Victoria and Vancouver Island Sights


Port Renfrew Review

About 67 miles from Victoria, this tiny fishing village has national and regional parks in all directions. At the end of Highway 14 you'll find the grueling West Coast Trail and the more accessible but still daunting Juan de Fuca Marine Trail. Salmon fishing is also a big reason for visiting the area. Resources include a general store, a pub, restaurants, a motel, B&Bs, and a range of rustic cabins. There's no garage in town, but gas is usually available at the marina (it's best to play it safe and fill up your tank before leaving Sooke). From Port Renfrew, a 30-mile paved back road leads inland to Lake Cowichan in the Cowichan Valley.
