Fairmont Empress Victoria 2 nights

With turn-of-the-century architecture and timeless beauty, the Fairmont Empress hotel offers a historic experience. Also on-site is Willow Stream Spa, chosen by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the top five spas in Canada.

A stunning ferry voyage from the mainland, Victoria has a dynamic blend of coastal beauty, historic charm and urban appeal. Set on the sparkling Strait of Juan de Fuca, at the southern tip of Vancouver Island, it offers breathtaking views of the water and Olympic Mountains. Stroll down cobblestone streets, explore the Inner Harbour, eat in celebrated restaurants and pubs, or take in the many attractions.
