Winter has arrived but that doesn’t mean you have to stay cooped up inside. In fact, there are plenty of exciting activities you can do in Victoria all winter long. From an exciting art exhibit at the Royal BC Museum to a peaceful hike that will help you relax and recharge, check out this list of the top three things to do in Victoria this winter.

 

Get Takeout From Your Favourite Restaurant

Just because the pandemic is still going on, doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in food from your favourite restaurants. If you don’t feel like dining in, plenty of the top restaurants in Victoria are now offering both takeout and delivery. For example, Pagliacci’s, Thai Green Elephant Restaurant, and Nubo Japanese Tapas all have their delicious cuisine available to be delivered right to your door.

 

Check out the Emily Carr Exhibition at the Royal BC Museum

There are only a few days left to check out the Royal BC Museum’s latest exhibition, entitled Emily Carr: Fresh Seeing - French Modernism and the West Coast. This exhibition highlights the work of famed Canadian painter Emily Carr, focusing on the time she spent in France and the years following when she returned to British Columbia. A variety of landscapes are depicted in these paintings, from the French countryside to the shores of Haida Gwaii.

 

Go For A Winter Hike

Thankfully, the winter weather in Victoria stays pretty mild. This makes it easy to continue doing your favourite outdoor activities, like running, golfing, or hiking, year round. We recommend picking a sunny day and going for a peaceful hike. Some of our favourite spots include Mount Tolmie and Mount Douglas in nearby Saanich, the Niagara Falls Trail in Goldstream Provincial Park, and Mount Finlayson in Langford. 

 

If you plan on being in Victoria this winter, then you’ll want to book a room at the 

Best Western Carlton Plaza Hotel. Just a short distance from some of the best winter attractions in the city, we combine quality service and luxe amenities with an unbeatable location in Victoria.
