Hotels in Sooke, Canada - your base to discover the city.
Sooke HotelsWatching a whale's streamlined body breaking through the ocean's surface - and seeing its blowhole firing water high into the air - is a Sooke sight that will stay with you forever. Whether it’s plucking salmon from the Sooke River, kayaking across the Salish Sea towards America, or hearing your footsteps echoing off the damp walls of Mystic Beach's caves, a stay in Sooke gives you the chance to rediscover your wild side. It won't feel like it, as you sit on the quiet beaches, and hike the deserted forest trails - but you'll only be an hour away from Victoria's modern metropolis and Victorian-era charms – so complementing your outdoor adventures with daytrips to the big city couldn't be much easier. Things to seeFor the ultimate introduction to this area's natural beauty, hike the leafy Galloping Goose trail, before stopping to dip in the sparkling waters of Sookes Potholes. This stunning site lets you soak in shallow, sun-warmed pools, listening to the sound of waterfalls plunging, and rivers roaring nearby. Afterwards, head out to the area around French Beach Provincial Park, where you can watch as waves from the Pacific Ocean thrash against jet-black rocks, and hurl themselves against the shore's jagged cliffs. You'll also encounter calm, pebbled beaches, where you can take long, relaxing walks – stopping to send flat-bottomed stones skimming across the water. Sooke Marine Boardwalk and Rotary Pier lets you take tentative steps right out over the waves, and peer down to spot the ethereal glimmer of jellyfish moving below the surface. Settle down to watch sailing boats bobbing in and out of the harbor, and anglers hauling spindly red crabs from the water. Hotels in SookeThere's simply no better way to take in the calm views of the Salish Sea at sunset, than by leaning back in a frothing hot tub, on your hotel's wooden balcony. Beautiful, homely hotels in Sooke offer an indulgent stay, with tender massages available whenever you need a little loosening up. Choose from bed and breakfast options - where generous hosts will dote to your every need - or modern boutique rooms - where sleek leather sofas let you relax, while staring out of huge glass windows. You may feel like you're out in the wild, but you won't need to go without WiFi and international phone lines while staying at hotels in Sooke. Where to stayWatch anglers loading their boats, from your hotel's balcony, before heading into town to sit at a candlelit table, where you can enjoy the fruits of their labor. Pluck juicy mussels – smothered in garlic – from their shells, or taste Pacific salmon that's so soft it breaks apart instantly in your mouth. Many people visit Sooke while staying in the capital of British Columbia, Victoria. Just 45 minutes away by road, a stay there gives you chance to see the city's lights twinkling in the harbor water, while taking luxury dinner cruises. Or, you can put on your best clothes to visit the Royal Theatre - where the stirring strings of the Victoria Symphony will rouse you one moment, and move you to tears the next. How to get to Sooke
