The beautiful city of Victoria, on Vancouver Island, is an oasis of old-world charm and stunning, colourful gardens. Here, double-decker buses, horse-drawn carriages, formal gardens and afternoon tea are a way of life; and yet vibrant adventure, entertainment and nightlife are just around the corner. As a vacation destination, Victoria has something for everyone.
Nestled between mountains, old growth rainforests and the ocean, The City of Gardens is green and lush all year round. With its rich English heritage, the city has a profusion of gardens, museums and heritage sites – and the ocean is a haven for marine life and a popular destination for whale watching trips.
