Adventure Clothing

Adventure Clothing is a travel store located in the heart of Downtown Victoria at 560 Yates St. They specialize in high quality, low-environmental impact travel accessories, clothing, and luggage. With everything from packing cubes, to compression socks, to the best carry-ons for travelling lightly, Adventure Clothing truly is a one-stop shop for all things travel. We spoke with Jennifer Robinson, the owner of Adventure Clothing, to learn more about her store and how her and her staff serve their customers. 

What is Adventure Clothing and what do you provide? 

“Adventure Clothing really is a travel store. You can book your trip, you can come visit us in store, and you can go directly to the airport and take off anywhere in the world, because we have it all.” 

Jen explains that there is a three-part mission at Adventure Clothing: 

“My focus is to travel light with carry-ons, to travel lightly—with a light footprint on the environment—and to travel well. So I hunt out ethically sourced products with environmentally friendly practices, and quality merchandise that you don’t have to keep buying over and over. Which helps your pocketbook, and also the environment. So many of the products that I carry have lifetime warranties, and all my companies stand behind their brands.” 

The location of Adventure Clothing on lower Yates street is also a stand-out feature. 

“We have such a gorgeous building too—we’re in the Oriental, which is a historic building that was refitted and seismically upgraded in 2011. It’s just rich with culture and heritage.” 

What is the history behind Adventure Clothing and how did you get started with the business? 

“Adventure Clothing’s original owner was Sean Thompson of W&J Wilson family owned stores. He branched out many years ago—probably over 20 years ago—with Tilley products as his main focus. About 8 or 9 years ago I started to manage his store for him. A series of events, COVID, and changes of direction led me to purchase the store in September 2021. While it’s been a rocky start with more COVID issues, people are raring to go travelling and are excited to enjoy their travels.” 

Do you have any favourite memories as a business owner? 

“Honestly, the best part is the customers—the customers that are local, that are going on grand adventures, and the anticipation of that. I love to hear their itineraries. And we’re also seeing so many tourists coming to Victoria too, because we have such a beautiful destination. So hearing their stories of where they’re from and where they’re going throughout Canada is great.” 

How do you think Adventure Clothing positively impacts the community? 

“Definitely by supporting people through their travels, and supporting my employees. Also by just being a vibrant member of the business community. This street has seen a beautiful little revival with some fabulous businesses, big to small. And that all just adds to the vibrancy of Downtown.” 

What is the workplace culture like here at Adventure Clothing? 

“I have a very diverse group of employees, from a few young students going to Camosun College and bettering their futures, to a few early retired staff members that love to just come in one or two days a week who are travellers too. So it’s their passion for travelling and their experiences that really help guide the customers.” 

What do you think sets Adventure Clothing apart from the competition? 

“As for competition, I am definitely becoming the go-to place for luggage. I’m also the go-to place for travel accessories—all your adaptors, neck pillows, and packing cubes. However, I also have some really great neighbours, and I try to be a great neighbour. So if I don’t have something, maybe another locally owned and operated business close-by has a product that my customers need. I’m going to give you a great example—Robinson’s is always sending us customers and we are always sending some of our customers to Robinson’s as well.” 

Is there any special ingredient to keeping Adventure Clothing successful? 

“I think one of the key ingredients is actually being a present store owner. I think the thing that sets local businesses—brick and mortar stores—apart is the staff and the owner being present and putting their stamp of approval on things. It really just helps to give that confidence to the customer to buy the product.”

I would NOT recommend shopping in this store. I purchased a dress there and when I got home, I found it had sticky pieces of tape stuck inside, and the seams were crooked, causing the dress to pucker down the side. When I returned it, I got the run around, and after waiting four days, was told that they would not return my money or give a store credit. I will shop elsewhere, where customers are treated properly. This store obviously is not interested. in customers.

Hi Carol it would be appreciated if you updated your review as the dress was refunded and you took a lovely pacsafe bag instead. I believe all is good. Thanks Sean Store owner

25 best things to do in victoria, bc + travel guide.

Victorian parliament and it's beautiful lawns

Victoria, British Columbia is one of the most underrated cities in Canada. It’s got a vibrant waterfront, bustling downtown and foodie scene, and some excellent activities for outdoor lovers like myself. So there are plenty of fun things to do in Victoria whether you’re into history, nature or getting fancy.

In this post, you’ll find a comprehensive list of the best things to do in Victoria, some background information on the city and practical travel information like getting around and where to stay.

About Victoria

Victoria is the provincial capital of British Columbia and is one of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest. Established in 1843, it was named for Queen Victoria and has several well-preserved historical buildings.

Victoria is also home to the oldest Chinatown in Canada / second oldest Chinatown in North America. And charmingly, Victoria is known as ‘The Garden City’ with an almost overwhelming number of flowers everywhere.

Victoria is situated on the traditional territory of Lekwungen , a Coast Salish first nations people. At present, the nearest First Nation is Songhees Nation. Throughout Victoria, there are seven carvings that mark places of cultural significance for Lekwungen people, and you can find them all on this page of the Songhees Nation website .

How to Get to Victoria

Getting to Victoria is pretty straight forward, but it does require a little planning ahead of time. Unless you’re already on Vancouver Island or flying directly into Victoria, you’ll need to take the ferry.

How to get from Vancouver to Victoria

You can fly from Vancouver to Victoria. This is the fastest option but also the most expensive. You can use Harbour Air Sea Planes. Check prices and schedules here .

Instead, the best way to get from Vancouver to Victoria is to take the ferry . The ferry is operated by BC Ferries. Check prices and schedules here .

The ferry leaves from Tsawwassen Harbour (which is south of Vancouver) and goes to Swartz Harbour (which is north of Victoria). The ferry takes about 1.5 hours.

To get to Tsawwassen, you can either drive your own vehicle, take a bus or take a cab / Uber. The same is true going from Swartz to Victoria. Bus routes change occasionally, so I recommend planning the route on Google Maps and following its recommended route.

travel gear victoria bc

Getting Around Victoria

You definitely don’t need a car in Victoria, and I’d recommend going without one. Almost all of the activities are within walking distance within downtown. You can also rent a bike or take public transit for the further away destinations. I absolutely loved navigating the city by bike and transit (even when it did rain a little).

