Turning the
Off Season On

After the busy bustle of the summer, the island takes a collective breath and returns to a slower pace.

As much as Gabriola shines in the busy season, the quiet beauty and charm of the off-season can be even more magical.

Get to know the real Gabriola by taking a class, adventuring into the rainy forest, or exploring the studios of our many artists. There is something for everyone here, and if you’d like some help deciding where to start, check out the packages we have put together, or build your own.
Gabriola awaits you!

Turning the Off Season On

You’ve seen them. The locals. They appear at the beach just as you are headed home for dinner.

After the busy bustle of the summer, the island takes a collective breath and returns to a slower pace. Islanders delve deeper into themselves, their passions, and their pursuits. If you visit in the off season, proficiency at building a fire in the wood stove is a bonus but don’t worry, you will learn. You’ll definitely need to appreciate the solitude of a quiet walk in the woods and you’ll need your gum boots and your raincoat. But if you seize the opportunity to experience our island during the late fall, winter, and early spring, you’ll find chances to know the real Gabriola at every turn.

There is something for everyone here, and the rainy season is the perfect chance to find your niche. If you want to experience all that Gabriola has to offer, but don’t quite know where to start, check out the packages we’ve put together for you. Or build your own, in the true Gabriolan DIY way. We are happy to help you get your ideal off season getaway together.

As the waves crash on the sandstone and the winds whip your hair around your face, the wonders of Gabriola will envelop you. Whether you come to Gabriola for a weekend professional retreat or a week of adventuring and gallery visiting, you’re sure to find just the thing that suits you. Gabriola welcomes you with its beauty and charm, and if you take the time, you just might start to feel like a local, too.
