“Drive the Pacific Marine Circle Route, a loop starting and ending in Victoria on the southern end of Vancouver Island.

This British Columbia road trip takes you through the Cowichan Valley, which is a growing wine-producing region, through old-growth rain forest where you can find Canada’s “gnarliest tree,” and along the island’s south coast, where the views of the ocean and across to Washington’s Olympic Peninsula pop out through the trees.

While it’s possible to pack this 185-mile (300-kilometer) island road trip into one very long day, it’s far more relaxing if you have at least two or three days to explore. A delicious stopover point, for both food and overnight lodging, is the Farm Table Inn, located off Highway 18, between the towns of Duncan and Lake Cowichan.”
