We are four adults planning a vacation flying into Victoria B.C.in early October 2009 and staying for about 4 days on the island and using a rental car to get around. I would appreciate any advice on places to stay (affordable-not looking for fancy - b&b's preferred) and the best things to see. We all tend to like outdoor stuff i.e. whale watching, hiking etc as opposed to museums.
What kind of weather can we hope for in early October?
Also any advice on what to stop and see and where to stay between Vancouver and Calgary (second leg of trip) would be appreciated as well as.
