One of the great things about Galiano Island is that, with a little hiking, you can get right up to the top of the island in a short time. The Garry Oak meadow high atop Mount Galiano is a breathtaking place to look out on the beautiful Southern Gulf Islands- and to get up-close and personal with the residents of one of Canada’s most endangered ecosystems. It’s more than just a hike- it’s a hands-on experience with some of the most important habitat in Canada.
