Why We Love It

Victoria, the Capital city of British Columbia, is located on Vancouver Island and is known for its mild climate, lush and colorful gardens, solid castle architecture, and views of both the ocean and mountains. Mixing relaxation with outdoor adventure, the city is proud of its Inner Harbor, local wineries, unique golf courses, cyclist-friendly roads and trails, coastal water sports, and the iconic Empress Hotel. The city is also consistently ranked as one of the top islands in the continental U.S. and Canada.
