The Jewel of British Columbia

Victoria, the capital city of British Columbia, sits on the southern tip of Vancouver Island off the west coast of British Columbia, Canada. Established in 1843 as a fur trading settlement by Hudson’s Bay Company, the vibrant city still reflects its historical past. This beautiful city is surrounded by water and mountains, offering breathtaking views in all directions.

Known as the ‘City of Gardens,’ one of Victoria’s most notable attractions is the world-famous Butchart Gardens. Other highlights include the Victoria Butterfly Gardens, the Fairmont Empress Hotel, plus a variety of quality museums, including the Royal British Columbia Museum.

Victoria is also a great place for whale watching, as the clear, nutrient-rich waters surrounding the island are especially attractive to Orca and other species of whale. And for more active visitors, Victoria is a beautiful place to enjoy hiking, biking, canoeing, or kayaking.
