    Hike the Trails

    Hiking is a popular activity around Victoria, and you can be on the trails within a few minutes from almost anywhere. Thetis Lake Regional Park offers a 5km loop around two lakes with ample shade for hot summer days, while the Niagara Fall Trail in Goldstream Provincial Park features a 47.5-metre tall waterfall and 1.3km trail. If you’re looking for a bit more of a challenge, Mount Finlayson features a 4km loop in lush forest canopy with beautiful views at the top – and is located right near a golf course in Victoria BC – Bear Mountain Resort. Another local favourite is the Historic Kinsol Trestle in the Cowichan Valley, one of eight trestles along the route and one of the tallest free-standing timber rail trestles in the world. If you’d prefer to stay closer to downtown, find the best views of the city from Mount Tolmie.

    Just north of Victoria, the Malahat SkyWalk is one of the newest visitor attractions on Vancouver Island. Malahat SkyWalk offers the ultimate Island experience where explorers of all ages can enjoy breathtaking Vancouver Island views, and adventure high among the trees. The views alone make it one of the best things to do in Victoria, and certainly a must-visit for your Langford and Victoria golf trip.

    Mountain Biking Magic

    Add some adrenaline to your Langford and Victoria golf package! Stow your clubs and hit the trails that connect immediately beside the hotel when you stay at Bear Mountain Resort. Chosen by Cycling Canada as the High-Performance Training Centre for the National Mountain Bike Team, explore a network of intermediate to advanced west coast single track, sweeping flow lines, and scenic climbs appropriate for all skill levels. Book your stay at the Fairways Hotel on the Mountain at Bear Mountain for quick and easy access to the trails, as well as 36-holes at one of the best golf resorts in Canada.

    Inside Tip: If flat and scenic is more your riding style, book a stay at the Royal Scot, where you’ll have quick and easy access to the Scenic Waterfront and City Loop along Victoria’s waterfront.

    Spinnakers Brewpub, Victoria, BC | BC Ale Trail

    Explore the BC Ale Trail

    After a good hike or bike, nothing is more refreshing than a frosty beer. Luckily, you are perfectly poised to embark on a trail of a different sort – the BC Ale Trail. Here in the cradle of the craft beer revolution, you’ll find some of British Columbia’s most popular breweries, and you can take your time exploring the “Beer Mile,” featuring four brewpubs and four breweries all within Victoria’s Inner Harbour for an afternoon of craft discovery. There’s a long standing history of craft breweries in Victoria, and each brew is poured with pride!

    Prince of Whales Whale and Marine Wildlife Adventures, Victoria, BC

    Whale watching in Victoria can’t be beat – it’s one of BC’s top whale watching and wildlife viewing locations. Transient Orcas and Humpback whales make their way up the coastline between feeding and breeding grounds, while resident Orca pods, seals and seabirds are on display year-round. Prince of Whales Whale & Marine Wildlife Adventures offers a range of tours leaving right from Victoria’s inner harbour that include a whale sighting guarantee – if you don’t happen to spot a whale (95% of their tours do), you can join them on another whale watching tour. This guarantee is valid for a lifetime! Victoria whale watching is a must-add to your Victoria golf packages, it’s an intimate and iconic Vancouver Island experience that you’ll talk about for years to come.

    Insider Tip: A stay at accommodations in Victoria’s Inner Harbour, such as the Hotel Grand Pacific or the Inn at Laurel Point, will have you within walking distance of your tour, and you can watch the comings and goings from your hotel room!

    Delve into Local Flavours

    You’re never short for options with cafés and restaurants in Victoria, there’s more restaurants per capita here than any other city in Canada! Located conveniently en-route to the golf courses, Rhino Coffee House is one of the best places to visit in Langford. They have an extensive coffee and light foods menu for your way to the course, as well as cocktails and craft beers after your round!

    You would be remiss if you didn’t brunch at House of Boateng while on your Victoria golf trip. A seamless combination of flavours from West Africa, the Caribbean and Pacific Northwest, this beautiful little café in the heart of Langford is one of the best places to eat in Victoria and Langford.

    Insider tip: Just down the street from House of Boateng, the restaurant, is House of Boateng Fine Foods where you can pick up their signature sauces, book a private event, take a cooking class, and often meet Castro Boateng in the open-concept kitchen.

    This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is my new favourite golf course – I just love the layout. It’s really one of the prettiest golf courses I’ve played in my life, I’ll come back here on vacation, it’s that good.

    Scott McCarron, PGA TOUR Champion

    I always treat golf courses as how many poor holes there are. This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is a very good one. There’s not one poor hole on this golf course.

    Colin Montgomerie, PGA TOUR Champion

    Great job on the initial booking and subsequent changes requested. Easy check-in at the golf courses and the hotel made the trip hassle-free. Nice touch with the driving directions and discounts at recommended food and beverage establishments. Will definitely recommend your service to friends and business associates.
