With a nod to British Columbia’s English settlers, Victoria is filled with gardens and leafy seafront parks, stately hotels and museums, bohemian eateries, and craft breweries.

Between Victoria and Nanaimo on the east coast of Vancouver Island, the Cowichan Valley enjoys Canada’s warmest mean temperature and is a haven for birdwatching, outdoor activities, and exploring local farmers markets. On the west coast, near Sooke, you’ll find windswept beaches and salmon fishing opportunities minutes from the dock.

Victoria & Southern Vancouver Island

Victoria is the gateway to southern Vancouver Island, a destination for food and wine touring, whale watching, and ocean adventures of all kinds.
