If you are looking for family fun in British Columbia, why not take a trip to Victoria's most fabled castle on the coast. The city feels like a quaint English town with many family attractions in easy walking distance to explore during your Victoria family vacation. Try a British Columbia whale watching adventure or explore Vancouver Island.

Your visit begins with a scavenger hunt around the property. Find the honeybees, explore the city and end with an in-room movie complete with refreshments.  In the morning take the family for breakfast before starting another exciting day in BC's capital city!

Did you know kids fly free on Helijet? See their website for more information.
