The Hill Top Tour
This tour is all about the ride. We start by going through the lush gardens of Beacon Hill park on our way to cruising along Victoria's famous coastal route: Dallas Road and Beach Drive. As we wind our way along Dallas, you'll get a chance to familiarize yourself with the charming and quaint neighbourhoods that capture the laid back feel Victoria is so well known for. Of course, this Mountain Tour is nothing without its Mountains; experience the breathtaking vistas that can only be found at the summit's of Mt. Doug and Mt. Tolmie, spots local Victorian's never get bored of.
|Beacon Hill Park: This beautiful garden is a serene place filled with wildlife. With peacocks and swans flitting about the park you can't help but smile and marvel at the natural beauty the park is so well known for.|
|Mt. Tolmie: A quick scoot up Mayfair drive brings you to the top of Mt. Tolmie, a popular spot for the locals and tourist. It may not compare to the Rockies, but it's certainly much easier to get to.
|Gonzales Hill: A hidden gem with multiple viewpoints, this lookout gives the viewer a picturesque glimpse of Victoria's world renowned coast line.|
|Mt Doug: With a cupola at the top, Mt. Doug is arguably Victoria's most impressive viewpoint. A variety of trails to choose from takes you to the summit; a vantage point that gives you a clear view of the surrounding islands and Mt. Baker, our local active volcano!|
