Experience the wildlife and seascapes of British Columbia. Beginning in Vancouver, you will take the scenic ferry across The Strait of Georgia to Vancouver Island. Highlights include climbing into the rugged Malahat highlands, driving the Island Highway with easy access to the islands beaches and Provincial Parks such as Morton Lake, Elk Falls and Miracle Beach. You will be able to buy fresh seafood to BBQ at your chosen campsite and when you reach Port Hardy on Vancouver Island you can spot killer whales, dolphins and seals from the shore.
The itinerary below is just a suggestion for your motorhome holiday - you are free to choose where and when you stop. You select your own campsites – in high season you’re advised to book these early, but outside of peak times you can usually leave yourself with the flexibility to adapt your itinerary as you go – if you totally love a place, then why not stay another night?
This itinerary has been designed for you to explore Vancouver Island over the course of a week, but you may want to add this to a flydrive holiday around the Rockies and National Parks staying in hotels and lodges such as the Great Parks of the West or a perhaps a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer train such as the Rockies Highlights.
