VISIT BY AIR, SEA OR LAND
Living at The Foothill
At The Foothills, we believe a true community shouldn't be gated or fenced in – it should seamlessly meld into its surroundings. That's why The Foothills was chosen to become the next legacy destination for full time recreational living.
The Foothills is nestled in Upper Lantzville, a coastal community on the east side of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada along the western shore of the Strait of Georgia and immediately north of the City of Nanaimo. Nanaimo is an 18 minute HeliJet or floatplane ride from Vancouver's down town harbor and 1:40 minutes ferry from Vancouver.
Helijet service from downtown Vancouver to Nanaimo Harbour is an affordable 18 minute flight available daily. Kids fly for free and this unique experience is for sure to leave a lasting impression.
Air Canada and WestJet both fly from Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton to the Nanaimo Airport (a 25-minute drive from The Foothills) and Comox Airport (a 60-minute drive from The Foothills). Direct flights are available on most routes.

Once you are in Metro Vancouver, catch a BC Ferries sailing from either Tsawwassen or Horseshoe Bay. Check the timing on the BC Ferries’ schedule as this will also determine which route is best for you.
Nanaimo is 1.45 to 2 hours from Victoria on the Island Highway. Once you are in Nanaimo, it is only 10 minutes to The Foothills.
