Leaf Peeping

Goldstream Provincial Park offers trails filled with fall foliage. Wander through its trails to take in its majestic waterfalls and wildlife. Or head to the Gardens at Horticulture Centre of the Pacific, located just 20 minutes from downtown Victoria, to see vibrant leaf colors on the more than 103 acres.

 

In its peak bloom in the fall season, Butchart Gardens’ Japanese Garden erupts into bright hues across its acer plants and Japanese maples. Between September and October, Butchart Gardens’ 700 dahlias, field nursery and greenhouses of orange, yellow and bronze chrysanthemums burst into great hues.

Salmon Run

Millions of salmon make their way up streams, creeks and rivers of the Pacific Northwest between mid-October and early December, journeying back to their home pools where a new batch of salmon will soon emerge. Witness this natural phenomenon at Victoria’s Goldstream River, where salmon can be spotted for about nine weeks. Visitors can also support nature education at Goldstream Nature House through its Salmon Run 5k on Oct. 17.
