Vancouver Island Fly Drive The Highlights
The title says it all really. Vancouver Island is the size of England and like England has a great variety of scenery. You will see quite a lot of it on this 7 night tour which makes a great add-on to an Alaskan cruise.
You will have time to enjoy both Victoria, British Columbia's capital and the joy that is Tofino on the west coast. With its crashing surf, calm bays, rainforest and wildlife - Tofino will be a true highlight of your holiday.
Here's a day-by-day guide to your itinerary. Feel free to ask us to add other days or ideas and excursions by adding them to your wishlist, so we can give you the best price.View full itinerary
