Welcome to Malahat, BC

The Malahat region is located near south Vancouver Island and boasts cliffs and dense surrounding forests. This area is a vital gateway from South Island to North Island and offers breathtaking viewpoints along the drive of Saanich Inlet and surrounding gulf islands. As you drive up to the summit, you climb 356 meters in elevation. Malahat itself is not a town, but there are dining experiences, accommodations, and other businesses along the way.

Getting to Malahat

Malahat is technically located in the Cowichan Valley but is only a short drive to British Columbia’s capital city, Victoria. Due to Malahat being between Victoria and Duncan, it’s accessible for people on both sides of the summit. Victoria International airport and the BC Ferries are an hour's drive from Malahat, making it relatively convenient for anyone travelling by air or sea. While biking could be an option, it is not recommended due to the windy and narrow sections of the road.

Malahat Weather

Due to Malahat being located at a summit, the weather can quickly change. However, summers are short and dry, while winters are long, wet, cold, and cloudy. The warmer season for Malahat falls between mid-June to mid-September, with an average high slightly above 20°C. Meanwhile, during the colder season from November to March, daily temperatures are often below 8°C. Rain is expected in Malahat, which contributes to the beautiful forests you drive through. Due to the high elevation, you can expect to experience snow during colder months. Therefore, be sure to monitor the weather if you plan to drive to or through Malahat.

Malahat Culture

The name Malahat comes from the Malahat First Nations. There are caves that the Malahat First Nation’s ancestors used for spiritual enhancement. Interestingly, the Malahat was first used as a cattle trail back in the early 1860s and used to take travellers three grueling days to pass over. This was inconvenient for those who relied on supplies that were boated into Victoria. People petitioned for a road to be built, but government officials said building a road would be impossible. However, over the years, the trail became a wagon road then paved in 1911. What is now a quick drive over the summit used to be a carefully planned trip with spare tires, food, and heaters!
