A week around Vancouver & Tofino, British Columbia

I’m finally back with some new travel material for this blog. This past week, Mr. Chuckles and I embarked on our highly anticipated trip to British Columbia, Canada – our first long distance travel since 2019.

Usually, I like to publish daily trip diaries while travelling, but I decided to switch things up this time around and do a series of recaps after we return home. Here’s a look at our completed itinerary.


What we did in British Columbia

Day 1

Our first full day in Vancouver. Met up with friends for a day trip to Squamish with stops at Shannon Falls and Horseshoe Bay. Afternoon at English Bay Beach in Vancouver.

Day 2

Morning walk and lunch at Granville Island. Afternoon exploring Gastown. Dinner with friends in West End.

Day 3

Seaplane to Tofino. Afternoon walk on Long Beach.

Day 4

Morning whale and wildlife watching tour in Tofino. Easy afternoon hike on Meares Island Big Tree Trail. Return to Vancouver via seaplane in evening.