Biking down the street in Victoria

How long should you spend in Victoria

You could see all of the highlights in Victoria within 48 hours, and I think this is the perfect amount of time to spend. On this trip, we were initially meant to stay 24 hours but felt there was still more to see and extended our trip by a day.

By the end of the 48 hours, however, we felt we’d visited all the destinations we were interested in seeing and were ready to leave. So if you have the time, I recommend allowing for a full two days.

Things to do in Victoria, BC

1. explore inner harbour.

The Inner Harbour is incredibly beautiful. Both the British Columbia Parliament Building and the Fairmont Empress sit across from the harbour. The Visitor’s Centre is here as well. The walk along the harbour is lush with flowers (as you can see from the many pictures I took). There are boats moored to the docks and the occasional pickle boat arriving or departing.

The Inner Harbour is close to a lot of the top restaurants and shops in Victoria and is a great place to stroll around before dinner (and as the sun sets).

Parliament buildings in Victoria British Columbia

2. Visit Butchart Gardens

Butchart Gardens is an absolutely stunning garden just north of Victoria. We hopped on a bus outside of the parliament building in downtown Victoria and travelled a little less than an hour. We were dropped off right at the Butchart Gardens entrance.

For me, the highlight of the gardens was the Sunken Garden. You descend down a flight of stone steps and then weave through a series of beautifully colourful arrangements. What makes it so special though is that there are stone walls and short cliffs on all sides. That, plus the canopy of trees above makes the whole area feel very cozy.

Yohann, on the other hand, loved the Japanese Garden. Bamboo shoots sprung out of the ground on either side; there was a pond with stepping stones to cross.

You can either drive to the gardens or take the bus from downtown. The bus takes about an hour and will cost $2.50 each way.

Admission to the gardens (at the time of writing) is $36 for each adult.

Tour Option : There is gardens + boat tour that takes you from Victoria to the Butchart Gardens, and then on a sunset ferry back to Vancouver. This would be a great way to end your trip in Victoria.

>>Check prices and schedule for the tour here

Note: I am not sponsored / affiliated with Butchart Gardens. Both my boyfriend and I paid for our tickets ourselves.

3. Go Whale Watching

Victoria is an excellent place to go whale watching, and it’s probably one of the best places in Canada (tied with the St Lawrence Seaway and the east coast of Newfoundland perhaps).

We went with a tour company called Eagle Wing Tours . They were the highest-rated tour group on Google and had the largest coverage area. We had three guides on board who were all naturalists / marine biologists. I’ve never had a wildlife tour provide so much education on the species we were seeing.

>> You can book the tour here .

The tour lasted 3.5 hours and during that time we saw a few pods of Killer Whales (orcas) and a pair of Minke whales.

By far the highlight was seeing a group of orcas hunt a porpoise, and in doing so, punt the porpoise out of the air. Somehow I, the clumsy photographer, managed to click the shutter at the right moment and capture this crazy occurrence.

Apparently, Minke whales are quite rare to see, especially so close to the boat, so that was also a nice treat.

We also visited an island where puffins nest and saw three puffins floating in the water. Then we went to another island to check out some harbour seals. Overall it was a successful trip and I highly recommend this company!

Note: I am not sponsored / affiliated with Eagle Wings. Both my boyfriend and I paid for our tickets ourselves.

5. Explore the coast by bike

After this bike ride in Victoria, I am convinced biking is the best way to explore a new city, especially a coastal city. You can explore more of a city than you can on foot, but you still get to make spontaneous stops and take everything in, unlike when in a car.

There aren’t designated bike lanes, but there isn’t that much traffic either. So even the timid biker (myself) will feel comfortable getting around.

Renting Bikes : Our hotel had free bike rentals (though there are places where you can rent bikes too). Ensure you get a bike lock so you can store your bike safely while making stops.

Many of the following destinations were visited by bike.

6. Visit China Town

Victoria is home to the oldest Chinatown in Canada, and the second oldest in North America. There are a lot of great shops to pop into here, as well as some Chinese restaurants and markets to get a bite to eat.

7. Fisherman’s Wharf

Fisherman’s Wharf is a community of houseboats, shops and food stands right on the water. I haven’t seen another place like this in Canada, so it’s definitely worth a visit. The best fish place we went to was here (The Fish Stop, see below). The whale watching tour also launched from here.

travel gear victoria bc

8. Check Out the Unity Wall Mural

After the Fisherman’s Wharf, if you continue tracing the coast you’ll eventually come to Unity Wall Mural. It was painted by First Nations artists to celebrate and honour the history and traditions of the Salish Nations, the original inhabitants of what is now the Greater Victoria Area.

You can read more about the mural and the incredible artists here .

travel gear victoria bc

9. Bike to Holland Point Park

If you continue biking from the Unity Wall Mural, you’ll come to Holland Point Park. Here we were able to lock the bikes and walk down to a pebble beach. Driftwood and kelp were scattered amongst the stones; wildflowers grew along the cliff face. It’s a really pretty spot and a natural place to turn the bikes around and peddle back downtown.

10. Go Shopping on Government

Before dinner, do a little window shopping on Government Street. The street (and those adjacent to it) has some cute and quirky shops, plus some well known outdoor brands. 

Here are a few stores I really liked (I’ve also included them on the map above):

Migration Boutique

A cute shop with a stop is Migration. It sources pieces from the most local designers in Victoria of any store here. It is a great place to find pretty, moderately priced jewelry, interesting t-shirts and some quirky home trinkets. I found a fun shirt with a deer on it (perfect after I spilled coffee on my original shirt).

Upcycle – A Clothing Collective

One shop I definitely recommend checking out is Upcycle, an eco-conscious mid-tier consignment shop. They have some high end brands, like the occasional Hugo Boss sweater, but mostly it’s beautiful eclectic clothing from known and unknown brands. I did manage to score four lululemon items that totalled less than $125.

Ecologyst is an outdoor lifestyle clothing brand. All of its clothing is sustainably sourced and made in Canada, with the majority being made right in Victoria. The clothing is pricey (understandable since it’s made in Canada), but is very high quality and can be purchased with a clear conscience.

In addition to those listed above (which I personally did on this exact trip), here are some additional activities in Victoria that you could do if you had more than two days in the city.

