The Vancouver Island region is best experienced out of doors. So much of it is protected, unspoiled wilderness that any visit here would be incomplete without an excursion to at least one park or nature reserve. Right accross the strait we have East Sooke Park full of trails with beach access, picnic areas and easy terrain for a visitor at any age.
Wildlife flourishes in abundance, making birding, whale watching and salmon fishing extremely popular pursuits for visitors and locals alike. Birders can check hundreds of species off their lists. Whale watchers regularly sight Orcas, humpbacks, greys and minkes. Anglers fish for all five species of Pacific salmon. Take a salmon charter and ask our chefs to prepare your catch for dinner, they will be happy to cook or even smoke your fish for you.
There is almost any kind of outdoor fun in the region – golfing, hiking, biking, kayaking, camping, swimming and picnicking – and plenty to do indoors as well. Visit museums and heritage sites of Victoria, enjoy live theatre, browse art galleries, tour vineyards or stay indoors and be pampered in your room with our spa services.
