By Canadian standards, Victoria has quite a mild climate. The city enjoys warm temperatures in summer and many hours of sunshine. Rainfall is more frequent over the winter months, and temperatures cool down. If you are planning to visit the city over winter there will be plenty of events to keep you busy. The Victoria Film Festival is just one of the exciting events during this period, attracting movie fans from across the country.

    Feedback: When making a one-way booking, it would be good if the one-way fee was explicitly stated - especially if it's $0. Otherwise I'm left wondering if I'm gonna be dinged with a one-way fee later ....
