Galiano is a beautiful place to ride but please exercise caution! There are no shoulders on our roads and we advise that you let the ferry traffic subside prior to heading up. Fuel up with an espresso at the Bowline Cafe or a snack Trincomali Bakery prior to leaving Sturdies Bay.
You can rent an electric bike right by the ferry terminal from our friends at the Galiano Electric Bike Company.
Have more than one bike in your quiver? We would recommend you bring either a gravel, cross or mountain bike. If you have something with fatter tires it is possible to link up paved roads, gravel and trails that can lead you to private beaches, beautiful forests and a few sneaky spots that you can't find on tourism maps.
Our serene shoreline is a haven for marine life and Gulf Island Kayaking is your gateway to enjoying it. The paddle to the provincial park on Wallace Island is a guest favourite. For larger groups, Ben and his son Chessi at Gulf Island Kayaking will even bring the kayaks to you.
Galiano Island features a unique and challenging 9 hole Golf Course just a 20 minute drive from Bodega. In the summer don't fear, you can buy beer from their cafe and enjoy while you play there 9 hole course, and don't worry it is encouraged rather than shunned!
Galiano has a plethora of trails from walks along the coastline, to ridgelines close to our cabin rentals to the spectacular Mount Galiano. For more information and maps, check out the Galiano Trails Society website.
Difficulty ranges from mild to moderate. For local tips, be sure to hit up our staff!
