Victoria holidays

The capital city of British Columbia, Victoria was established in 1843 by James Douglas as a fort for the Hudson’s Bay Company. The city’s British ancestry is still apparent in the double-decker buses, historic buildings, horse-drawn carriages, formal gardens, and tearooms as well as being home to some of the most fascinating museums in Western Canada. Not far from the ocean or mountains, Victoria benefits from one of Canada’s mildest climates, which allows its residents to pursue an outdoor lifestyle all year round. During a stay in Victoria we recommend visiting the Butchart Gardens, Thunderbird Park with its impressive display of totem poles and the Royal BC Museum, which showcases the fascinating anthropological history of British Columbia.
