Victoria Airport facilities
The airport's single terminal has nine gates, with international passengers using gates 1-5. Complementary wireless internet is available across the terminal building. The airport is well-connected, with shuttle buses direct to many Victoria hotels. Direct access to Highway 17 however, means that many travellers compare car hire online well before they arrive here.
Victoria Airport excursions
One of the best ways to get some bearings around the city is by boarding one of the harbour ferries, while the more organised whale-watching excursions can be fascinating experiences. Victoria is one of Canada's greenest cities, with Butchart Gardens and Beacon Hill Park among the best open spaces. Farther afield, surfers will enjoy Tofino, a five-hour drive from the city.
Best time to visit
Famed for its mild climate, travellers can visit Victoria all year round. Boasting the lowest rainfall in this part of the country, as well as the longest hours of sunshine, the city is perfect for enjoying the outdoors. However, December and January can get a little chilly, with a decent chance of rain.
