Prince George to Vancouver Island?

My husband and I are visiting family in Edmonton. We're driving to Prince George and Vancouver for familyvisiting too and would like to know the distances from Edmonton to Prince George and from PG to Vancouver Island? We're travelling in August and have a rental car.

Thank you in advance!

Have a look at this Driving Distance Chart from the Ministry of Transportation.

Consider a reservation for the ferry when coming to or leaving Vancouver Island during August.

Or you can use a mapping site to plot your route (use the "directions" feature). I love zooming in using satellite view, and you can also use streetview to see things from street level (it's just like walking down the street) - www.maps.google.com

You could consider driving on to Prince Rupert, the ferry then gets you directly onto the North of Van Island .

Buccaneer Dave's links will help- it's called the 'Inside Passage' route, as he says booking is essential with a car on this route in August.
