Long-Term Winter Stay
A Mild Winter Climate
Victoria has a temperate climate that is usually classified as “marine west coast” with mild winters and relatively dry and mild summers. Victoria is also the driest location on British Columbia’s coast. Our city gets more sunny days than surrounding areas. With its mild temperatures and plentiful sunshine, Victoria boasts gardens that are home to many plant species rarely found elsewhere in Canada. The city takes pride in the many flowers that bloom during the winter and early spring. Every February there is an annual “flower count” in what, for the rest of the country and most of the province, is still the dead of winter. This unique climate has made Victoria the destination for people who wish to escape harsh weather and snow storms during the winter season.
