Description

Weave your way along Victoria’s picturesque streets by bicycle as you learn about the history of British Columbia’s charming capital on this 2-hour tour. Explore neighborhoods like Fernwood, Chinatown and Cook Street Village; cruise along  bike paths through parks such as Beacon Hill and Moss Rock; and pass by the glistening waters of the buzzing Inner Harbour. See Craigdarroch Castle, one of the tallest totem poles in the world and Victoria’s famous breathtaking architecture. This ride will show you why Victoria is one of the most bike-friendly and most livable cities in Canada.

Meet your guide and pick out a cruiser bike that’s a good fit, strap on your helmet and embark on a 2-hour journey exploring Victoria’s flat to rolling terrain. Pedal your way through the city’s diverse landscape and neighborhoods while listening to your informative guide detail the history behind the iconic buildings. Downtown, you’ll cruise along the bustling Inner Harbour, where you’ll watch seaplanes come in for a landing on the glassy waters. Then you’ll venture through the iconic Gates of Harmonious Interest, the entrance to the second oldest Chinatown in North America. Victoria’s Chinatown is a designated National Historic Site.

Decide for yourself if the beautifully eerie Craigdarroch Castle is truly haunted or not. The historic, 39-room, Scottish Baronial mansion, built in the late 19th century, has made star appearances in movies such as Little Women.

Relax on the leisure paths through Moss Rock Park and along the scenic Dallas Road waterfront. In Beacon Hill Park, you’ll see a totem pole that towers to an astonishing 127 feet and 7 inches (39 meters); when it was erected, in 1956, it was the tallest in the world. See what local living is like in quaint residential neighborhoods like Cook Street Village, which is lined with overflowing horse chestnut trees and small mom-and-pop shops.

Gaze at the old houses and tree-lined streets that fill Fernwood, one of Victoria’s most charming neighborhoods. It’s home to many artists and families that congregate in the dynamic community square, giving this area a pulsing sense of character and a touch of quirkiness.

When the tour ends, your guide can recommend great local restaurants for lunch on your own.
