Government promotes new circle route

The Pacific Marine Circle Route extends from Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, B.C. to Victoria, B.C. north westerly to Port Renfrew and easterly to Lake Cowichan and on to Duncan where it joins up withhighway 1, where you could drive north again towards the BC ferry terminals in Nanaimo.

The route averages 250km and can be divided up into smaller legs providing overnight stays between two and four days depending on your schedule. The route brags world class cottage wineries, a town full of murals, another full of native totem poles, numerous smaller circle tours off the beaten track, and many historical trails and sites of interest.

The Pacific Marine Circle Route will excite the most enthusiastic traveler with the cultural diversity of Vancouver Island. It is full of Victorian architecture, wild first growth forests, hiking trails, trophy salmon and halibut fishing, or just a gentle kayak or canoe cruise up some remote estuary or inland eco reserve. Vacation land is here like you have never seen before!
