BC’s capital city is a home to outdoor lovers. Gardeners, adventure sports enthusiasts and artists with an appreciation for the beauty of nature all call this port town home. Downtown Victoria is built on a gorgeous harbour, making for easy access the wonders of the Pacific ocean and the Georgia Strait, and the glories of Vancouver Island are all a short drive away.
What’s more, we celebrate this connection with plenty of fantastic events designed to make your connection with the natural world deeper. Here are a few events we’re looking forward to!


Time’s running out for this spectacular exhibit! Every year the Royal BC Museum runs this fan-favourite event, where photographers from around the world submit their best work for display. These gorgeous photos are enlarged and backlit, and accompanied by informative interpretive statements that explore the stories behind the gorgeous images that you are seeing. This exhibit has been running for several months now, but it’s coming to a close on April 2. Make sure to get in before the finish line!
