Victoria is a charming old city on the south tip of Vancouver Island in Canada and is the capital of British Columbia. It sits on the edge of an island packed with pine covered trees, a spectacular harbour area, picturesque floating houses in Fisherman’s Wharf and amazing natural scenery. The distance from Victoria Airport to Downtown Victoria is 26km. Victoria enjoys a temperate Mediterranean climate, with comfortable, dry summers and mild winters that rarely sees temperatures fall below freezing.
Victoria has an abundance of marine wildlife and nature. Take a trip on a whale watching boat tour from Victoria harbour to see the orca whales swimming around Vancouver Island. The best time to spot some whales is during the summer months of May-October, during the salmon migration. The harbour is a beautiful place to see the boats, with cruise ships sailing in and out regularly. You can hop on a ferry to various parts around the harbour and get a taste of city life on land and sea with a walk along the waterfront, especially at Fisherman’s Wharf where there are food stalls, souvenir shops and colourful floating homes. You can also visit British Columbia Parliament Buildings and take a guided tour around the historic architectural style buildings.