11. Learn at the Royal British Columbia Museum

Victoria is home to the excellent Royal British Columbia Museum, which can make for an excellent activity if the weather turns a little too rainy. There are several permanent exhibitions, as well as others that are seasonal. While I was there the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit was on.

12. Kayak to Tod Inlet

If you’d like to be closer to the water, instead of whale watching you can go kayaking. A popular choice is to start at Brentwood Bay and kayak to Tod Inlet, which offers the chance to see blue herons, sea stars and seals.

13. Hike Mount Douglas

Mount Douglas is a popular hike outside Victoria. It’s a total of 4 km (round trip) and requires 1.5 hours to complete. The elevation gain is 205 m. From the top, you get great views of the city and can even see out to the ocean.

We were supposed to hike up Mount Douglas with some friends upon arriving in Victoria, but we missed our intended ferry and couldn’t make the hike. Our friends said they really enjoyed it and that is was suitable for all levels of hikers.

14. Walk along Willows Beach

Willows Beach is perhaps the most popular beach around Victoria (although it’s less popular for swimming). The beach is sandy with driftwood logs scattered about. Swimmers beware – the water is super cold!

There’s also a tea room nearby (which might be needed to warm you up if you do go in the water!).

15. Tour Craigdarroch Castle

Did you know Victoria has its own castle? While it might not compare with the castles of Europe, it’s pretty impressive for a North American castle. You can take a tour and explore the interior and exterior of the castle.

16. Visit the Victoria Art Gallery

Another great activity for a rainy day is visiting the Victoria Art Gallery. In addition to featuring global works of art, the gallery has made a significant effort to showcase art and artists local to the Pacific Rim area.

17 & 18. Bike the Lochside Trail or Galloping Goose Trail

If biking along the shoreline wasn’t enough for you, consider biking down the Lochside or Galloping Goose Trails.

Where to Eat in Victoria, BC

Victoria has so many incredible eateries that they are activities in their own right.

19. Get French at Little Jumbo

For dinner on our first night, we went to the highly-rated Little Jumbo. The restaurant has a bit of a speakeasy vibe to it – exposed brick walls, a long leather bench extending the length of the restaurant with wooden tables along with it.

The food was excellent – try the seared tuna, the halibut on risotto or the lamb. They also had great truffle fries (a personal favourite of mine), some good dessert options and a menu of eclectic cocktails.

20. Eat fresh fish at The Fish Store

You’ll find The Fish Store along the water in Fisherman’s Wharf. We went there for lunch after the whale watching tour. There have tons of options for fish-based soups, salads, tacos, and of course, your classic Fish & Chips.

As recommended by the employee working there, I got the tuna and salmon tacos and a side of salmon chowder. Oh my goodness, was it tasty. I’ve never had seared tuna in a taco before. And the salmon chowder was excellent – you could tell it was made fresh.

travel gear victoria bc

21. Get Fancy with Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont Empress

On my first trip to Victoria, which would have been more than 10 years ago, my mom and I did Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont Empress. I still have the container the tea came in (and have saved a few of the tea bags – does tea expire?).

It’s a wonderfully elegant way to spend the afternoon – tea, finger sandwiches and biscuits in a room that looks like it’s straight out of Buckingham Palace. It was sold out for the entirety of this trip, but 10 year old Mikaela strongly recommends you check it out.

If afternoon tea isn’t to your fancy, there is also Q at the Empress at the hotel which is one of the best places for brunch in Victoria .

Tea at the Empress - Fairmont Empress - Fairmont, luxury Hotels & Resorts

22. Find food and art at Imagine Studio Cafe

On our bike back we passed this incredibly cute cafe. There were tons of flowers outside and plenty of patio seating – my kind of place. I purchased some cards from a local artist and bought a piece of bannock. Bannock is kind of like a scone, especially warmed up with butter and jam.

travel gear victoria bc

23. Get drinks at Bard & Banker

Bard & Banker is reminiscent of the kind of car you’d see in an episode of Mad Men. And they have one of the most extensive drinks menus I’ve ever seen. Some nights they host live music too.

After drinks, be sure to walk by the Parliament Building on your way home. It gets lit up at night and looks like a fairy tale.

travel gear victoria bc

24. Indulge treats at La Roux Pâtisserie

Just outside of Chinatown is a great French pastry shop. Although it was only 10:30 am, I couldn’t resist getting a treat. I had a hazelnut pastry with a hint of chocolate (kind of had a slight Nutella vibe to it). They also have a good selection of tea and espresso beverages.

travel gear victoria bc

25. Get dirty with ice cream at Perverted

If you seriously want to indulge, go to Perverted for an incredible ice cream cone. All of the cones are made with either Vanilla or Chocolate soft serve ice cream, and then topped with a variety of treats. I got the Salted Caramel, and it had caramel sauce, crushed pretzels and a chocolate wafer. So good.

Where to Stay in Victoria

Hotel grand pacific.

We stayed at the Hotel Grand Pacific and really liked it. It’s located right across from the Inner Harbour and adjacent to the Parliament Building. It’s within walking distance to tons of shops and restaurants, the Royal BC Museum and more. They also provided free bike rentals, which made it easy to visit the XX and Chinatown.

>>Check latest prices here

I was not sponsored by Hotel Grand Pacific. My boyfriend and I paid for our room ourselves (using a great deal from BC Ferries – more on that below).

Other Options

Luxury : The Fairmont Empress would be the more luxurious – and most expensive – hotel in Victoria. Check latest prices here .

Mid-Range : There are tons and tons of mid-range hotels in Victoria. The best bang for your buck would be to go with one of these vacation packages by BC Ferries, which include a mid-range hotel and the ferry from Vancouver to Victoria.

Budget : There are two hostels / inns suitable for backpackers in downtown Victoria for budget travellers. Check out latest prices here .

Packing always seems daunting before you start. You don’t want to overpack but you also don’t want to forget something! When visiting a city like Vancouver, we always try to remind ourselves that as long as we have the critical things, everything else can be found at the destination if need be.

