A Rainy Day Guide to Indoor Fun

Did you know that Victoria is the 4th rainiest city in all of Canada? We absolutely did- and it means we have some of the best indoor based activities for those days that you want to leave the kayaks at home, and cozy up for some fun. We have compiled a list of the best activities that our staff and friends love to do in Victoria when the weather is just a little too blue for our liking.

Axe and Grind

Axe and Grind has been bringing this classically Canadian backyard sport indoors so you can experience something new with friends. An experienced staff member will coach you on how to throw axes or knives in a safe manner, and then it’s time to unleash your inner lumberjack down one of their throwing lanes!
