Victoria's Inner harbour

Why Visit Victoria?

Victoria feels like a bit of Britain, with the same temperate climate , lots of pubs clustered around the Inner Harbour, and High Tea. The city is the western terminus of the Trans-Canada, and prizes its proximity to pretty Oak Bay, Brentwood Bay's Butchart Gardens, and rugged Sooke to the west. This city is the jumping off point to visiting the rest of Vancouver Island, with its lowland wineries, its interior forests, and Tofino's west coast waves and whalewatching.
