Day 1

place Pacific Marine Circle Route

Victoria to Sooke - Begin your journey in Victoria, BC’s capital city, with a tour of the Parliament Buildings. Sheltered from the ocean, this seaside destination boasts a mild climate with lush, green vegetation inviting residents and visitors alike to explore its many beaches and parks. Often referred to as the City of Gardens, the mild coastal climate allows blooms to spring as early as February. Sooke to Lake Cowichan - Between Jordan River and Port Renfrew, signs will guide you to campgrounds and the entry points for hikes along the 47-km/29-mi Juan de Fuca Marine Trail—good for day hikers and overnight trekkers alike. Those that want to leave the shore can book a whale watching tour to see the ocean’s most majestic creatures. Prefer fishing? Port Renfrew is an ideal base to book a trip for salt or freshwater trips, available year-round. Drive from Port Renfrew to the quaint community of Lake Cowichan. Lake Cowichan to Duncan - Travel southeast to the city of Duncan, to sip and savor from the wineries and farms surrounding the town. In Duncan, take a self-guided Totem Tour Walk before visiting the traditional buildings at the Quw’utsun’ Cultural Centre where carvers practice their trade. Take a relaxing train ride on a historic locomotive as it winds its way over a wooden trestle and around the museum grounds. Enjoy the fruits of the Cowichan at many wineries. Spend an afternoon sampling various wines in tasting rooms and shops, or take a guided tour of the wine-making facilities and vineyards. Head south on Highway 1 into the South Cowichan communities of Cobble Hill—home of BC’s first cidery—and then to Mill Bay. South Cowichan to Victoria - From the South Cowichan, you may want to stop at Bamberton and Goldstream provincial parks before continuing south to Victoria on Highway 1.
