About HikeVictoria
Experience the natural beauty of Victoria with a local photographer and long time resident, as he shares with you his favourite vistas and Victoria's hidden gems. Our Natural Beauty Tour offers stunning scenery at 8 stops along our gorgeous coastline (you just have to be able to walk up slight inclines comfortably) - the first stop is only 7 minutes from your downtown hotel, and is among the best value of any Victoria Tour. Our Hike to the Top of Gowlland Tod Park is best short Hike in the area as the views are so spectacular - its moderate in difficulty, but we have had a 3 year old and a 78 year old do it, so you can too! Each tour includes door to door service from your hotel, snack, water, and a professionally taken photo (emailed).

I had the pleasure of interacting by email with Mark Vukobrat, the tour operator for Hike Victoria. I had initially consulted him about his tour but he helped me to plan my vacation time in Victoria and on the island! Because he enjoys helping others and knows so much about Vancouver island, I have no doubt that Hike Victoria is a well managed tour company. I am sure, that he would go out of his way to give visitors a great experience on tours as he did for me!

I'm sure you will enjoy it immensely - have an amazing time, and don't hesitate to contact me if you need more information. Best, Mark

A beautiful soft, misty, warm day with many birds and green grass everywhere. A gem of a park in the center of town wit a beautiful view of the ocean.

Mark was an excellent guide. The hike was breathtaking - I was visiting Victoria for work and had a spare day to explore - this was a perfect choice. I highly recommend taking advantage of this opportunity if you are there.

Last week, November 21, 2019 I hiked up the Top of the Gowland Tod Hike with Mark. I am an avid hiker and have hiked across very beautiful terrain around the world but nothing so far has been as majestic and breathtaking as this hike. Mark was extremely knowledgeable, took his time with me and just showed me 7 or 8 breathtaking spots/ lookouts. I highly recommend this hike with this company, Hike Victoria to anyone visiting Victoria and really wants to appreciate its beauty. If you are not a local, I would not recommend doing this on your own.

My husband and I spent a couple nights in Victoria at the end of a 10 day holiday in Vancouver BC. Mark's half day tour was definitely a highlight of our trip. He is warm, relaxed and extremely knowledgeable. He's also passionate about Vancouver Island and the natural world. Having the chance to experience a salmon run was beyond incredible. ..their spectrum of activity -swimming, spawning and eventually dying was quite humbling to witness. We also saw eagles in the wild as well as a lovely a lookout point and waterfall in the area. Being short on time this was a real treat. He limits numbers in his group making it feel personal. We thank him so much for this truly memorable experience.
