Accommodation in the Vancouver Island Region ranges from world-class resorts, lodges and hotels that offer activity packages and gourmet dining, to wilderness campgrounds away from it all, and everything in between.
Seaside bed and breakfasts, inns and cabins in the woods provide romantic options and also cater to families. Some allow pets too. The region’s health and wellness spas provide a welcome refuge from the stresses of the daily grind.
Vacation home rentals are another excellent option, especially if visitors are looking for a place they can settle into for a week, a month, or even a season. For those travelling with backpacks, there are hostels in several Vancouver Island communities.
