What can you Tell me About Victoria?
It’s said that Victoria has the most northerly Mediterranean climate in the world and one look at Butchart Gardens shows you why. The whole city is wonderful with attractive buildings and plenty of parks and gardens usually filled with city workers enjoying the sunshine. It is cosmopolitan and offers a wide range of experiences for the traveller.

View of Victoria

How do I get to Victoria?
There are two ways to get to the city; by plane or by ferry. Plane is the quickest way in but by ferry from Vancouver, Seattle or Port Angeles allows you to see whales feeding and the mountains that back Vancouver. The airport takes mainly domestic and US flights from west coast cities and also has a lot of charter flights to Mexican holiday destinations like Cancun and Los Cabos.

What Should I See or Do in Victoria?
The highlight of Victoria is Butchart Gardens which has subtropical specimens set in a former quarry. At night, see the gardens illuminated and enjoy the regular firework displays on summer evenings.

You can go whale watching offshore using one of the many boat companies that can be found in the port. Mountain biking on the Galloping Goose Trail is also very popular and if you don’t have your bike with you, there are plenty for hire.
