The capital city of British Columbia, and on Vancouver Island’s southern tip, Victoria is a city that is full of life; surrounded by epic scenery and blessed with a fascinating history.
From its quaint harbour to its high street of boutique shops, this is a city made for walking, where you can happily wander with your camera in hand, stopping to rest and enjoy a traditional afternoon tea or local craft beer.
A few of our ‘must-visits’ include the Butchart Gardens – an amazing 55 acres of fragrant, seasonal gardens which are illuminated at night. There are a plethora of adventurous activities on offer, favourites include seaplane scenic flights, whale watching and zip lining in Sooke 45 minutes away from Victoria.
This is also a city made for foodies, with an exceptional array of eateries to choose from. We recommend the Il Terraza Victoria for its scrumptious Italian menu. The best dining venues in Victoria book up quickly though, so reservations are a must.
