Take Vancouver Island private tours to a destination that will make all hearts soar with its spectacular landscape and views.
Located on Canada’s Pacific Coast, Vancouver city is to its right and the province of British Columbia’s capital city Victoria is on the Southern tip.
This Island in the traditional western part of Canada is becoming more and more popular as a great destination for that getaway break in recent times.
It was originally only known as the retirement hotspot for Canadians, but thanks to the likes of Colleges and University’s as well as summer season cottages, the younger generation have found this little gem of an Island.
Here, you will come across lovely beaches, hiking paths, numerous lakes, waterways, waterfalls, hills, not to mention scenic farmland and all of which will have a great private tour to help you get the most out of any trip or activity.
There are many great sights and landmarks to see on a city tour of Vancouver Island that will never disappoint.
For a reasonably small mass of land in comparison to Canada, Vancouver Island makes the most of all areas.
Victoria is especially beautiful with its boat lined Inner Harbour, buildings of incredible architecture and Old City Quarter.
There is plenty to see on any sightseeing tour here.
Then, when you leave the city's, you are spoilt for choice of places to go and things to do on a guided tour.
There are fabulous low mountains to hike or go on biking trails, relaxing lakes to fish or swim, stunning waterfalls to immerse yourself in their splendour.
With lots of great activities specially designed for children, Vancouver Island is a fantastic place to take all the family.
To visit Vancouver Island, any time of the year is a good time, but it depends on what you are looking to get from your holiday that will decide the best time for you. For skiing then January to early March has best possiblities. Spring, for guided tours of blossoming Botanic gardens, hiking and biking then April to June is best. Sunny days in July to September for outdoor festivals and wildlife. October to December for winding down on sightseeing tours
Vancouver Island is not overly expensive and you can have a great holiday without going over your budget. It is possible to get a double room in a standard hotel for $150 or if you want luxury prices can start from $250. In a local restaurant, dinner for two can cost $40 and in a fine dining restaurant $100. It really will depend on how much you are willing to spend. Sightseeing and city tours will vary throughout the year, from season to season.
Always do research about the destination you intend to travel to. Book as many private tours as possible in advance to ensure you are not disappointed upon arrival. Be aware of your location and never walk alone at nighttime in dark streets. Pickpockets are everywhere in the world so keep your money in a safe place or on your person. You may encounter scam artists looking for money to ‘get back home’, do not engage in conversation.
Thanks to the Pacific Ocean currents and protection from the mountain ranges, Vancouver Island has mild weather all year round. Temperatures during the summer stay in the mid-twenties (Celsius) and in the winter the temperatures can go as low zero (Celsius). There is always snow in the hills and mountains, but the city sees very little if any at all. However, there is a good bit of rain throughout the winter months.
