About Victoria...

2Most people when planning a trip to the Pacific Northwest include a visit to Victoria, the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Victoria has traditionally played upon Canada’s colonial roots and has been described as one of the country’s most English cities. It is, after all, the namesake of our 19th century queen. Aside from the English theme, modern Victoria is rich with cosmopolitan dining, great shopping, colourful nightlife, and culture.

Many people are unaware that Victoria’s climate is the mildest in Canada. Like Vancouver, Victoria largely escapes the harsh winters associated with the rest of the country. It also gets more sun than the mainland of Vancouver.

1Victoria is a city of gardens and beautiful vistas. It boasts a number of fine bed and breakfasts as well. A few highlights of Victoria include the famous Butchart Gardens, the BC Legislature Buildings, the grand old Empress Hotel, the tradition of High Tea, fine restaurants, and naturalist activities such as Whale watching. Victoria’s Inner Harbour is a delightful stroll on a warm summer’s day.

If you are planning a trip to Victoria, we can help. Whether you choose to take a one-day tour from Vancouver or enjoy a stay at one of the fine Bed and Breakfasts of our provincial capital, we can help.
