Christmas in Victoria


Kick off the Christmas Season with a bit of British flair in beautiful Victoria, B.C. Twinkling lights replace hanging flower pots to illuminate the streets as you go store to store to find that perfect gift for a loved one… or yourself! All the highlights are included with plenty of free time to create your own experience. It’s truly a very special time to visit the quaint, yet lively little city on the picturesque Inner Harbour.

Daily Itinerary

Christmas cookiesDay 1

Fly to Victoria by way of Seattle arriving in late afternoon. A waterfront lunch is in Sidney, a little seaside resort town full of boutique shopping, numerous new and used bookstores, and a charming English Sweets shop. You’ll get an assortment of traditional goodies to take with you. After checking into your all-suite hotel, enjoy an included sunset cocktail and dinner atop the city with sweeping views of the harbor and surrounding Olympic Mountains.

Christmas tableDay 2

A narrated driving tour this morning gets you acquainted. Make note of the shops you want to visit! But first, warm up with a spot of tea, finger sandwiches and decadent petit fours at the famed Empress Hotel. It’s a meal fit for a queen! Learn about early Christmas traditions brought by immigrants at the award-winning Royal B.C. Museum, and stroll the lavishly decorated replica streets of Old Town Victoria. The remainder of the evening is yours to dine and shop as you wish. (FB,HT)

Butchart gardensDay 3

The majestic Legislative Building is your first stop this morning. Look up, up, up at the tree as it reaches from the first floor into the rotunda. Swing by one evening to see the building lit up in red and green! The afternoon is yours to enjoy. Arrive at the world-renowned Butchart Gardens at dusk and enjoy a three-course dinner in the original family home. Afterwards, grab a hot drink and head out into the twinkling wonderland. The 12 Days of Christmas are cheekily represented with lighted displays. Bring your imagination and good cheer! And your camera! (FB,D)

Merry ChristmasDay 4
