A flight to Victoria brings you to the Garden City

A flight to Victoria lands you in the capital of British Columbia, a city filled with stunning scenery and Victorian architecture. Located on the southern end of Vancouver Island, Victoria offers breathtaking sea and mountain views. Admire the rugged Pacific coast and spend your days at one of Victoria's many lakes, beaches and coves – you'll feel a strong pull to spend as much time as possible exploring every corner of the city.

Victoria, named after Queen Victoria, is one of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest. As you explore the city after landing from your flight to Victoria, you'll see well-preserved heritage buildings, mature trees and immaculately-manicured gardens. In the Inner Harbour, some of the city's most famous architectural landmarks can be found. Walk through the Fairmont Empress, an iconic chateau-style hotel built in 1908, to get a taste of opulence. A short walk away are the British Columbia Parliament Buildings, home to the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia. Completed in 1897, the Neo-baroque buildings are impossible to miss as you wander the Inner Harbour.

The interesting architecture isn't the only reason why you should board a flight to Victoria. Victoria's mild climate makes it perfect for year-round recreation activities – in fact, since it's located in a sub-Mediterranean zone, Victoria enjoys the mildest climate in Canada. No matter what you're interested in, it's very likely you can try or experience it here. Love to hike? There are many hiking trails with spectacular views and lookouts, like at Thetis Lake Regional Park and Mount Finlayson. Feel like getting out on the water?

Things to do in Victoria

There'll be plenty to do in the Garden City as soon as you land from your flight to Victoria.

Victoria is called the Garden City for a reason. Because of its year-round mild climate, plants and flowers thrive. There are several lush gardens in and around the city, ideal for leisurely walks or capturing colourful shots. The Butchart Gardens, just 30 minutes away from downtown Victoria, is the city's most prominent garden. With over 55 acres of gardens – which include Rose, Japanese and Mediterranean gardens – it won't be hard to spend a few hours here.

Take a deep dive into Victoria's history with heritage walking tours. Discover the Past Walking Tours offers a variety of walks that run from day to night. Stroll through downtown Victoria and learn about the city's history, its First Nations origins, and hear stories about famous people from the past. The company also runs ghostly evening tours for those looking to be spooked – learn about ghost encounters and true crime that have taken place in Victoria.

Check out the oldest Chinatown in Canada after your flight to Victoria BC. Victoria's Chinatown dates back to 1858 with the discovery of gold in the Fraser Canyon. A big wave of people immigrated to British Columbia from California, with one third of them being Chinese. They came to this area and began building what they could with materials available to them. Today, Chinatown is a popular attraction filled with restaurants, grocers and souvenir shops. It's also home to Fan Tan Alley, the narrowest street in Canada. Go for a stroll and pop into some of the many small, locally-owned shops.

You'll get a gorgeous view from above during your flight to Victoria BC, but why not see Victoria from the water? There are a variety of tour operators at Inner Harbour available for booking. For an even more memorable experience, book a whale watching tour for a chance to see these majestic mammals.

Whether you're interested in browsing art galleries or spending time at a cafe, Oak Bay Village is a must-visit once you land from your Victoria BC flight. The village stretches along Oak Bay Avenue with several locally-owned boutiques, restaurants and cafes. Before shopping around for souvenirs, fuel up with a hearty breakfast at Vis-à-Vis. The busting restaurant also has an exciting dinner and cocktails list.

Mark your calendar if you're flying to Victoria in the summer. From June to September, the Oak Bay Night Market takes the streets on the second Wednesday of the month from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The village transforms into a street market with European flair – hear performances by local musicians and shop for handcrafted goods made by local artists and artisans.

While you're at the marina, why not embark on a marine adventure? Sign up for a kayaking tour with Ocean River Sports to see Oak Bay's coastline. As you paddle the waters, you might even spot harbour seals and river otters at nearby islets. For a more relaxed day by the water, check out Willows Beach. It's the ideal place for a walk along the shore or a picnic by the sea.

Explore a vibrant waterfront community after your Victoria BC flight

Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf

Once you've landed from your flight to Victoria, make sure to check out Fisherman's Wharf. Located around the corner of Victoria's Inner Harbour, Fisherman's Wharf can easily be reached on foot from downtown.

As well as its colourful float homes, the vibrant community has a colourful history – it was once a shipyard with a large fishing fleet, and then became the Fisherman's Wharf in the late 1940s when fishing became vital to Victoria's economy after World War II.

The wharf was home to fishing vessels, plus a few float homes that were built on log rafts. With the fishing fleet shrinking over the years, the increased dock space made room for more float homes. Today, the community attracts tourists interested in seeing this unique pocket of the city.

Fisherman's Wharf is a great starting point for anyone interested in getting out on the water after their flight to Victoria. A few tour operators are based here, where you can go on fishing, whale watching or kayaking experiences.

The seafood scene is a big draw for tourists as well. You'll find incredibly fresh seafood at The Fish Store – with local species such as salmon, snapper and albacore tuna, the store has a great selection of in-season seafood available for purchase. They also have an on-site restaurant specializing in fish tacos, oysters, fish sandwiches and more. For the best of both worlds, check out Puerto Vallarta Amigos for seafood tacos and burritos.

There's no shortage of exciting sights and activities to experience when you land from your flight to Victoria.
