Soak Away the Stress at Bighorn Meadows Resort
There are plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with the raw, natural beauty of one of BC’s most majestic mountain settings at Bighorn Meadows Resort. Whether it’s traversing the more than 200 kilometres of trails that showcase spectacular panoramas, river valleys, lush forests and glacial peaks on foot or mountain bike, exploring the myriad sights of Kootenay National Park such as Numa Falls, Olive Lake, and the Old Coach Trail, or heading out with the family for canoeing, kayaking or zipline adventures, Bighorn Meadows has plenty of ways to get you up and reconnected with nature.
The resort also offers the perfect salve to soothe the tired, aching muscles of great explorers at the Radium Hot Springs. Situated in the idyllic Kootenay Mountain Range and surrounded by the red walls of Sinclair Canyon, this year-round destination is a welcome oasis after a day of adventure. Unlike other hot springs in BC, the waters of Radium’s two open-air, mineral-rich pools — one warmer, one cooler for refreshing, revitalizing cold dips — are uniquely odourless.
Hit the Road To Harrison Hot Springs
Is the stress of the big city taking its toll? Looking for a quick getaway with the kids, a chance to breathe in some fresh air and hit pause on the pressures of life or surprise that special someone with a last-minute romantic rendezvous? Look no further than Harrison Beach Hotel. The number one rated hotel in the area on TripAdvisor, Harrison Beach Hotel is situated in Harrison Hot Springs in the heart of the Coastal Mountain Range and just a 90-minute drive from Vancouver.
While the ‘Hot Springs’ in the name is often the main draw for many visitors, this vibrant community has plenty of reasons that make it one of the Lower Mainland’s true hidden gems. From self-guided tours showcasing the culture and history of the area via museums, farms, cheese artisans and coffee roasters, sampling farm-to-table cuisine comprising ingredients sourced from local farms, forests and pastures at cafés and restaurants to family-friendly summer fun that makes a splash at the Harrison Floating Waterpark, this is one hotel that checks all the boxes for idyllic getaways and whisks you half a world away without ever having to stray too far from home.
Attention Boaters: Sooke and Ye Shall Find
Calling all captains! Located in the secluded village of Sooke and nestled in the tranquil heart of Vancouver Island, Sooke Harbour Resort & Marina features a 114-slip marina that can easily accommodate vessels of various sizes ranging from small crafts to those up to 50 feet (15 metres). Voted as a finalist for ‘Best Boat Marina’ in the 2021 Victoria Times Colonist Readers Choice Awards, Sooke Harbour’s Marina offers salty sea captains and pleasure boaters alike easy access to the Strait of Juan de Fuca and its ample opportunities to explore the islands or cast a line for trophy salmon and halibut.
But that’s not all — as secluded as it is and close to hidden treasures like Sooke Pothole and Botanical Beach Provincial Parks, Sooke Harbour Resort & Marina is also just a half hour’s drive from downtown Victoria and its many cultural, culinary and scenic highlights, allowing guests to get away from it all and grab a breath of fresh ocean air, but also still be within striking distance of the creature comforts.
In Parksville, Life’s a Beach!
Looking for equal parts sun, sand and surf? Welcome to Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort, located in the heart of Canada’s Riviera in the picturesque hamlet of Parksville. It’s world-renowned (and rightly so!) for its 19 kilometres of pristine sandy beaches perfect for year-round beachcombing, birdwatching, frolicking in the summer waves or simply strolling hand in hand and soaking in the you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it palettes of Vancouver Island sunsets.
Get out and explore the wide expanses of Rathtrevor and Parksville Community Beaches, paved promenade and picnic areas of Qualicum Beach, or explore the beachcombing bounty offered in Lighthouse Country. Here on Vancouver Island’s eastern shore, currents and ocean floor topography combine to create wide, flat expanses of sand where low tide goes out for a full kilometre. Long summer days warm the water to as much as 20 degrees Celcius and tidal pools brim with sea stars, crabs and sand dollars.
