Best time to visit Victoria

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. For a touch of Scotland, visit the city in May and catch the Victoria Highland Games in Topaz Park. 

Driving tips in Victoria

Victoria is located on Vancouver Island, a destination with many attractions to explore. To travel from Victoria to Port Hardy at the northern tip of the island will take more than five hours. Take extra care on back roads in the region which may be more challenging, particularly through the winter months.
