Cruise passengers may arrive by sea, but because Victoria is Canada's Most Walkable City, they will want to explore by foot.
Situated on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is a vibrant harbour-side community with a gracious blend of old-world charm and contemporary comfort. Double-decker buses, carefully tended gardens, First Nations influences and striking shoreline views have earned this city global recognition for its ambiance and cultural diversity.

Cruise passengers can enjoy the world-famous Butchart Gardens, high tea at the Empress Hotel, horse-drawn carriage rides through the city's downtown core, and walking tours of Victoria's many historical sites.
There are plenty of entertainment options here with many pubs, theatres, nightclubs and museums. The rich diversity in landscape and mild climate also provide excellent opportunities for year-round outdoor activities.

Established in 1843 as a Hudson's Bay Company fort, the city, now the capital of BC, is proud of its British colonial heritage. The provincial Parliament buildings look out over the Inner Harbour and surrounding boardwalk. At dusk, these buildings light up the skyline with over 3,300 lights casting a warm and welcoming glow over the city.
