Tofino / Ucluelet vs. Campbell River for 5-6 nights?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning to hike the West Coast Trail with a friend in early August. My wife, who is smarter than me and no longer engages in such activities, might fly up to join me after the hike and we'd spend a week to 10 days on Vancouver Island.

She is 20 years in the Master Gardener program in Colorado and visiting Butchart Gardens has been on her bucket list for a long time. I figure we'd spend 3-4 days around Victoria, then 5-6 days someplace else.

Our style is we like to get to one place and spend a long time there, we dislike the being in transit part of travel. We'd do some minor hikes, beach combing, wildlife viewing, bird watching. We can spend hours and hours at one tide pool, grove of trees, or scenic vista without getting bored. We like a good beer or glass of wine and light meal in a local pub, but don't need fine dining or shopping.

From what I've seen online Ucluelet or Campbell River seem to be good options. I'm thinking I can't go wrong with either one, but am open to suggestions on these or other places.

Thanks.
