Inclusive Travel in Victoria, BC

We welcome all travellers and take great pride in a diverse community that embraces the LGBTQ2* community, welcomes new friends and celebrates our shared humanity. From its rankings as Canada’s Most Romantic City, Travel + Leisure’s Top 50 Places to Visit in 2023 to Condé Nast’s ranking as the #1 city in the world, clearly, we are one-of-a-kind. We live a bit differently, we do business a bit differently, and we put love before all else.

Victoria welcomes all with arms wide open—it’s not just something we say, but reflected in what we do and how we do it. #LoveIsWelcomeHere

Our LGBTQ2* community lives, works and plays throughout the city. You’re welcome to stay anywhere, but you may also choose from the Travel Alternatives Group (TAG) list of approved accommodations.

Love is Welcome (and strongly encouraged!) Here

We’re so glad you’re here or looking to visit. Now let’s get you booked and help you find some exciting things to do while you’re here. We look forward to seeing you and promise to give you the royal treatment when you arrive.
