My wife and I are planning a trip to Vancouver, and would like to see the Salmon Run and Grizzlies. Thought of Vancouver Island (Port Hardy and Campbell River?) but are unsure of the best places to go to maximize this dream vacation. Have been to Canada before and done the Calgary Stampede to Banff, Jasper, Whistler, Vancouver but not Island. So looking for God Made Wonders and Bears, safely. Need some information about Vancouver Island and things to see and do. Planning on 3 to 4 weeks and hiring a car, but remain flexible. My wife has a slight disability, therefore walking great distances of more then a kilometer or more would be a hassle.
The budget is roughly $300 per day plus or minus, including car hire, not sure if that is possible.
