[CLOSED] Stotan Falls looks as though it has been plucked from a tropical location and dropped onto Vancouver Island. This section of the Puntledge River is a great option to spend a hot summer day, swimming in the mellow currents, jumping from waterfalls, exploring behind waterfalls, and lounging in the river kettles.
How to get there
From Vancouver you take a ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo (1 hour 45 mins) and from Nanaimo it’s about a 1.5-hour drive north. It’s near the town of Courtenay in the Comox Valley which in itself is a great place to explore. From Nanaimo make your way to the Inland Island Highway (BC-19 N) and drive about 100km to the Cumberland/Courtenay/Comox exit. Here’s a Google Map for Stotan Falls that will lead you right to the spot.
