Experience Canada’s most English city

Sitting at Mile 0 of the Trans-Canada Highway, Victoria is your entrance way to the beautiful province of British Columbia. Located on Vancouver Island’s Saanich Peninsula, this picturesque city framed by the Olympic Mountains offers quaint, English architecture fringed by some of the tallest and oldest trees in the world.

Victoria, once a sleepy ocean side city, has undergone a transformation over the years. Adding to its natural beauty and traditional English architecture, is a new crop of brightly painted bohemian shops, trendy cafes, and cutting-edge restaurants. With a warm, temperate climate, Victoria has adopted a hearty food truck and street food culture. Savor fresh seafood, Asian snacks, and an array of micro-brewed craft beers. As the capital of the province, Victoria offers a plethora of cultural venues. Visit the Royal BC Museum to see a woolly mammoth exhibit, a collection of First Peoples artifacts, and a display that brings to life the colonial past of Victoria.

Separated from the U.S. by the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Victoria is a haven for marine wildlife. Take a whale watching tour along the Salish Sea to spot orcas, humpbacks, minke, and gray whales as they navigate the waters of the North Pacific. Kayak along the coast and lookout for elephant sea lions and seals —even bald eagles circling above. Back on dry land, there's much to explore. With more cycle routes than any other Canadian city, Victoria is a great place to reduce your carbon footprint. Bike, take a pedicab or walk the city streets, taking in sights like the elegant Craigdarroch Castle, the lush and storied Beacon Hill Park, and the ornately turreted Parliament building. Visit Canada’s oldest Chinatown, learn about its history, and peruse its shops and restaurants. Enjoy high tea, an English tradition, at the famous Fairmont Empress Hotel and cap off your day with a leisurely stroll through Butchart Gardens—home to more that 50 acres of beautiful floral landscapes inspired by different regions of the world.
