Victoria, British Columbia, is a city brimming with a laid-back charm, natural beauty, and a rich cultural tapestry.

Nestled on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, this Canadian gem offers an abundance of amazing attractions to keep you entertained, no matter what type of traveler you are.

Things to do in Victoria BC

Now you know why Victoria is such a cool place to visit, let’s take a look at some of the top attractions so you can map out your itinerary…

Take a Pub Tour

Start with lunch at Spinnakers, Canada’s oldest brewpub, which deserves the pole position. A wide selection of great, house-made beer and great food coupled with one of the best views in the city seals the deal.

Visit The Waterfront Drive

You can rent a scooter down in Victoria’s Inner Harbor and then scoot, scoot, scoot your way along the waterfront. Simply keep the water on your right and it’s pretty hard to get lost.

Take A Ginnery/Cider House/Winery Tour

Victoria Spirits is housed in an old farm house on Old West Saanich Road. I call it a ‘ginnery‘ because that’s what they make; flavourful, herb infused gin (and because I don’t know what the real name for a ginnery is).

See the Salmon Spawning

Salmon return to their home rivers in the Fall in order to spawn the next generation, so if you happen to be visiting this time of year, then checking out the salmon spawning is one of the best things to do in Victoria BC in the fall.

Hike Mount Finlayson

Accessed through Goldstream Park, this hike up Mount Finlayson takes you up through the forest and onto rocky outcroppings where you’ll scramble to the top for some of the best views in the area.
