When embarking on a road trip to Vancouver Island, you will pass through charming towns, beaches, waterfalls, natural environments, and unique attractions.
Vancouver has multiple transportation options, including ferry, plane, seaplane, bus, or car.
If you are looking to see more of the island than just Victoria, you will want to either rent a car in Vancouver and drive it across on the ferry, or rent a car at Victoria International Airport.
Summer (June to August): This is the peak tourist season as the weather is warm and ideal for outdoor activities like visiting the beach, hiking, water sports such as kayaking and surfing, and wildlife viewing.
Most travellers choose to take a more relaxed itinerary and take their time and spend up to 7 days enjoying the journey and all the attractions and scenic spots that the island has to offer.
You can explore the downtown core and check out the cool architectural buildings, and you may even choose to take a free guided tour of the British Columbia Parliament buildings.
If you enjoy tea and have time, you may partake in High Tea at the Fairmont Empress Hotel, a historic icon of Victoria that serves over 21 different teas in its Lobby Lounge.
