What to Expect
Enjoy a feast for the senses on a half-day tour of the famous Butchart Gardens and Victoria Butterfly Gardens, just a 35-minute bus ride from Victoria. Discover the beauty of the gardens independently to maximize your experience.

During the coach transfer from Victoria, an experienced driver will provide you with an overview of Victoria’s history, past, present, and future. Upon arrival at Victoria Butterfly Gardens, experience the warmth, beauty and romance of a tropical jungle without going to the tropics.

Stroll through the indoor tropical wonderland, where Caribbean flamingos walk through the streams and ponds among beautifully colored koi, goldfish, jack dempseys, albino oscars, tetras, barbs, jaguar cichlids, plecos, Australian whistling tree ducks, and red-eared slider turtles.

Experience the climate-controlled environment (25 degrees Celsius and 80 per cent humidity) as you pass plants native to tropical rain forest environments. Stroll trails that meander past organic vanilla beans, papaya trees, pineapple, coffee beans, ginger, and many other foods of the world.

Continue to Butchart Gardens on the site of an exhausted limestone quarry. The 1st garden - the Sunken Garden - was built when the Butcharts hired a Japanese landscape architect to transform the quarry space into something beautiful. Explore the enchanting grounds by yourself, and enjoy a total sensory experience. Breathe in the scents of flowers that transform with the seasons. Enjoy a spectacular adventure whatever the time of year!
