4 days on Vancouver Island

I will be travelling to Vancouver Island from April 3rd until April 7th. Any suggestions on an itinerary? Besides Victoria, what else should we see?

Vancouver Island is a two week destination all on its own. You really haven't given us much to go on, although the time of year and the length of the visit will make a lot of decisions for you. Perhaps you should start by getting some ideas from the tourism website, or just read past posts here to get a sense for what other people have done and what might interest you. I try to avoid mind-reading...it never works anyway.

4 days could be spent just in Victoria. What do you like to do? Are you outdoorsy? Like cycling or kayaking or shopping? The more details you provide, the better the suggestions will be. The Island is so big that 4 days will be a difficult itinerary for more than 1 area.

Hi Lishy and welcome to the forum!

I wonder if you are coming on the Victoria Clipper? or travelling by and using a car when you are on the Island? Where will you be going after the Island? Will you have a car or take Victoria Clipper?

I would say with a day for travel at the beginning and end, you have 3 full days. This could all be done in Victoria with a day trip on the Pacific Marine Circle tour:
