Is Tofino the best home base to explore Vancouver Island?

Jump to last reply

Hello fodor's helpers. Is Tofino the best home base for 3 or 4 nights to explore Vancouver Island by car? We will have spent 2 or 3 nights in Victoria and will be driving to Vancouver, Jasper and Banff afterwards. We want to be in or near a town with good dining options. We are 2 active 60 year old women who plan to swim, kayak, hike, ride horses, and bike, interspersed with leisurely lunches and cocktails and fine dining at the end of the day. Also, if during our 3 weeks in Canada, we want to visit wineries and overnight nearby, would you recommend Okanagan Valley or Cowichan Valley near Victoria? Are there organized winery tours from Victoria into Cowichan Valley? (Don't want to sample wine and then drive.) Thanks in advance. I'm addicted to reading these forums -- a wealth of info!
