Experience Victoria, BC

Cycling, Sight Seeing, Hiking – Your Choice!


Thursday, June 15th – Sunday, June 18th

Lodging – your choice.  Trip leaders prefer the Royal Scot Suites near the Harbor – quaint, clean, and an excellent restaurant.  Make your own reservations now, availability becomes limited by mid April.

Transportation – choose the Coho ferry leaving from Port Angeles and going directly into Victoria Harbor or the Tsawwassen ferry south of downtown Vancouver arriving in Schwartz Bay (1/2 hour bus or care to Victoria).  Barry and Leslie will inform the group when and where they plan to leave if you would like to join them. 

Victoria is a beautiful city on the harbor with many activities possible.  We’ll plan to bike one day with other activities as we wish:

·       British Museum – cost is $17 with seniors $11

·       Art Galleries

·       Beacon Hill or Thunderbird walk abouts

·       Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse $3.90

·       Craigddaech Castle $10.32

·       Cycling on the bike dedicated mostly paved Galloping Goose trail 16 miles to Butchart Gardens with a $32 entry fee or go east to Sydney for lunch and sightseeing.  Traveling west will take you to glacially carved Sooke Potholes Park for lunch & hiking (Canadian law REQUIRES helmets)-this section includes hard packed dirt trails.  Cross bikes recommended.

·       And wine tasting 60 miles north in the Fraser Valley – 15 wineries for tasting & touring

Gather together Thursday night – 7:00 at the Empress Hotel to swap ideas for the weekend and meet at the Royal Scotsman Friday & Saturday morning at 8:30 am for breakfast and planning the day.
