Outdoor Recreation

Fresh air, exercise, community-building, a little traveling & reconnecting with nature ... 

The City of Victoria wishes to provide quality outdoor pursuit opportunities for everyone. We offer a sampling of programs for youth, adults, women only and parent and tot. The programs are geared for all levels of experience, from beginners to advanced, realizing that people come in all shapes, sizes and abilities.

Enjoy time with friends, new friends and community as we explore together! From theatre to wildlife, history to vineyards, we have many opportunities to learn, travel, and enjoy Vancouver Island together and experience new places and sights. Check out all the upcoming opportunities:
