I am planning a trip with two friends to Vancouver / Tofino / Whistler in late March. We have never been, so we are looking for any recommendations!
I am also a little concerned that our itinerary (below) is too ambitious. I wish we had an extra day to work with, but schedules do not allow. Any advise is welcome and appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
March 20: Fly - arrive in Vancouver at 9:30pm. Rent car and spend night near hotel.
March 21: Depart early for Tofino (approx 6 hour trip) – arrive late afternoon. Spend night in Tofino.
March 22: Whale Tour, hiking. Spend night in Tofino. (We know this is very early in whale season, but one of my friends really wants to see a whale as part of her birthday trip, so we are looking to give it a try.)
March 23: Drive back to Vancouver early, return rental car, check-in at hotel, dinner somewhere cool, hockey game at 7pm. Spend night in Vancouver
March 24: Early train to Whistler, Sight see for most of day & check out Scandinavian spa. Spend night in Whistler.
March 25: Day in Whistler (zip line, snow shoe). Spend night in Whistler.
March 26: Early train to Vancouver, check in at hotel, all day to sight see (Stanley Park, sea wall, etc). Spend night in Vancouver.
March 27: Fly home - depart from Vancouver.
