Located on the edge of British Columbia, Vancouver Island is rich in natural beauty and outdoor adventure. From Sooke Harbor to the historic city of Victoria, you'll find endless ways to appreciate the earth without overspending. Dine in a restaurant with its own garden, shop for anything and everything eco-friendly, and stay in a tranquil inn with a flair for the arts.
Sooke Harbor House Restaurant: With more than 200 herbs, edible flowers, and vegetables growing in its organic garden, the Sooke Harbor House has made freshness a way of life. Take a tour of the gardens to learn about organic agriculture and using an extensive compost system. Then, come enjoy sweeping views of the water as you dine on dishes made from seasonal and local ingredients.
Fiber Options: Located in Victoria, Fiber Options sells a wide range of products made from sustainable natural resources, including hemp household items, organic cotton clothing, and tree-free paper. Here, you will find environmentally friendly options to fit almost any need, such as candles, bath salts, twine, baby clothes, and tea. Products are priced accordingly, but helping preserve the natural landscape is priceless.
Dreamings, The Elements Bed and Breakfast: Surrounded by the East Sooke Regional Park, Dreamings, The Elements B&B is the perfect place to return to nature. The inn doubles as a gallery, with Inuit, First Nation, and Canadian artwork found throughout the property. The innkeepers also strive to preserve the natural area by using recycled and eco-friendly products and cooking with only organic ingredients. Come sit in the lavender rock garden and let the scenery take you away. Rooms start at $140 CAD per night, and include breakfast.
