Information for Travelers
The city of Victoria, the capital of British Columbia and one of the most beautiful cities in Canada.
Away from the mainland, this city has the feel of a small town, but is home to a variety of attractions and things to do.
The city is ideal for outdoor activities thanks to its numerous green spaces.
At the heart of the city, for locals and tourists alike, is the Inner Harbor, dominated by the grandiose Empress Hotel, built in 1908 for the Canadian Pacific Railway.
This area is always full of visitors and locals enjoying the waterfront, particularly in the summer when restaurants open their patios for al fresco dining and street performers take to the sidewalks.
If you're looking for things to do, take in the incredible mountain and ocean views from walking trails in and around Victoria.
Victoria is one of the warmest places in Canada in winter and is a popular tourist destination for Canadians and international travelers alike, with things to do all year round.
The British colonial past is evident in the Victorian architecture that characterizes the city, including the majestic mansion of Craigdarroch Castle.
Victoria's lush gardens include the 55-acre Butchart Gardens with flower beds, statues, water fountains and a carousel.
Situated in a former quarry, Butchart Gardens offers a fabulous display of plants, trees and flowers.
Located on the outskirts of Victoria, the mild climate is perfect for changing seasonal views.
The British Columbia Province Museum and Archives is one of Canada's finest natural and cultural history museums, with many three-dimensional exhibits offering a feast of sights, smells and sounds.
Walk through a rainforest, see animals on west coast beaches and in tidal marshes, sit among aboriginal ceremonial poles and masks, walk through a large house, and learn about the struggles of First Nations peoples after European colonization.
