Getting to Victoria

Victoria is easily accessible from any arrival point, including the ferry terminals and airports.

Located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, BC’s Capital City is easily accessible by sea, air, or by land if you’re already on the Island. Airports and ferry terminals provide various points of entry to Victoria and the Island.

From the Victoria International Airport and Swartz Bay ferry terminal, Highway 17 (Patricia Bay Highway) becomes Blanshard Street and will take you directly into downtown Victoria. Highway 1, the Trans- Canada Highway, begins in Victoria, just south of the downtown core at the intersection of Douglas Street and Dallas Road. Highway 1 is a direct route from Victoria up the east coast of Vancouver Island to Nanaimo where the only marine link in the Trans-Canada Highway requires ferry travel to traverse to Horseshoe Bay on the mainland, connecting travellers to the Vancouver area.
