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 each be completed in a day. Must-sees include Victoria and Whistler.

  • Victoria is a scenic floatplane hop or languid ferry ride from the mainland. British Columbia’s historic waterfront capital fuses heritage charm, excellent attractions and a pub-tastic craft-beer scene
  • Whistler is the region’s favorite outdoor wonderland. This gable-roofed, mountain-framed ski village offers year-round thrills including skiing, rafting and zip-lining
  • host to North America’s best Asian dining and night night market scenes, Richmond also incorporates the pretty seaside village of Steveston, home to a couple of great historic attractions
  • arrive via scenic floatplane or ferry ride from the mainland to the Southern Gulf Islands; Salt Spring and Galiano feel as if they’re million miles away from the city

Coverage includes: Victoria, Whistler, Richmond & Steveston and Southern Gulf Islands.
