You'll travel by motorcoach to one of Victoria's most famous attractions - Butcharts Gardens! This beautiful garden which was once a quarry is a favorite stop for both visitors and locals alike. In December and early January tens of thousands of coloured lights combine with evergreen swags and wreaths of holly and winter berries to line the walkways and festoon lamp posts. Wander through the Magic of Christmas displays along colourfully lit walkways and the ever-popular Twelve Days of Christmas displays, that will put you in the Holiday Spirit. Within the Gardens you will find lively performances featuring traditional caroling and music, and enjoy some recreational ice skating on the outdoor ice rink!
It's a spectacular display of holiday cheer and a great way to spend the holidays with your family. Enjoy a walk through the park to take in the wondrous illuminations that only happen once a year.