There are some key packing list items that are important to bring on any trip to Vancouver. Here are some of the basic must-have essentials to pack ahead of your trip:

  • Suitcase — Of course, one of the most important pieces to pack is a suitcase that’ll hold all of your things! We prefer luggage that fits in the cabin, bypassing the extra time to check bags and preventing you from possibly losing your luggage in transit. We recommend this 20-inch suitcase , as it’s lightweight but sturdy, and will fit in overhead bins. But if you have excess liquids or just feel you need more space (maybe you like bringing home souvenirs), we recommend this larger alternative !
  • Travel Backpack — Prefer to travel hands-free? A travel backpack is the way to go! While we usually travel with a suitcase, a backpack is great for long walks and hostel-style adventures. A Pacsafe travel backpack is our go-to when we decide to travel with a backpack. It fits the carry-on sizing requirements and has anti-theft features to keep your belongings safe.
  • Identification — If you’re a Canadian citizen, you’ll need your driver’s license to board any flights. You’ll also need it to rent a car (RentalCars.com has unbeatable prices), so don’t leave it at home! If you’re arriving from outside of Canada, don’t forget your passport, too. Make sure that it’s not expired (or with 6 months of expiring).
  • Travel Credit Card — While cash is accepted in most places, you’ll need a credit card to easily pay with a foreign currency, make advanced bookings (like tickets, accommodations, and rentals), rent a vehicle, and so on. We recommend one that will give you points, either cash back or travel points, to make a little money back on vacation purchases.
  • Money Belt — Most parts of Vancouver are safe for tourists, but it’s still a big city and pickpocketing can always happen! You should always exercise caution over your belongings when in certain areas, like in downtown, touristy areas (like Gastown or Robson Street), or crowded areas. If you’re worried about your valuables, we recommend a money pouch or bra pouch that is worn close to the body to keep valuables safe at all times.
  • Travel Insurance — We always, always, always recommend travel insurance for any international trip. You just never know what could happen and it’s better to be safe than sorry! Some credit cards offer some sort of travel insurance, but make sure you read the fine print before relying on that. To make sure you’re covered, we recommend getting travel insurance from SafetyWing or World Nomads.
  • Padlock — Keeping your valuables safe is important when traveling. You don’t want to have your stuff stolen in the airport or hostel! We recommend this TSA-approved lock for checked baggage. You can’t just put a regular lock on your checked bags because the TSA security officers might have to search your bags and would have to break a normal lock, unfortunately. If you’re staying in a hostel, we recommend a regular combination lock to keep your belongings safe.
  • Travel documents — Make sure that you have all of your travel documents, either printed or loaded onto your phone. These documents include things like your flight ticket details, Vancouver travel itinerary, hotel reservations (and addresses!!), copies of identification documents, medical and travel insurance certificates, car rental reservations, health travel documents, valid visa ( if necessary ), event or activity tickets, etc.

What Clothing to Wear in Vancouver

Deciding on what clothing to bring on a vacation is always difficult, especially in Vancouver. Sometimes the weather catches you by surprise and you don’t want to be unprepared!

Packing lots of layers is important when visiting Vancouver. While Vancouver does have a mild, temperate climate, the city is also known for getting rain, rain, and more rain (especially from November to April)! You need to be able to add or remove layers as the weather changes.

Winter in Vancouver gets the most rain but luckily, the city does stay much warmer than the rest of Canada. Even in winter, the city itself doesn’t get much snow. Summers are sunny and warm — perfect for beach days!

Basically, you’ll want to pack clothing for a range of conditions, from warm sunny weather to cool rainy days! Here is a list of clothing that we recommend packing for a trip to Vancouver:

