A Trail for the Sweet Tooth

By Linda Tancs

The Nanaimo bar is a popular Canadian dessert, named after its place of origin on Vancouver Island. The tasty, multilayered treat requires no baking and generally comprises a crumb base, custard and ganache. Its variations, though, are so numerous among purveyors that a trail has developed around it. The Nanaimo Bar Trail is a self-guided tour of over 30 scrumptious stops from Lantzville in the north to Cedar in the south and including a stop on Gabriola Island. Pick up your map at the Nanaimo Visitor Centre on Northfield Road.


As coronavirus proceeds, it is likely that the vast majority of us will be limited in our travels. But this, too, shall pass. Our love for travel remains, so Travelrific will continue offering travel inspiration in this medium. Please keep those affected by the virus in your thoughts and be sure to follow the safety practices advocated by the Centers for Disease Control. Stay safe, and be well.
