The capital of British Columbia sits majestically on beautiful Vancouver Island. It is arguably one of Canada's most picturesque cities, with the surrounding area home to the dramatic mountain and ocean vistas. Adorned with flowers and colonial architecture, Victoria is a wanderer's paradise. It boasts colourful gardens, a lovely harbour, magnificent architecture, and a wealthy British ancestry glimpsed through tearooms, horse-drawn carriages, and double-decker buses.
The city is also a renowned international hub of culture, art and food. Admire the beauty of the ocean and reflect on the area's history as you explore this vibrant city where students and politicians alike get around by bike. Here is the gateway to southern Vancouver Island, a destination for food and wine touring, whale watching, and ocean adventures of all kinds.