  • Raincoat ( Women’s / Men’s ) — Vancouver is often called “Raincouver”, so make sure you bring a raincoat in case of unexpected showers! Every local knows that a good waterproofed rain jacket is essential for Vancouver. We wear the Arcteryx Beta AR ( Women’s / Men’s ) year-round and it’s perfectly suited to Vancouver’s coastal weather. This jacket is an investment, but we found that it’s worth the price instead of periodically replacing low-quality ones.
  • Insulated Jacket ( Women’s / Men’s ) — If you’re visiting Vancouver between October and April, it’s a good idea to have an insulated jacket. Although Vancouver isn’t known for low temperatures (usually it’s 0 to 10°C in winter), the dampness can really add to the chill (you’ll probably hear locals insist “it’s a wet cold”!). A good puffy jacket will make a huge difference and is usually all you need to stay warm. We wear an Arc’teryx Atom LT Jacket ( Women’s / Men’s ). It’s warm but packs down small, making it great for traveling.
  • Waterproof pants ( Women’s / Men’s ) — You might not find rain pants necessary if you plan on staying in the city but for hiking in the rain , waterproof pants are a must! Rain pants are also great if you plan on biking in the rain (bikes are one of the best ways to explore Vancouver). We love the Mountain Hardwear Stretch Ozonic Pants ( Women’s / Men’s ), which will keep you dry and also come on and off easily thanks to full-length zippers.
  • Hats — No matter what time of year you visit, you’ll probably want some kind of hat! A classic baseball cap or snapback ( Women’s / Men’s ) is great for shielding your eyes from the sun or keeping the back of your neck protected. If you’re visiting during winter, a toque or beanie like this winter hat will keep your head warm. This hat is unisex (even though it’s marketed towards men), but here is a women-specific one as an alternative.
  • Shirts ( Women’s / Men’s ) — You’ll want a few different styles of shirts for your trip to Vancouver. For days spent outdoors, these quick-drying merino shirts from Icebreaker ( Women’s / Men’s ) are perfect and come in a variety of colors. Other than that, it’s a good idea to pack some simple button-down shirts or something a little more fancy if you plan on going to any nice restaurants.
  • Pants ( Women’s / Men’s ), Leggings , Dresses , and/or Skirts — Leggings, pants, or jeans will all work for a trip to Vancouver, so pick whatever is most comfortable. Alternatively, pack some summer dresses or skirts if that’s more your style! We often wear Lululemon leggings , as they are fairly durable and comfortable. Since this brand is headquartered in Vancouver and very popular, you’ll blend right in with the locals. We also really like prAna pants, either the Halle for women or Stretch Zion for men. These pants are great for casual wear or adventures like hiking or rock climbing!
  • Warm Sweaters ( Women’s / Men’s ) — Even in the summer, a warm sweater or hoodie is a good idea. Evenings can be cool and of course, winters are chilly, both day and night. You want to make sure you have enough layers to keep warm. We recommend these Columbia fleece jackets ( Women’s / Men’s ), but any hoodie or sweater will do the trick.
  • Socks ( Women’s / Men’s ) — Don’t forget to pack socks ( Women’s / Men’s )! Even if you’re visiting in the summer, you’ll want these for chilly evenings. We recommend a pair for every day, plus a few spare pairs.
  • Hiking Socks — Have any Vancouver hikes planned? If so, you’ll want to pack some hiking socks. Unlike everyday socks, hiking socks are cushioned to prevent blisters and made with materials that help reduce sweat and odor. If you’re looking for a new pair of hiking socks, we highly recommend Darn Tough socks . The quality of these socks is second to none, and they have a great lifetime guarantee — the brand replaces any socks showing signs of wear!
  • Underwear ( Women’s / Men’s ) — Something you definitely can’t forget to pack! We always try and pack a pair for every day (of course), plus a few extras — maybe more, depending on the time of the month.
  • Bras / Sports Bras — For those who need it, be sure to pack a few bras. Also, if you’re planning on being active and spending time outdoors, make sure to pack some sports bras, too. Need a new sports bra? This Under Armour sports bra is a great option for support and color choices. For those who mostly plan on relaxing, just make sure you pack whatever will be the most comfortable!
  • Pajamas / Loungewear ( Women’s / Men’s ) — You’ll want to pack some cozy pajamas and clothes to relax in. For those who like PJs, something like these ( Women’s / Men’s ) would work well. Or, just pack some classic sweatpants to relax in when you’re unwinding from the day.
  • Hiking Pants ( Women’s / Men’s ) — If you’re planning on taking advantage of Vancouver’s many trails, hiking pants are a must. The prAna Halle or Stretch Zion pants are great for hikes and other outdoor activities. If you’re willing to invest, Fjällräven trousers ( Women’s / Men’s ) are also a good choice due to their water-resistant Greenland wax coating and lots of pockets. Alternatively, if you’re on a budget, you can often find some okay pants for hiking in secondhand stores.
  • Shorts ( Women’s / Men’s ) — Visiting Vancouver in the summer? Don’t forget shorts! You’d be surprised at how hot it can get and shorts are perfect for time spent outside on a sunny day. Another option is to bring a pair of board shorts ( Women’s / Men’s ), which can double as casual shorts and are great for days spent on one of Vancouver’s best beaches .
  • Sunglasses ( Women’s / Men’s ) — Make sure to protect your eyes! We recommend bringing sunglasses on your trip, even if you’re visiting Vancouver in the winter. We like Costa Del Mar sunglasses ( Women’s / Men’s ) since they are designed for outdoorsy types. The lenses are 100% polarized to reduce glare and protect your eyes from UV rays. Plus, they look pretty good!
  • Swimsuit ( Women’s  /  Men’s )  — From Kitsilano to Wreck Beach, Vancouver is home to plenty of amazing beaches so don’t forget your swimsuit and beach towel ! While the water around BC is relatively cold, you’ll still need a swimsuit to sunbathe, soak in a hot tub, or do a polar dip.
  • Base Layer Tops ( Women’s / Men’s ) and Bottoms ( Women’s / Men’s ) — Base layers are the perfect way to stay warm in winter without being bogged down by too many layers. These ones by Smartwool are pricey, but worth it. They’re also very packable and won’t take up much space in your luggage.
  • Gloves — If you’re visiting Vancouver in the winter, gloves are a must! You’d be surprised at how quickly your hands can get cold, especially during activities like hiking or when you’re pulling your phone out for directions.
  • Scarf — A scarf is another good idea for fall or winter visits. They do a good job of keeping out the cold around your neck, and as a bonus, they are quite trendy in Vancouver!
  • Snow Pants ( Women’s / Men’s ) — While Vancouver doesn’t get much snow, the North Shore Mountains and rest of the Lower Mainland does. In the winter, if you want to venture into the mountains for some skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing, a pair of snow pants would come in handy. Of course, you probably won’t need snow gear if you don’t plan on leaving the city but snow pants will be useful for winter adventures at Grouse Mountain, Cypress Mountain, Mount Seymour, or Whistler-Blackcomb Ski Resort.

What Footwear to Pack for Vancouver

Vancouver is a big city with a great transit system, but plan on doing a lot of walking!

Your shoes should be suited to the weather and terrain. Make sure to pick comfortable footwear, especially for long walks around the city. In winter, expect there to be rain at some point so pack some waterproof shoes. And of course, you’ll need some extra shoes for fancy nights out, hikes, beach days, and other fun activities!

Vancouverites spend a lot of time outside and you probably will too. Here’s our advice on what shoes to pack for Vancouver:

  • Comfortable Shoes — Vancouver’s public transit system is great but even so, be prepared to do a lot of walking to see everything! Running shoes ( Women’s / Men’s ) are great for walking around Vancouver. But, if you really want to feel like a local, a sleek new pair of Blundstones will really make you fit in — you’ll see everyone wearing these! They are extremely comfortable and versatile, too!
  • Hiking Boots ( Women’s / Men’s ) — If you plan on exploring the endless hiking trails in and around Vancouver (like Lynn Canyon Park, the Grouse Grind, or St. Mark’s Summit), you’ll need a good pair of hiking boots. Vancouver’s hiking trails are beautiful but no joke — be prepared for uneven terrain, muddy areas, roots, and steep inclines. For the coastal terrain, we highly recommend Salomon Quest GTX hiking boots ( Women’s / Men’s ). They are very comfortable shoes but just make sure you break them in before you arrive (as with all hiking boots)!
  • Sandals ( Women’s / Men’s ) — Vancouver has plenty of beautiful beaches, so sandals are a must! We like Sanuk flip-flops ( Women’s / Men’s ), but any sandals you already have will work. If you want to do some serious beachcombing and walking into the water, we recommend Chaco sandals ( Women’s / Men’s ) that strap onto your feet. You’ll be glad for something sturdy when exploring some of Vancouver’s beaches, like Jericho Beach, Spanish Banks, or Kitsilano.
  • Rain Boots ( Women’s / Men’s ) — Don’t get caught in the wet weather without rain boots! Vancouver is a rainy place in winter but it is prone to summer showers too. Packing rain boots is a good idea at any time of year (they’re also great for tide pooling). We like BOGS tall rain boots ( Women’s / Men’s ), but their ankle boots ( Women’s / Men’s ) are just as good and easier to pack. Alternatively, you can get away without packing rain boots but make sure you have some sort of waterproofed shoe as an alternative.

