Vancouver Island is worth the trip! In historic Victoria, admire the English colonial architecture and the spectacular Butchart Gardens. The fishing village of Tofino is perfect for hiking, surfing or… bear watching! It’s about three hours from downtown Vancouver.
The exciting American city of Seattle is only a two-hour drive from Vancouver. Kerry Park offers an unsurpassed view of downtown and Elliott Bay. Taste delicious seafood along the waterfront or discover the wine region of Woodinville.
A visit to Vancouver won’t be complete without a trip to the Rockies, located about 800 kilometres away, or an eight-hour drive. You can also explore them via Calgary, which is closer to the majestic mountains. Soak up the magical landscapes along the Icefields Parkway and head to the turquoise waters of Moraine Lake, and then to the Athabasca Falls, near Jasper.
