Tours are small and consist of 1 guide and up to 6 guests. The guide will adapt the hiking pace to suit the guest's abilities for a fully enjoyable experience. This allows our guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in their surroundings and connect with nature. Rainforest Tours provides a pickup and drop off service from 812 Wharf St in Victoria. Located in downtown Victoria. Or, 6715 Eustace Rd, Sooke. Located in downtown Sooke. We have backpacks, plenty of water and a delicious lunch of a roast chicken or vegetarian sandwich for you to choose from. While hiking through the trails, I will point out some of the local flora and fauna and speak to some of the medicinal uses by the local First Nations.

    East Sooke Regional Park
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    East Sooke Park is one of the most picturesque regional parks on Vancouver Island. The park is a beautiful landscape along the seaside with amazing coastal bluffs. There is a 3 km, 6 km, or 10 km hike at this location. This full day will begin with a 30-minute drive from Victoria or a 15-minute drive from Sooke. The destination has scenic coastal views overlooking the ocean toward the Olympic mountains. We will follow the coastline, hiking through western red cedar, douglas fir, and arbutus trees. There are lots of opportunities to stop and enjoy the view with beaches to explore and a good probability of wildlife spotting. We customize the hike based on the group and hike as little or as much as you would like. If time permits, we will drive 10-minutes from the first destination to another trail. This trail will lead you under the canopy of mature western red cedars, sitka spruce, and douglas fir trees ranging from 100 to 200 years old. This is a very flat trail with easy walking for a cool down to the day's adventures.

We were lucky enough to be here for hawk watch weekend. We are keen birdwatchers and saw the spectacle of dozens of vultures massing up in the sky. Plus local groups of birders about for hawk migration. Great walking along the coast and to the point. But get there early for a

The first stop at Whiffin Spit Park had us seeing seals, otters, bald eagles, a pair of great blue herons and an amazing assortment of goodies in the tide pools along the beach. A quick trip through Sooke Harbour House Hotel offered us a glimpse of the work of local artists and
