Victoria’s outdoor environment is a perfect marriage of blue ocean and rolling gardens filled with bright flowers. A visit to the Butchart Gardens is a must for those with a penchant for flora and fauna, but if you’re the active type, try a walking or cycling tour around some of the city’s beautiful neighbourhoods.
Experience Victoria’s colonial charm with high tea, a serious affair that can stretch an entire afternoon and often involves scones and other delightful delicacies. Or take to a forested path in one of the provincial parks to explore a terrain less traveled, more rugged and utterly pristine. Out on the ocean, there’s kayaking, canoeing, sailing, boating, fishing, coldwater diving and whale watching adventures that can accommodate you and your wedding party. In short, you’re more likely to run out of time than of things to do in this City of Gardens.
