Butchart Gardens
Experience the dazzling colours of nature in this idyllic corner of Vancouver Island. Over a century ago, Jennie Butchart began building what is now one of the world's premier floral show gardens. Divided into six areas, the lovingly curated Butchart Gardens features an extensive collection of rose varieties, a peaceful Japanese area and an abundance of exotic plants.

In addition to the castle museum, Hatley Park has three well-kept gardens and numerous forest trails to explore.

Always a pleasure to walk around the inner harbour and legislative building areas. A few buskers, and some folks selling their wares make a nice ambiance. Restaurants galore means that we can make varying choices for each meal. Varsha, east Indian restaurant was a great choice this trip.

Recommended in Victoria

Just get a map and head in a different direction each day - who knows what's around the next corner. Be open and accepting to all things - the sights, the sounds, the smells.
