Things to do in South Island

The South Island invites easy spontaneity and unplanned agendas as it is packed full of attractions, tour operators and self-drive vistas and is the most populous area on Vancouver Island. Explore Victoria - the provincial capital of British Columbia and one of Canada's favourite sight-seeing cities - by foot, open air double-decker bus or by bicycle.


Hit the backroads of the Saanich Peninsula to see rolling farmland, vineyards, home studios and exquisite valley views - Mt. Newton Cross Road rates as one of the nation’s most scenic drives. And two must-sees in the South Island are the tidal pools at Western Botanical Beach and Avatar Grove’s Western red cedar and Douglas fir giant trees.
