My husband and I will be taking a 10th anniversary trip to Vancouver in June. Our itinerary currently looks something like this:
6/2 Arrive Vancouver - travel to Vancouver Island (Nanaimo or Victoria)
6/3 - Depart for Tofino
6/3 - 6/5 Tofino at Long Beach Resort
6/5 Depart Tofino early for Vancouver
6/5- 6/8 Vancouver
6/9 Depart Vancouver
We may be able to extend our vacation beyond a week, but if we can't I'm worried that a day and a half in Tofino and 3 and a half days in Vancouver is trying to pack too much in to a small space. But I love the nature options Tofino has to offer and the look of the Long Beach Resort.
Are there any destinations closer to Vancouver than Tofino is - whether on VI, the Gulf Islands or in BC that can offer similar natural beauty/hiking/ocean access and high level accomodations as Tofino?
