About this Trip
Experience an unforgettable night of spectacular displays with an overnight getaway to Victoria and The Butchart Gardens Night Illuminations Tour. See hundreds of sparkling lights transform the grounds into a glittering fairyland and the popular Ross fountain comes to life with creative lighting effects. Be sure to stop by on Saturdays in July-early September as array of breathtaking fireworks light up the night sky. Kids are half-price adult fare.
Depart from Pier 69 on the downtown Seattle waterfront and arrive in the heart of the charming city of Victoria a little less than three hours later. Spend the afternoon exploring Victoria and check into your hotel before boarding a motor coach in the evening for The Butchart Gardens. Wander through the grounds as hundreds of hidden lights transform the famous landscape into a glittering wonderland and watch as the Ross fountain dances with creative lighting effects.
In the morning, grab brunch at one of Victoria’s outstanding restaurants and use the rest of the day to explore the quaint city of Victoria before enjoying a tranquil cruise back to Seattle in the evening. Picnic in Beacon Hill Park, say “hello” to the harbor seals at the popular Fisherman’s Wharf, learn more about the region’s history at the Royal BC Museum, explore the stunning Craigdarroch Castle or discover a few of our other favorite activities:
