What to Expect
Learn how to ride a Segway on this 1.5-hour tour of the UBC Botanical Gardens. Enjoy the different gardens on this beautiful site. The Alpine garden is one of the largest in North America. The Asian garden has an area of 12 hectares, and contains collections of rhododendron species alongside woody and herbaceous plants from areas such as China, Korea, Japan and the Himalayas.
The canopy of native cedar, fir, and hemlock creates a favorable micro-climate that shelters shade-loving perennials, rare trees and shrubs, and lush ferns below, and climbing wisteria, rose, and clematis high above. The physic garden's design is based on a 16th century Dutch engraving, and it contains traditional medicinal plants from medieval Europe.
The Carolinian forest contains a diversity of trees and shrubs native to the hardwood forests of eastern North America. Enjoy all these gardens and more on your Segway tour. You'll be provided with a knowledgeable guide, and an unforgettable experience.
