A less than three-hour scenic cruise on the Victoria Clipper lands you in the heart of Victoria, one of the most walkable cities in North America. Located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, this treasure of a town preserves the spirit of England with colonial architecture, an endless supply of lush gardens and a shimmering waterfront that houses an array of farm-to-table restaurants and boutiques filled with locally-produced goods.

Voted as #7 Top 25 Best Cities in the World by the 2016 Conde Nast Readers’ Choice Survey and ranked the 9th Best City in the United States and Canada by Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards in 2015, Victoria uniquely offers a mix of old-world charm and new world experiences. With endless quiet pathways, ample micro-breweries and an array of outdoor adventures, it’s easy to see why people regularly fall in love with Victoria.

The Butchart Gardens

No visit to Victoria is complete without exploring the world-renowned The Butchart Gardens

Created in 1904 as a labor of love by Jennie Butchart, who wanted to restore natural beauty to her husband’s mined-out industrial quarry site, The Butchart Gardens has since been delighting visitors from all around the world. Explore the 55-acre floral oasis, walk along intimate stone paths and streams lined with a colorful array of flowers and trees and surround yourself with more than 300,000 blooms!

The Butchart Gardens Holiday Lights Tour

The 55-acre grounds come a live  as thousands upon thousands of colorful lights illuminate everything from plants to pathways, with references to the 12 Days of Christmas in every display. Be sure to swing by the outdoor rink to glide underneath a canopy of lights while carolers will the air with classic Christmas tunes.
