crystal clear water! With safety in mind - we will each be rocking (wearing) a life jacket and remain together as one big group! This is an absolute Canadian summer treat! So don't miss out!
