North Saanich offers sweeping views of hills and valleys, a gracious feeling of space, and a close relationship with nature.
North Saanich has mostly rolling terrain that stretches throughout its land mass. Its topography is made up of forests interspersed with farmland.

With airports near-by and access to ferries - you'll never find yourself too far away from home or adventure.
A significant portion of North Saanich is farmland with plenty going on - including various crops such as apples, cherries and hops which contribute both fresh produce and features new scenery to its otherwise residential neighborhoods.
There's something for everyone here if you're looking for an intimate coastal retreat or just want to experience everything British Columbia has to offer - golf courses, parks/forest reserves, beaches galore & so much more!
