Pick up is at 9 am at 812 Wharf St. in downtown Victoria or 6715 Eustace Rd, Sooke. There is a 3 km, 6 km, or 10 km coastal hike at this location. This full day will begin with a 30-minute drive from Victoria or a 15-minute drive from Sooke. The destination has scenic coastal views overlooking the ocean toward the Olympic mountains. We will follow the coastline, hiking through western red cedar, douglas fir, and arbutus trees. There are lots of opportunities to stop and enjoy the view with beaches to explore. We customize the hike based on the group and hike as little or as much as you would like. If time permits, we will drive 10-minutes from the first destination to another trail. This trail will lead you under the canopy of mature western red cedars, sitka spruce, and douglas fir trees ranging from 100 to 200 years old. This is a very flat trail with easy walking for a cool down to the day's adventures.
I have been involved in sports and outdoor activities ever since I was a teenager. After a brief stint in boxing and long-distance running, I found my true passion after moving to Vancouver Island and putting my feet to the trails. Rainforest Tours is a product of a love for those trails. The tours we offer include two of my personal favorite parks on Vancouver Island, my homes away from home. What began as a simple trip out of town every weekend to get away from the hustle of the city quickly turned into a business idea for sharing our beautiful backyard with the guests that travel here. 2020 will be 10 years serving as experts on these trails.
