Where to Stay
... before and after your tourHotel Zed and Accent Inns are Victoria's homegrown, funky and eco-friendly motels, offering affordable, spacious and very well-appointed rooms close to downtown.
Trek & Treats hikers can leave their car at either location during their tour. If traveling as a foot passengers from the US, get picked up at the Seattle and Port Angeles ferries. And for your exploration of the city of Victoria, make use of courtesy bicycles or the colourful shuttle bus!
Let us book you stay before or after your hike as part of your tour.
Alternatively, we can make arrangements for you to at the harbourfront
Spinnakers' Gastro Brewpub and Heritage Guesthouse,
or at the upscale and central Magnolia Hotel.
Ask us at the time of booking your tour!
Sidney by the SeaSidney is a lovely and vibrant waterfront community on the Saanich Peninsula, about 20 km from Victoria, and it is the starting point of the Salish Shores Discovery Trail.
It is close to the international airport, the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal (ferries from Vancouver) and the Anacortes Ferry. (More on how to get here....)
We would be pleased to make arrangements for you at The Beacon Inn, a favourite stay with our hikers!
