My husband and I are planning an anniversary trip to Vancouver Island in July. If we book the flights we are looking at, we would arrive mid-day on a Thursday and fly out early the following Tuesday. From reading the forum posts, it looks like we could spend a month easily, so I am struggling with what our priorities should be. I want to see Bouchart Gardens, and we love to hike. Do we have time to get over to Tofino (seems like everyone really recommends that) or should we stay in Victoria and take day trips. We do plan to rent a car for our stay. Any recommendations for hotels, and especially restaurants that have a gluten free menu would be really appreciated. Thanks so very much for your help!