What Electronics to Pack

We know you won’t want to be glued to your phone on vacation, but some electronics are a must when traveling — especially to a city as beautiful as Vancouver where you’ll want to take a ton of photos!

Make sure to be careful with any electronics you bring. An anti-theft backpack that opens from the back is a good idea to prevent anyone else from getting their hands on your gear. Vancouver is a safe city for tourists, but you don’t want to take chances!

Here are a few suggestions of electronic devices we find useful when traveling:

  • Phone & Chargers — Everyone remembers their phone, but don’t forget your charger. You don’t want to be stuck with a dead phone! Of course, if you do accidently leave your phone charger at home, you can easily buy a replacement in many stores in Vancouver. It’s just easier if you don’t have to do this!
  • Travel Camera — Vancouver is a very photogenic city, so you’ll want a good camera to document your trip! We never leave home without our Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Full Frame DSLR , but we are also obsessed with taking photos. Although it’s expensive, the professional quality of the images from this DSLR is worth the price and it’s great for wildlife photography (we love taking it on whale-watching tours ). If you prefer something smaller (in size and price), a good option is a pocket-sized Canon PowerShot or just using your phone’s camera.
  • Camera Lenses — We always bring a few different lenses for our DSLR camera. Our top picks are the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L II for wildlife (we attach a 1.4X extender for extra zoom) and a Canon 16-35mm f/4L lens for landscapes. If you want a multi-purpose lens for traveling, the Canon 24-105mm (or Nikon Nikkor 24-120mm ) are great choices, too.
  • Tripod — A tripod isn’t a necessity, but it can make or break a photo, especially in low light or landscape photos. Our favorite lightweight option for cell phones is the UBeesize tripod , and for larger cameras, the Manfrotto Element is a sturdy option. This monopod also works well for those who like to take photos on the go.
  • Camera Bag — It’s important to protect all the photography gear you’ve invested in, so pack your gear into a quality camera bag. For adventuring, we like the Lowepro ProTactic 450 , which has a camera compartment but also extra room for additional items (like snacks). For casual transport around the city, this top-loading shoulder bag is a good option. Whatever you choose, make sure you have a rain cover to avoid moisture damage!
  • Memory Cards & External Hard Drive — If you take a lot of photos, your camera storage will fill up quickly! Don’t forget extra SD cards or an external hard drive to store all your photos and videos. This SanDisk 1TB SSD is the perfect travel option since it’s portable and takes up little to no space.
  • External Battery Pack — Using your phone all day will drain the battery fast, so having an external charger can be a lifesaver (literally, in some cases!). Bringing an external battery like the Anker PowerCore Slim means you can charge your phone while walking around the city. Just make sure to charge the charger beforehand, so it’s ready when you need it.
  • Laptop & Laptop Case — If you need to work or stay connected during your trip to Vancouver, bring a laptop. This way, you can unload photos and videos, but also have a bigger screen to watch shows or movies in your downtime. Make sure to store it inside a laptop case for protection.
  • GoPro — Vancouver is an outdoorsy place and a GoPro camera will capture all your nature adventures. We love the GoPro Hero11 but the older versions work well too. The great thing about GoPro is the huge variety of attachments (like protecting casings or chest mounts) that they offer for different kinds of activity, like swimming, skiing, rock climbing, and more.
  • E-Reader — As much as we love physical books, it’s hard to beat being able to bring an entire library with you on vacation. E-book readers like the Kindle Paperwhite are perfect for travelers, pack small, and hold a charge longer than a laptop.

Toiletries & Beauty Travel Essentials

When packing your toiletries, make sure to cut them down to the essentials to save space. Don’t bring anything unless you’re sure you’ll use it. If you’re taking carry-on luggage only, make sure to use travel-sized bottles (100mL or less).

Here are a few of the things we recommend packing for your trip to Vancouver. Just remember that everything here can be bought in the city if you forget it or just want to save space in your luggage!

