Relax in our lounge after a day of watching whales or storms (or probably both) or pick the brains of the staff who are more than happy to help you plot your next coastal adventure.

While those of you on the East Coast are buried under blankets , jackets, and mountains of snow...the west coast of Canada is enjoying an even milder winter than normal (think 15 degrees and sunny in the middle of February). Although we hate rubbing it in, (really!) we’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to escape the deep freeze of winter, and head west – far west – to visit some of the best BC has to offer; and explore Vancouver Island.

Great Canadian Road Trip Tips

HI hostels  are all over the country at ideal stopping points. With a hostel, you’ll get a comfy place to sleep, kitchen facilities to help you feed yourself while sticking to a budget, hot showers and you’ll still get to meet other backpackers along the way (and maybe pick up a new passenger), which is a heck of a lot better than trying to sleep in your car.
