A capital idea from Pacific Coastal: Your Victoria vacay is just hour away

Mid-day Kelowna to Victoria flight means your Vancouver Island getaway has never been closer

Sponsored by Pacific Coastal Airlines • Impress Branded Content

A getaway to beautiful Vancouver Island has never been so easy.

Quick, convenient and affordable, with Pacific Coastal Airlines’ brand-new mid-day flight, travellers now have three weekday times to fly non-stop from Kelowna to Victoria, with multiple weekend flights to round out the options.

Climb aboard the comfortable 1900 D Beechcraft and touch down in just over an hour, airport to airport, ready for your weekend adventures.

Capital culture: With numerous historical sites, the provincial museum, thriving arts and culinary scenes and of course, gorgeous gardens, Victoria’s attractions could fill weeks of vacation. Maybe regularly scheduled “weekenders” are what’s needed to fully explore this region that’s regularly named one of the best places to visit. Pacific Coastal’s expanded flight schedule is just the ticket!

Surf, sand and sun: Who knew surf culture was so close? Hop off your Pacific Coastal morning flight and catch waves by noon on Vancouver Island’s wild west coast. Choose a slower start to your getaway with the new 3:45 p.m. flight and you’ll still get to Victoria in time for a beach picnic to plan your kayaking, windsurfing, paddleboarding and, yes, surfing adventures so popular with Islanders and their guests.

Fabulous Festivals: From Symphony Splash to the Fringe Festival, JazzFest to the Blues Bash, summer is festival season in the capital, and a chance to celebrate with both up-and-coming local talent and international stars. See what’s coming up at tourismvictoria.com.

Coastal escape: With its stellar ocean-front location, it’s no wonder Victoria’s West Coast setting figures prominently in its unique spa offerings. Enjoy the benefits of seaside mineral baths, seaweed wraps, salt scrubs and other luxurious delights at its world-class retreats.

Get busy on the links or trails: With ocean-front links and mountain courses with expansive views across the city skyline, no wonder Victoria is the gateway to the Vancouver Island Golf Trail, 250 kilometres of Pacific golfing paradise. Prefer two-wheel thrills? Forested terrain to suit all skill levels, family-friendly trails, jump parks and more make this a top destination for those who like to get busy on their getaways.
