Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Victoria, BC, Canada your home away from home

Victoria is a delightful Victorian city on Vancouver Island. Proud of its British heritage, this busy port city has retained its colonial character in the architecture and gardens. Victoria makes an ideal base for exploring this scenic, sparsely populated island.

Things to Do in Victoria, BC

Walking tours and horsedrawn carriage rides are an excellent way to admire the beautiful architecture in Victoria, such as the ivy-clad Empress Hotel and the Clock Tower. A boat trip from the inner harbour is a good way to enjoy the scenery and wildlife and trips visit the nearby Gulf Islands. Whale watching trips are available along with kayaking, sailing and fishing trips. Visitors can even go diving from Sidney-by-the-Sea just north of Victoria holiday rentals. The island has many stunning beaches, and although it is often too chilly for swimming, surfing and long beach walks are popular. Inland hikers can explore the Cowichan Valley and Strathcona Provincial Park a little further away.

Places to Visit Around Victoria, BC

Places to visit around Victoria include the Royal British Columbia Museum which has three galleries laid out telling the story of BC history. One of the most popular places to visit from Victoria holiday apartments is the Butchart Gardens. These stunning gardens are laid out in a former quarry and are easy to reach by bus or on a tour. The Abkhazi Gardens took 40 years to create and have stunning views across the Strait of Juande Fuca to the Olympic Mountains in Washington State, USA.
