Christmas Magic in Victoria

CHRISTMAS IN VICTORIA


Steeped in its own special Christmas traditions, and fully decked out for the season, few cities can boast the magical sights, sounds, and aromas of Victoria's Christmas wonderland. The journey begins with a ferry ride from Port Angeles to charming downtown Victoria, one of the most festive Christmas cities in Canada! You can snuggle up for a horse-drawn carriage ride through the Old City or go enjoy afternoon tea at the Pendray Tea House. Marvel at the awe-inspiring spectacle of a million twinkling lights at the world-famous Butchart Gardens Christmas Magic display.

Every Christmas, The Gardens are decorated with over 1 million twinkling lights in splendid displays throughout the 55-acre property. Stroll through and see the magnificent Twelve Days of Christmas display. There's even an 5,000 square foot outdoor skating rink, a merry-go-round and Christmas carollers singing to classic Christmas carols!
 
We offer shuttle transportation from downtown Victoria to The Gardens 3 times daily throughout the Christmas Magic season, so there's no need to bring your own car. 

Once you are done exploring The Gardens, arrive back in downtown Victoria and enjoy a restful sleep with one of our hotel packages.
