About Victoria

On a Clayoquot Sound, Vancouver Island kayaking trip






Victoria, British Columbia is located near the southern tip of Vancouver Island. This city is repeatedly called one of North America's most beautiful cities. Victoria has one of Canada's warmest climates and many plants are in bloom throughout the year in Victoria's countless breathtaking gardens. Within the city limits there are spectacular ocean and mountain views and there is quick access from the city to the great outdoors. Victoria's architecture and displays of native art tell the story of the city's rich history. While there is plenty of exploring to do within the limits of Victoria, those looking to explore Vancouver Island's unique temperate ecosystems further can consider a multi-day kayaking trip in some of the island's more remote areas.
