Surrounded by ocean and snow-capped mountain ranges, it's easy to see why the Victoria area is popular with local and visiting hikers.
The Greater Victoria area is home to more than 60 provincial, regional and municipal parks which makes hiking not only easy and accessible but provides a range of terrain and difficulty to suit every level of trail blazer. Be prepared to compete against hardcore locals on some of the more challenging vertical routes like Mount Finlayson and Mount Douglas.
The city's mild climate makes hiking popular year round. The rainforest canopy of parks, such as Goldstream Provincial Park, provide cool temperatures even on the warmest of summer days, while finding a sunny spot along one of the many rocky outcrops warms up hikers during cooler months making for an ideal winter picnic spot.
