The island just made sense and showcases a diverse part of Canada, a town in the Yukon would the the furthest west but in the end the terrain, scenery, etc all made Van Isle the logical end point for the route. Winter Harbour is the name of town for the terminus

A bunch of debate went into this decision during the initial planning phase of the project and as the project evolved Van Isle just seemed to fall into place, in the end I believe it was the right choice
