Planning a vacation to Greater Victoria on Vancouver Island?
We'll warn you now, you might not want to leave. Even with the world to choose from, Victoria is something truly special - Condé Nast Traveler has voted it one of the world's top ten cities to visit.
Framed by breathtaking snow-capped mountains and ocean views, Greater Victoria is more than just a pretty place. Your plans can be as diverse as you are. Enjoy a vibrant nightlife, boutique-style shopping, sip and savour local flavours, hold on for your life on a zodiac whale watching or ziplining through trees and absorb the wonders of a world-class museum. And don't forget to stop and smell the flowers in Butchart Gardens.
Extending your visit to other locations on Vancouver Island
will be well worth your while. Conde Nast ranked Vancouver Island
as the Top North American Island for seven years in a row! Visit Tourism Vancouver Island
to explore all the Island
has to offer.
And of course, the province of British Columbia offers endless holiday possibilities. After your stay in Victoria, find out about what the other areas of the province hold in store at Tourism BC
