Your guide to Victoria

Victoria, British Columbia

Victoria lives up to its nickname as Canada’s City of Gardens: Green spaces and manicured parks thrive in the seaside capital of British Columbia, where the nation’s mildest weather makes outdoor excursions popular year-round. Hikers, cyclists, and runners find a lot to love in the little city center as well as the surrounding wild areas of Vancouver Island, known for temperate rainforest and driftwood-strewn beaches. Victoria balances its rugged side with a stately downtown famous for a blend of cultures and visible British influences — think double-decker buses, pubs serving fish and chips, and plenty of buildings that mimic castles.


How do I get around Victoria?

Major airlines fly into Victoria International Airport (YYJ), which is about 15 miles north of downtown Victoria on the Saanich Peninsula. Vancouver, the largest Canadian city on the West Coast, lies 75 miles northeast. Ferries from Vancouver — as well as Seattle and Port Angeles, Washington — offer daily service to Victoria’s Inner Harbor.

You don’t need a car to explore the central city, which is fun to navigate on foot and by bike. Rideshare services and BC Transit buses connect downtown to surrounding communities such as Oak Bay, Esquimalt, and Langford. For easy day trips into Vancouver Island’s great outdoors, you’ll need to rent a car or join a guided coach tour.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Victoria?

In late spring and summer, Victoria experiences a Mediterranean climate, making these typically dry and sunny months the peak times to stay in one of the area’s vacation rentals. Spring temperatures reach average highs of 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The breezy coastal weather keeps the temperatures cool from June to September, with highs in the upper 60s and the occasional warm spell climbing into the low 80s. Pack layers in the warmer months, as the evening air often gets chilly.

Rainfall increases through the fall as temperatures drop to the 40s and 50s Fahrenheit. The average high in January is 47 degrees, meaning winter is quite drizzly but somewhat mild. Take a cue from the locals and bring waterproof jackets, fleece shirts, and warm shoes. An umbrella is also a wise idea in the unpredictable cooler months.


What are the top things to do in Victoria?

Inner Harbour

The Inner Harbour area is the primary district for sightseeing in Victoria. Here you find many of the capital’s most-photographed landmarks including the impressive neo-baroque British Columbia Parliament Buildings. The acclaimed Royal British Columbia Museum is notable for its exhibits on First Nations culture as well as the native plant gardens on its grounds.

Beacon Hill Park

For a breath of salty ocean air, head to this waterfront park, which sprawls out over 200 acres in downtown Victoria. Explore the landscaped gardens with fountains and ponds, hiking trails, and pebble beaches.

Butchart Gardens

Opened in 1904, this 55-acre cluster of world-renowned gardens — ranging from Japanese to Italian styles — welcomes more than one million visitors annually. The 15-mile trip from Victoria’s Inner Harbour rewards you with nearly one thousand varieties of flowers, with the countless summer blossoms and evening concerts drawing the largest crowds.
