Spoiler alert!

While we won’t mention who was eliminated in last night’s episode of Amazing Race Canada, we will talk about some of the spots and challenges featured!

Tuesday night’s episode of the Amazing Race Canada brought a whirlwind of excitement to our screens as contestants explored the beautiful landscapes and iconic landmarks of southern Vancouver Island.

As one of the two Vancouver Island teams returned to the race, the anticipation among viewers was palpable, and the episode did not disappoint.

The action-packed adventure kicked off with contestants on the hunt for driftwood animal sculptures concealed within the enchanting Malahat Skywalk.

This unique challenge showcased the region’s natural beauty, highlighting the picturesque views that southern Vancouver Island is known for.

Next, the contestants ventured to the historic Craigdarroch Castle, where they had to search for replica props from Disney’s The Haunted Mansion. The combination of history and pop culture added a delightful twist to the race, making it engaging for both the participants and the audience.

While some teams had to tackle an additional mission at the Victoria Bug Zoo, others faced off with the Canadian Scottish Regiment at the Colville Park Sports Field in Esquimalt.

This encounter with local culture and heritage brought a sense of community and camaraderie to the competition.

The final challenge took place in the charming town of Sooke, where contestants arrived at the picturesque harbour for their last test of the episode.

Sooke Mayor Maja Tait warmly welcomed the racers at Whiffin Spit, a 2.7-kilometer sandbar known for its breathtaking scenic walks.

The contestants’ journey to this point had been filled with exhilarating challenges and breathtaking landscapes, making it a truly unforgettable experience for both them and viewers.

Mayor Maja Tait expressed her gratitude on Twitter, thanking the Amazing Race Canada for choosing Sooke as a challenge and pit stop location. She appreciated the collaborative efforts of the production team, participants, and the local community in making the day truly amazing.

As the episode came to a close, a preview hinted that more Vancouver Island spots could be featured, including a possible visit to Langford.

So make sure to tune in next Tuesday, August 1st, to see which other hidden gems southern Vancouver Island had in store for the contestants.

The Amazing Race Canada’s connection with Victoria goes beyond this episode, as the region previously hosted the starting line of the show’s sixth season in front of the stunning Hatley Castle at Royal Roads University in Colwood back in 2018.
