Staying 7 nights total on Vancouver Island, flying in late to Victoria on June 24. Never been here and wondering where to stay. Thinking of splitting trip up with 2 locations, staying perhaps on west side and then (what looks like the quieter east side.)
Not sure what all to see and do and where we should stay to see the sights. Like to be out in nature, kayak, hike a little, sit and stare at the views. Do not want to do a ton of driving but want to explore island a bit. Think we should stay in Victoria a couple of nights and see the town, museums, gardens, highlights. (have not researched it much yet).
Seems there are more places to stay on east side-between Victoria and Sidney, though that Sooke area looks very relaxing. Oh, we are a couple and our 19 yr old daughter (she can sleep on a sofa bed) :D
Last minute trip planning help please!
