The Great Outdoors

outdoor1Seeking adventure? Southern Vancouver Island offers some of the best whale-watching, diving, surfing, salmon fishing, biking and hiking trails on the West Coast. Hire a fishing charter or take in a round of golf. There are miles of trails for hiking, cycling, or horseback riding. Our ocean beaches are great places to beachcomb and shift the rocks to search for crabs and sculpins. Try windsurfing or kayaking or take a relaxing swim in Elk Lake, Beaver Lake or Matheson Lake

The Galloping Goose Trail is one of Canada´s first rails-trails parks. Formerly a rail line, it covers 55 kilometres for cycling, walking or even horseback treks. The many miles of oceanfront walkways reaching right into town and far beyond lure visitors and locals alike to experience our gentle west-coast lifestyle.

Victoria´s outdoor attractions include Fisgard Lighthouse at Fort Rodd Hill, the first lighthouse to be constructed on Canada´s west coast, and Hatley Castle situated on the grounds of Royal Roads University. Just offshore lies “Race Rocks”, Canada´s first Marine Protected Area. Rich in marine life such as whales, sea lions, seals, birds and a wide array of underwater plants and animals, this area offers spectacular diving and a fascinating cultural history reaching back thousands of years. Your B&B hosts can point you to many exciting outdoor activities both in and around Victoria.

However active you are, there’s a B&B to suit your style in our selection of quality accommodations.
