Explore a garden like no otherVancouver, Canada

Lauded as one of the most beautiful of its kind in the world, the Buchart Gardens in Victoria is a must-do on any trip to British Columbia. Established in the early 1900s, the attraction is still owned by the same family – current owner and managing director Robin-Lee Clarke is the great-granddaughter of the founding couple. And the floral show is pretty impressive: each year over a million bedding plants in some 900 varieties offer uninterrupted bloom from March through October.

Upgrade your ride home – and make the most of the coast – by taking a floatplane back from Vancouver Island to the city. The 35-minute ride offers aerial views of Vancouver, the Gulf Islands and Victoria Harbour.
