BC's Trans-Canada Highway Route: the #1 highway between Victoria and Nanaimo

BC Ferries connects Vancouer Island at Nanaimo and at Sidney

Why Travel between Victoria and Nanaimo?

Victoria is the western end of the Trans-Canada, and once you leave this relaxed low-density community, you drive over the Malahat Highlands, with it heavily forested areas and then through coastal lowlands with wineries and farms, and the pretty towns of Chemainus, Duncan, and Ladysmith, before ending up at the ferry terminus to the mainland in Nanaimo.

Here is the itinerary for the 142 km along the #1 highway between Victoria and Nanaimo (heading eastbound on the Trans-Canada):

This stretch of the highway is the western-most segment of the Trans-Canada, though some will argue the highway ends in Tofino (as was the original intent back in 1912) on the Pacific Coast, rather than British Columbia's capital city of Victoria as highway planners in the 1950s had decided.

From Victoria, the highway rises winds its way though a city founded for its strategic command of the mouth of the Fraser River. The road rises and falls gently and travels through several municipalities that form "Greater Victoria". You will see magnificent oak trees that thrive in this moist temperate climate.

Butchart Gardens in beautiful Brentwood Bay Once you leave the urban/suburban areas the highway climbs over the rugged Malahat highlands, made up of volcanic rock covered by 400 year old Douglas fir trees that in colonial days were common all around Victoria. The rivers in this area have gravel beds, left behind from early glaciers and subsequent erosion, most noticeably the Goldstream River, are home to thousands of salmon.

The Malahat Summit provides a number of stunning vantage points for viewing the Saanich Inlet, which is a backwards fjord, facing into the direction of the glacial flow. Along powerline cuts, you will spot colourful Scotch broom flowering shrubs that show their full glory in early summer.

Nanaimo sign on the Island Highway The Coast Lowlands between Mill Bay (with a ferry to/from Brentwood Bay) north to Nanaimo. The highways climbs up and down gentle slopes passing the towns of Chemainus, Duncan, and Ladysmith, are in the "rain shadow" of the mountainous spine of Vancouver Island. Because most of the moisture that clouds have absorbed over the Pacific ocean falls as rain when they climb the west slope of the mountains, the east slopes are mostly sunny in summer.

The valleys have lush farmlands (many with two crops a year), tree farms and orchards, and the rivers are home to Steelhead trout of up to a metre in length. Forests in this area tend to be "second growth", having grown since the original forests were harvested. The area is home to several wineries, and the towns are home to several craft beweries

Nanaimo is a small city, the gateway to the north end of the Island. This city is a popular retirement capital for those who have lived their lives in the harsher Canadian winters on the prairies.

You can also head west to Port Alberni and Tofino which is gateway to Pacific Rim National Park
