New tourism tools offered

Vancouver Island North Tourism launches a new travel planning tool.

PORT HARDY—Vancouver Island North Tourism has made it easier to discover the sights, sounds, and sample adventure itineraries to the region, with the launch of a new travel planning tool.

The interactive website, gonorthisland.com, features the Travel Planning Tool, developed to inspire potential visitors during the discovery phase of trip planning. Full-width images, optimized using principles from the Canadian Tourism Commission’s Explorer Quotient tool, fluid navigation, multiple itinerary ideas and immersive videos have been utilized to ensure travellers will want to discover more by visiting the region.

“With so much rugged, natural beauty found throughout the entire region, we felt it necessary to create a visually rich online resource for visitors to discover what we have to offer” said Joli White, Tourism Coordinator for the region. “We created 6 sample itineraries, each with multiple options for personalization, to showcase area experiences presented with stunning photography, interactive maps and a custom created video series.”

Vancouver Island North Tourism is the official source of travel information for the Vancouver Island North region including Port Hardy, Port McNeill, Port Alice, Alert Bay, Sointula, Telegraph Cove & beyond. This region is rich in cultural and adventure tourism opportunities and it wanted to create a unique way to present the available experiences to those searching for inspiring destinations.

“After visiting GoNorthIsland.com, we are confident that travellers will be inspired to get away from the screen and see this spectacular region for themselves,” said White.
