The Nanaimo 50-Kilometer Holiday
Tuesday, June 24, 2008  2:46:00 PM

With fuel prices boosting airfares and a tank of gas costing more than a hotel, itís smart to travel locally. announces the creation of the Nanaimo 50-Kilometer Holiday with seven self-guided tours within a 50-kilometer radius of Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. As gasoline prices continue to rise, vacationing locally becomes more attractive and Vancouver Island has so much to offer. The 50-Kilometer Holiday includes two walking tours within Nanaimo and five driving/bicycling tours to nearby mid-island destinations. Each tour is carefully crafted with a printable version and map which website users are invited to use on their trips.

Nanaimoís waterfront and downtown are explored on walking tours which combine historic sites with scenic beauty. Lots of inviting cafes, galleries, and shops are along the way. Cyclists and motorists will visit the cityís finest public parks on the North Nanaimo Driving Tour. South Nanaimo is largely rural with some enjoyable attractions and hiking trails. The cityís finest private art gallery is in Cedar and Canadaís best bungy jumping is at Cassidy.

Further afield, Ladysmith and Chemainus offer history, hiking, kayaking, and culture. The cruise to Thetis Island from Chemainus is a highlight. Gabriola Island has some of western Canadaís most spectacular coastal scenery, plus outstanding bicycling and the regionís top artistís colony. To the north, Parksville and Qualicum Beach have outstanding museums, gardens, parks, and galleries. The view of the Strait of Georgia from Qualicum Beach is unsurpassed. Butterflies, parrots, and wildlife are featured at world class centres in Coombs and Errington.

With so much to see and do in and around Nanaimo, itís almost a waste to spend thousands of dollars flying halfway across the world when you could have just as much fun at home. An island holiday is a hassle-free holiday with no borders to cross, no travel insurance to buy, no bookings to make, and no money to exchange. So do your part to save the planet this summer by having a 50-Kilometer Holiday.

About the 50-Kilometer Holiday
The 50-Kilometre Holiday is roughly modeled on the 100-Mile Diet, a lifestyle revolution reconnecting Canadians with their roots. By creating the tours, hopes to encourage Nanaimo residents to conserve energy and strengthen their community by traveling locally. The travel websiteís seven self-guided tours are now freely accessible online at
