How it works

With a constantly growing membership base, Hike The Island is a free local hiking group on Vancouver Island (primarily Victoria). Every weekend from February through November, we organize free events. While most of our events are hikes, we have branched out in recent years to include other fun sports such as paddle boarding. Attendance is between 15 and 65 people, with an average of around 25 per hike. We also partner with other local businesses to help cross-promote brands.

Partner with us and offer a gift card or merchandise at the summit of one or more of our weekend hikes for some incredible exposure.

  • Event announced on FaceBook to all of our followers with your business name listed as the sponsor.
  • Event announced by e-mail to all of our users with your business name and optional note.
  • Event announced by text message all of our collected phones numbers with your business name.
  • Permanent "Sponsored By" name and optional note on the event page.
  • Sponsor announced, with optional message, during the event's giveaway.

Initial exposure aside, you will be hitting the key active demographic in the area, who will continue to talk about your brand. You simply don't get more targeted than we are, if you are looking for active adults. Winners are chosen by playing a game of chance at the summit, narrowing down all attendees to one final victor. This game can be custom-tailored to reflect your brand, if desired.

Most businesses to-date have issued gift cards with values of $50 or more.
