Pick your interest. If you aren't into plants and trees and only see the surface in a glaze then an appreciation of the elemental kingdom that has been created at the Glacier Gardens may not appeal to you. I delighted in the beautiful, happy flowers and their spell binding power to pull me into their world. The ride through the... More

This was part of a cruise line shore package excursion but was not worth the price. Yes it was peaceful but no really interesting points to the short garden walk. Morning tea was disappointing, would not recommend this tour to most people apart from travellers who can't participate in any other tours. Owners need to invest money into their enterprise... More

This is a not to miss if you love beautiful flowers , nature and the rain forest all in one . Felix our guide/driver was very friendly and knowledgeable . Beautiful views from the top. Well worth the fee to spend time here.

Pulled into the garden and was immediately accosted by the owner to pay her $25 for pulling in. Being approached in this way I immediately tried to leave and she was belligerent. After leaving I called to complain, thinking that it was just an over zealous employee and we had wanted to see everything they had to offer. The woman... More

I found Jane and Jeff Svinicki's rainforest Garden to be enchanting. It is a little piece of heaven and a must for plant and vegetation lovers. Jane who carved out the meandering path of this lovely garden is a consummate hostess and her husband Jeff gave an interesting lecture at the end of the self guided walk. The walk which... More

Not worth it. This was part of a package that was grouped with the a glacier and tramway pack and if not for this we wouldn't have done it. Even so it wasn't worth it. The gardens aren't that impressive and you're forced to be there for close over an hr. The garden track itself is short and it's too... More

We drove all the way out there (lovely drive), but for some reason they had closed early that day. We were very disappointed. I guess you should call first to make sure they are open.

I wouldn't go out of your way to visit this place but if it's part of an excursion as mine was in sure most people would enjoy. Plenty too see in this 20 minute walk from wild flowers to moss covered forests, beat signs, statues and more. The owners are a very nice couple who treat you to light snacks... More

It was fun to take a self-guided tour through a real forest/garden where the many flowering plants and lots of trees are labeled and the stream had salmon spanning.

Many interesting plants. Examples are marked with numbers and a brochure giving details about the plant is kept current for what is growing or in bloom. Nice walk, not too far or too difficult.
