The coastline across Southern Vancouver Island is Juan de Fuca strait, an urban bird sanctuary and a place to behold the amazing, snow-capped Olympic mountains across the water from Victoria, BC. Join me on this seaside walk. Each tour will be unique, we may stop at Mile 0, where the 8,000 KM Trans-Canada Highway begins (or ends), or walk on the Break Water wall, or see the tallest Totem Pole in the world. Wherever we explore that day, the views are breathtaking, the stories of navigation and of the island's geological history, fascinating.
Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Elizabeth then grew up in Israel and later in Toronto, Canada, where she studied literature and philosophy at York University. Her adventurous spirit landed her in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where she pursued a career growing organic produce and culinary herbs for markets and restaurants. Canada had made a lasting impression on Elizabeth and so in 2010, she decided to return and take up residence in Victoria on Vancouver Island. Enthralled by the enchanting parks, Victorian homes, waterways, and mystic forests that make up this stunning garden city, Elizabeth delved deeply into the rich history that surrounds Victoria and its outlying areas, learning the stories of the gold rush and the indigenous peoples who live in this land. Elizabeth followed her heart and became a tour guide, exploring amazing places rich with culture, nature, and wildlife, and founded EV Tours, a tour guide service of private tours on Vancouver Island. On her walking tours on HeyGo, whilst traversing a wildflower field or following a deep forest path, she relates a variety of topics that pique the mind and inspire the soul, touching on such subjects as the island's geology, mind-bending historical past, culture, and its rich horticulture tradition. Come along with Elizabeth in this renowned Canadian, Pacific North West destination for an exciting and new experience that will expand your knowledge, enrich your spirit and be just plain fun.
