Sunny Saltspring Island

Overview

Quote:
The biggest Saltspring highlight is a market in the park every saturday all summer long. Local artists, musicians and businesses gather to display their wares following the rule 'make it, bake it, or grow it.'

If you check the local newspaper 'The Driftwood' it will tell you all the activities that are going on for that week. Every night is different and you will be sure to have lots of fun.

Best Way To Get Around:

Saltspring is so small that there are no buses so if you do not bring your car you will have to take a taxi, rent a car, walk or cycle.

Quote:
Dormitory style with private family rooms, kitchen, living room and a big fireplace. You can also sleep in an Indian Tipi or a treehouse. Its close to the lake and an ocean beach.
