With stunning landscapes, small town vibes, and mild weather year-round, Vancouver Island is just a hop, skip and a jump from Vancouver BC. In fact, it only takes a couple of hours to get there from downtown Vancouver. As per usual, we didn’t have much time to explore Vancouver Island proper, so settled on a few days in its capital, Victoria.
I would sum Victoria up as a quaint harbour town, with its heritage buildings, rugged coastline, and natural beauty. Although, step back from the harbour a bit, and you’ll find a bustling city with all the trappings of modern life.
It’s like a little slice of Britain on the edge of Canada. What could be more perfect?
