About these ratings

While you wouldn't normally relate Canada with the jungle, the tropical wetlands thrive in the Victoria Butterfly Gardens. Like its name suggests, this indoor facility is home to around 3,000 butterflies. But they aren't the only critters: The gardens also host a variety of birds and fish, including flamingos and koi fish. You'll find all of these creatures mingling amid the flora, creating a vibrant, colorful atmosphere.

Although many recent visitors wouldn't call the Victoria Butterfly Gardens a "must-see" attraction, most agree that it's worth stopping by if you have extra time. As one TripAdvisor user writes: "The butterfly garden will educate you extremely well about most of those critters in a short time. It was extremely interesting. The staff is well educated and friendly."

The Victoria Butterfly Gardens sits near the Victoria International Airport in Brentwood Bay, roughly 11 miles north of the Inner Harbour. The garden is open daily, although hours vary depending on the season. Admission is $15 CAD (about $15 USD) for adults and $5 CAD for children.
