02Nanaimo To Tofino

After sailing on the ferry across the Strait of Georgia and landing on Vancouver Island, you'll be at the start of a 129 mile (207 kilometers) section of the Pacific Rim Highway.

This trip will take about two days, including stops. MacMillian Park is one of the locations on the road, and worth a mini-break to stand beneath the giant 800-year-old fir trees.
