An RV holiday is a wonderous adventure—but like all good adventures, you need to plan and prepare beforehand! Here’s our essential guide to what you need to know before renting an RV and embarking on your journey.
With one of the most mild climates in Canada, even Victoria's "chilly" winter months have plenty of outdoor and indoor activities for all ages to take part in. Here we've collected a list of some of the most popular places and events in the city for you to explore during the winter — let us know which ones are your favourites!
There is a magic to finding that perfect vacation spot — somewhere where time seems to fly by, where each day brings something new and exciting, and when the times comes to leave, you wish you could stay and enjoy more new experiences! For many of the visitors who come to our RV haven that place is Vancouver Island. And it’s easy to understand why.
Vancouver Island is the ideal destination for any traveller, with a plethora of destinations showcasing natural beauty, adrenaline-pumping activities, delicious food, culture, and more. With that in mind, here are few of our favourite destinations and experiences on Vancouver Island:
There is nothing else quite like the freedom of getting out onto the open road for an RV adventure — the thrill of the great outdoors, the chance to follow your own path, the sense of discovery and wonder. Equally, in terms of the perfect RV destination, there is only one winner — the Canadian Pacific Northwest. Somewhere that truly has everything you’re looking for in an RV destination, whether you’re travelling from the U.S, inside Canada, or further afield.
We always like to keep our customers up to date with the latest happenings in and around Victoria — especially if it’s going to affect their motorhome vacations! And we have two updates this August when it comes to some new regulations and exciting new opportunities for cycling around Victoria.
And on Saturday September 7, we will be holding our Annual Customer Appreciation Day, from about noon to 6-7pm. There will be live music (a jazz band, Irish folk band, etc.), the Songhees food truck, and the Esquimalt and Songhees dance groups will be coming to perform. Everyone in the park is welcome, and local residents can come as well even if they don't have a site booked
There is nothing quite like being out on the open road, the thrill of adventure and the liberating journey. But, there are still home comforts that we all miss when we’re away. Perhaps the biggest of these are the delights of a home-cooked meal. However, you don't have to miss out, as cooking and eating when you’re on your RV holiday can be just as gratifying and enjoyable as it is at home. All it takes is some careful preparation and planning, the right equipment, and a willingness to be creative! To help get you started we’ve put together some of our top tips and strategies for making the most of your RV cooking experience.
When you want to experience the beauty, serenity, and culture of Canada’s famed West Coast, there is no better way to do it than taking an RV to some of its most well-regarded spots, including our own haven here on the Salish shore.
But, if you don’t already own an RV, then there’s still one issue that needs to be settled— To Buy Or Not To Buy?
When it comes to whether to rent or buy your RV, there is no one way of looking at it. You’ll have to weigh your needs and find the answer that’s right for you. To help you make up your mind, we’ve outlined some of the key pros and cons when it comes to buying and renting RVs in Canada.
Autumn has just started to set in, but it's already time for rig owners to start thinking about Christmas in Victoria BC. The city's mild weather, lack of snow and ice, and festive celebrations makes it a popular destination for the holiday season, and RV parks sell out fast — we're already starting to see December bookings.
If you're considering a Christmas RV booking of your own, we've collected some of the upcoming Victoria holiday events you can look forward to, including parades, markets, concerts, movies and tours. When November rolls around, don't forget to pop into local coffee shops and restaurants as well and ask about their Christmas specials.
Summer months and holidays are some of the best times to visit family and friends, especially on Vancouver Island! And when it comes to accommodations, many family members know that motorhomes are the way to go. Bringing an RV and reserving a space in a park keeps your amenities, belongings, and personalized space with you. It also means no hotel fees, no parking in driveways or along curbs, no sleeping on couches or guest beds, and no sharing groceries — or bathrooms.
But one question we often get is: How do you get a motorhome to Victoria, which is on an island? It's easier than you think, whether you're coming from the BC mainland or the United States.
