Victoria Vancouver Island Canada Inner Harbour
On various winding roads it is today enjoying the clock again. A flexible neck is handy, because sometimes you don't know where to look. On the one hand the beautiful view of the Olympic National Park and on the other the Hood Canal Dabob Bay.

We drive on the 101, the Pacific Coast Highway, which starts here and ends at the Mexican border. The medium-sized city of Port Angeles owes its fame mainly to the nearby Olympic National Park. The city is located on Olympic, a peninsula in the state of Washington. Port Angeles is named after the harbor, from which many boats leave for Victoria in Canada. It is therefore a typical fishing town, where you can also enjoy a lot of unspoilt nature.
We take the ferry to Vancouver Island through the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Victoria, the capital of the province of British Columbia, has an English appearance and claims to be more English than England. For example, red double-deckers are driving around, many tudor-style houses have been built and there are manicured gardens that have given the city the nickname 'City of Gardens'. The Butchart Gardens and Hatley Castle are examples of this.
With more than 2,200 annual sunshine hours, Victoria is one of the sunniest places in British Columbia. It is an ideal climate for many plants and flowers that thrive in the many gardens. There are many exotic plant species that hardly ever occur in the rest of Canada.

In this 4-star route you will drive along beautiful good winding roads, through beautiful surroundings, you will certainly stop 1 or more times along the Pacific Coast Highway.

History:
Before Captain James Cook discovered the coast of British Columbia in 1778, the area was populated by indigenous people, including the Salish and Songhees. Their lifestyle changed dramatically when the Spaniards and British set foot at the end of the eighteenth century. They traded in fur and set out routes from the coast to the interior, with Fort Vancouver as the main trading post. In 1843, James Douglas chose the place of the current Victoria for a new trading post on behalf of the Hudson's Bay Company.

The British took over Vancouver Island in 1849 following border negotiations with the United States and the resulting signing of the Oregon Treaty. The Crown Colony of Vancouver Island was born, with Richard Blanshard as governor. With the discovery of gold on mainland British Columbia in 1858, Victoria became an important stopping place for miners who entered the goldfields of the inland Caribbean region. 20,000 gold diggers landed in a few weeks; they ensured that Victoria could grow into a commercial center. On July 21, 1871, British Columbia became the sixth province of the Dominion of Canada, with Victoria as the provincial capital.

With the opening of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1886, Victoria lost its position as an important trading city. Vancouver took over this position and Victoria developed into a sophisticated, civilized city. This image was reinforced by the opening of the Butchart Gardens in 1904 and the construction of the Empress Hotel and Craigdarroch Castle.

The number of estates grew steadily and made a major contribution to the ultimate character of the city. Although just before the First World War, no more new estates were built, the city's growth continued. In the period of the two World Wars, more and more small villages and estates were placed under the authority of the city of Victoria.
