About Victoria

Victoria is the capital of British Columbia and undoubtedly one of Canada's treasures. Walking through the iconic Inner Harbour is an excellent introduction to the city and gives tourists a chance to glimpse the British Columbia Parliament Buildings. In addition to these impressive buildings, Craigdarroch Castle showcases the British-influenced architecture with a heavy dose of opulence.

Enjoy some of the best weather in Canada while experiencing Victoria’s wide-ranging and first-rate outdoor activities. These include tranquil walks through the world-renowned Butchart Gardens, breathtaking bike rides along the Galloping Goose Trail, and ventures into the open ocean on whale watching tours.

Stemming from its history under British rule, Victoria maintains a rich tea culture that finds expression in the many cafes and tearooms around the city. If you can get a reservation, steep yourself (and your teabag) in the ultimate afternoon tea experience at the exclusive Empress Hotel.

Despite its island geography, Victoria is well served by a wide range of transport links that connect the city to major national and international locations. Extensive bus routes and rail networks provide accessible transit across Vancouver Island. In addition, the Victoria International Airport and ferry services running to Vancouver and Seattle connect Victoria to the Canadian and U.S. mainland.
