Vancouver - Day Trips from Vancouver (Chapter)
This is the Day Trips from Vancouver chapter from Lonely Planet's Vancouver guidebook.
Want to escape the city? This chapter includes the very best excursions from Vancouver - and they can all be completed in a day. Must-sees include Victoria’s Royal BC Museum, and Whistler’s Peak 2 Peak Gondola.
- British Columbia’s historic waterfront capital, Victoria, combines colonial charm, a brilliant museum and a pub-tastic craft-beer scene.
- In the shadow of the mountains, gable-roofed Whistler doubles as an idyllic ski resort in the winter and Canada’s favourite outdoor activity destination in summer.
- Richmond’s modern day Chinatown is home to North America’s best Asian shopping and dining scene, while nearby waterfront fishing village Steveston has some great museums.
- Just a scenic floatplane trip from Vancouver, each of the Southern Gulf Islands has its own distinctive feel, with Salt Spring Island as the main escape.
Coverage includes: Victoria, Whistler, Richmond & Steveston and the Southern Gulf Islands.
