An incredibly diverse ecosystem consisting of rainforests, marshes, meadows, beaches, mountains, oceans, rivers and lakes that create habitats for multitudes of wildlife species. In fact, the region is one of the world’s premier destinations for wildlife encounters, including birds, elk, bear and whales. Much of the island is protected as it contains pockets of old-growth fir and cedar forests, as well as, naturally occurring groves of Garry oak. The beauty and tranquility of this island also boasts an array of cafes, art galleries, studiosand shops selling the unique and local. Twice named “Best City in the Americas” since the year 2000, Victoria is one of the world’s favorite places.  Imbued with the beauty and amenities of a historic capital city blessed with magnificent nature all around, Victoria if full of life!  From superb cuisine, museums and galleries you have so much to see and do.  Victoria’s city layout is ideal for walking, stroll the Inner Harbor, sightseeing on foot and discovering the city’s colorful history. Heritage buildings, flower baskets hanging from lampposts and ocean and mountain views entice visitors down cobblestone sidewalks and pedestrian-friendly walkways.