  • Toiletries Bag — A bag to keep your toiletries together is essential. We recommend this toiletry bag (or this one ), which is large enough to fit enough things for two people. If you don’t need that much space, this smaller one works great too. Just keep in mind that if you are traveling with hand luggage only, you’ll need to store your liquids in a plastic bag for security screening in the airport.
  • Toothbrush , Toothpaste , & Dental Floss — If you’re driving to Vancouver, a normal-sized toothpaste and electric toothbrush will be fine. For air travel, you’ll need travel-sized versions, at least for the toothpaste! This folding travel toothbrush will conserve space in your luggage, and this travel-size toothpaste is a good size to bring on the plane. Don’t forget your floss, too!
  • Shampoo & Conditioner — For short stays in a hotel, you can use the hotel-provided hair wash products to save space in your luggage. But for a longer trip to Vancouver, stays in a hostel/Airbnb, or if you require certain hair products, it’s best to bring your own. We recommend getting some empty small bottles and filling them with your preferred shampoo and conditioner. Alternatively, buy pre-filled travel-sized shampoo and conditioner bottles . Another option is to bring a shampoo bar and conditioner bar instead. The bars work very well and won’t add extra liquids to your luggage.
  • Soap or Body Wash — Most hotels will provide body wash or bar soap. However, sometimes it’s nice to have your own, especially if you’re prone to sensitive skin. This zero-waste handmade bar soap smells great and works better! Alternatively, you can find body wash in pre-filled travel-sized containers or fill up some empty travel bottles . And don’t forget your face cleanser, if you use it!
  • Deodorant ( Men’s / Women’s ) — A very important addition, especially if you plan to be active on your Vancouver vacation! We usually pack whatever we’re currently using at home. If you use a gel, liquid or spray deodorant, make sure it’s small enough for airport security or packed in your checked bags.
  • Sunscreen — Vancouver has great summer weather with sunny days, so don’t forget sunscreen! Even when the sky is overcast, it’s important to protect your skin. We recommend an ocean-friendly sunscreen like Sun Bum . It’s waterproof and smells great!
  • Lip Balm — You’d be surprised how dry your lips can get from saltwater and sunshine. Our favorite is Burts Bees , made with beeswax to keep your lips hydrated for hours.
  • Makeup — Vancouver has a laid-back vibe but if you want to feel put together for nights out in the city, don’t forget makeup! You probably only need a few essentials like concealer, blush and mascara. Just make sure you get travel sizes if you need them for air travel. Don’t forget a travel mirror so you can apply on the go!
  • Hairbrush and Hair Elastics — Make sure to bring a good hairbrush and some elastics if you have long hair. If you spend any time in the ocean, the salt water will make your hair quite tangled!
  • Hair Styler , Hair Dryer , and Hair Styling Products — If you rely on hair styling tools, don’t forget to pack these! If you use a flat iron or curler, we recommend this 2-in-1 styler . We also recommend a hair dryer , especially since salt water can make your hair feel a little dried out and the heat from the dryer will help with this after a wash. You can also check in advance if your accommodation has one available.
  • Feminine Hygiene Products — There’s no worse feeling than your period arriving early and not being prepared! Although these are available in every grocery store and drugstore in Vancouver, it’s a good idea to pack a few extra pads and tampons in your bags just in case. Or, bring a waste-free menstrual cup .
  • Nail Kit — We recommend a nail care kit to keep your fingernails trimmed and healthy. This kit has everything you need to cut and file. If you bring nail scissors, just make sure that you check airline regulations around the scissor size allowed in carry-on luggage. Leave the scissors at home if it exceeds size requirements!
  • Cologne or Perfume — It’s always nice to have a travel-sized bottle of your favorite scent, especially if you are going out for a nice dinner!
  • Razors ( Women’s / Men’s ) and Shaving Cream — Even for short trips, it’s nice to be able to shave. Most airlines will allow razors in your hand luggage as long as they are encased in plastic. If you use loose razor blades, make sure to put these in your checked bags.
  • Contacts & Glasses — Don’t forget your eyesight essentials: glasses, contacts (if you use them), contact lens solution , and a carrying case ! A spare pair of glasses is a good idea, just in case.
  • Moisturizer — Vancouver has a mild and humid climate, which is generally quite good for your skin. Even so, you should still bring a moisturizer to keep your skin happy. The sun and saltwater can dry your skin out. This one by Aveeno is our favorite, and we also recommend a face moisturizer . If you burn easily, an aloe vera lotion is also great to help soothe irritated skin.

Essential Health Items

Sometimes, vacations don’t go quite as planned and you get sick. And, in a city where people spend so much time outdoors, injuries are always a possibility, too! It’s a good idea to bring a few things with you to Vancouver that can help get you back in tip-top shape if you get sick or hurt. Here are the health items we recommend adding to your packing list for your trip to Vancouver:

  • First Aid Kit — A first aid kit is important if you plan on being active outdoors. You can put together your own or purchase a pre-assembled one. In either case, be sure to remove the scissors if you bring it in your carry-on bags.
  • Prescriptions — It’s extremely important to remember your prescriptions. You might not be able to purchase them if you forget. Be sure to bring enough to last your trip and a few days extra. And don’t forget your birth control if you take it as a pill!
  • Stomach Medicine — There are drugstores everywhere in Vancouver if you forget stomach medicine. But, when you’re sick, it’s nice to not have to run to the store to get medicine — especially if you’re glued to the toilet! It’s better to be prepared and pack some medicine with you, just in case. Imodium or Pepto Bismol will help many stomach problems, and bringing antacids will help with heartburn, gas, and gut discomfort.
  • Painkillers — Painkillers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen are a lifesaver, especially if you get regular headaches. They are also good if you tend to get sore after long flights or car trips.
  • Bandaids — These are a no-brainer and should be in every first aid kit! For anyone who’s injury prone, bandages are a must-bring!
  • Antihistamines — We always recommend packing some antihistamines in case of an allergy attack. Long-lasting allergy meds like Claritin work great for those who spend lots of time outside. Otherwise, Benadryl is a good option for quick relief and can double as a sleep aid, since it contains similar ingredients to sleep medication.
  • Tissues — You never know when (or for what!) you might need a tissue . Small packs of tissues are very handy to keep in your daily bag, especially when traveling.
  • Bug Spray — Compared to the rest of Canada, Vancouver is pretty safe from mosquitoes and other biting bugs like the dreaded horseflies, black flies, and deerflies found in other parts of the province. At the height of summer, you might encounter some mosquitoes, though. Make sure to bring bug repellent to keep the pests away!
  • Masks — Masks are no longer required in most places in British Columbia. If you like wearing masks though (some people do, some people don’t), don’t forget to pack some! We recommend reusable masks to be environmentally friendly. Be sure to check in advance to see if mask mandates have changed before you travel.

Extra Things to Bring on the Plane

If you’re traveling to Vancouver by plane, there are a few things you can pack to make your experience much more enjoyable. Even if you’re just flying within the province, bringing these extra items onto the plane is a good idea — you never know how long you might spend in the airport or on the plane!

Long flights can be uncomfortable, especially if you can’t afford the luxury of first class travel (like us). So, here are a few things you can bring on the plane and into the airport to make the experience more enjoyable.

  • Reusable Water Bottle — Pack an empty reusable water bottle to fill up on the other side of airport security. Most airports have fill stations or water fountains where you can fill up a bottle. Don’t spend money on expensive bottled water in the airport! Once you arrive, Vancouver’s tap water is safe to drink. We like Nalgene bottles , or you can get an insulated water bottle to keep the water nice and cold.
  • Neck Pillow — These are perfect for anyone who finds sleeping in planes or cars uncomfortable. They help cushion your neck and stop your head from lolling into painful positions. If noise and light bother you, make sure to get an eye mask and earplugs too.
  • Snacks — A no-brainer! Even on short flights, sometimes the food offered by the airline isn’t enough. Things like granola bars, sandwiches, crackers , rice crisps , jerky , or similar snacks will keep you full and energized so you’re ready to go when you arrive. A pack of gum is also useful in case your ears pop when flying.
  • Entertainment — If you’re lucky, your flight will have in-flight movies on the back of the seat in front of you. For those that don’t, you’ll want something to keep you busy, like a Kindle or laptop (which you can use to watch pre-downloaded movies). You can also download your favorite podcast to your phone and listen while in Airplane Mode. Just don’t forget to bring headphones or AirPods , so you don’t have to pay the airline for a set.

Other Travel Accessories for Vancouver

We’ve covered most of the essentials, but here are a few other ideas for non-necessities that could be helpful depending on what kind of activities you have planned for your trip.

  • Binoculars — You’ll want to have a pair of binoculars, especially if you’re planning on doing a whale-watching tour or going birdwatching (check out the George C Reifel Bird Sanctuary). We recommend the Nikon Monarch binoculars for a very long and sharp zoom. These are great for spotting bald eagles perched in the trees or whale spouts in the distance.
  • Travel Umbrella — An umbrella in rainy Vancouver is always a good idea. But, one thing that might come as as surprise, given that Vancouver is one of Western Canada’s wettest cities, is that locals are quite split on whether they like or hate umbrellas. Some use umbrellas everywhere, while others only ever wear their rain gear. Pack an umbrella (or don’t), depending on whether you find umbrellas useful for staying dry or annoying and cumbersome!
  • Travel Mug — These are a travel staple whether you’re in the city, on the plane, at the beach, or in the mountains. We love this Contigo travel mug , perfect for everything from soup to coffee. We can fill it with hot coffee in the morning, forget about it (as we commonly do), and find it hours later — still hot!
  • Laundry Bag & Detergent — Even if you don’t plan on doing laundry, having a laundry bag is a good way to separate your dirty clothes from your clean clothes. This way, you can remind yourself what’s been used and what hasn’t. If you do plan on doing any laundry, laundry detergent sheets pack easily and don’t add to your liquid count.
  • Travel Shoe Bag — These are super handy for keeping your shoes from touching your clean clothes. It’s especially handy if you have hiking boots or designated ‘outside shoes’. Vancouver is a coastal city, so many of the walking trails can get muddy in the rain. You don’t want to get dirt all over your suitcase when you pack your shoes!
  • SOS Device — Weather and injuries can be unpredictable despite your best efforts. If you do get stuck in a dangerous situation, the Garmin InReach Mini can send an SOS signal to the nearest search and rescue center. It also links to your phone to send messages via satellite while you don’t have a cell signal. Just remember that you will need a satellite subscription to send messages and use the SOS function.
  • Bear Spray — The mountains and forests around Vancouver do have some bears and cougars. Some people use bear bells, but they aren’t as effective as bear spray (actually, we don’t recommend using bear bells at all). Make sure you know how to use bear spray if you bring it! These canisters are not something you can pack in any luggage on a plane, so you will have to pick it up in Vancouver if you’re flying. Try one of the local outdoor stores, like Canadian Tire or MEC.
  • Day Pack — You will want a small backpack for daytime exploration. We like the Osprey Daylite Daypack , which is comfortable for long wear. If you’re doing any camping, you’ll need something larger, like the Osprey 65L ( Women’s / Men’s ), which can fit everything you’ll need.
  • Hiking Poles — If you’re doing any backcountry hiking, having a pair of trekking poles will help you keep your balance on uneven terrain and reduce stress on your body. We like the Black Diamond Trail Ergo Cork ones, but if you don’t want to spend too much, check out these budget-friendly hiking poles . These will make those long hikes through beautiful wilderness areas like Garibaldi Provincial Park or Cypress Provincial Park so much more enjoyable!

  • Travel Insurance – If you’re travelling internationally, travel insurance is a must for any trip. Being covered by insurance is especially important when you’re going to an adventure-filled place like British Columbia. If you injure yourself while adventuring, you want to have insurance! We recommend using SafetyWing for international travel insurance. They are affordable and have great policies for travellers, digital nomads, and remote workers. Also, SafetyWing provides COVID-19 coverage, which many other insurance companies don’t cover.
  • Car Rental – We find the best deal on vehicle rental prices using RentalCars.com . They compare the prices for different car rental companies so you can find the best deals out there!
  • Accommodations – We prefer booking all of our hotels, hostels, and other accommodations through Booking.com because they have a flexible cancellation policy. Also, there are lots of different options on their platform, from hotels to vacation homes. Alternatively, Expedia and Hotels.com are good for booking accommodations. For vacation home rentals, VRBO is an excellent choice (they have lower fees than Airbnb, many of the same properties, and are more ethical).
  • Flights – You’ll find many good flight deals on Skyscanner or Google Flights. You can book flights through these websites and they’ll help you find the best prices and flight times. If you fly at less popular times (e.g. mid-week or red-eye flights), you can also save some money.
  • Tours – Get the most out of your vacation by taking a guided tour! This is a great way to see the city, adventure to exciting new locations, and learn about the local culture. Viator or GetYourGuide are great options for booking tours.

What To Do In Victoria With Kids

Victoria is filled with activities for the family and things to do for kids! As the capital of British Columbia it has many museums and gardens, historical places to visit, and of course plenty of pools, parks, and activities. Here are a few favourites:

  • This huge museum has entertained local and visiting families since 1886 with its kid-friendly exhibits: “a showcase of 550 million years of natural history and 9,000 years of human history in BC” is accurate!
  • The grande dame of the Victoria waterfront is this stone and ivy hotel from the days of rail and ship. Their beautiful parlour serves classic high tea, with special service for the kids!
  • Nothing beats playing with goats! This huge community park has a “Children’s Farm” with lots of funny, friendly animals to play with.
  • A true west-coast Pacific experience, go out on the boats to see dolphins and orca (killer) whales up close! There are several provides, but our family has always had a good time with Prince of Whales (linked)
  • More fun for the kids than the squeamish parents! Get up close with crazy, wonderful, unique bugs from around the world, and hold them if you want! Perfect indoor way to spend some time if the weather’s bad and you need some entertainment.
  • Another perfect rainy-day activity, this cafe boasts a large selection of board games, a full cafe and restaurant menu, and plenty of space to sit as a family and try out a new game. We always stop here, even when we’re not with the kids!
  • Twenty minutes north of downtown, this beautiful oasis is filled with butterflies to blow the kids’ minds. Or sit quietly and let them land on you. Pro tip: it’s right next to the Church & State Winery if you’re going past ?
