How to split 7 nights between Vancouver & Victoria

Jump to last reply

We're going to the Vancouver/Victoria area in early April. for 7 nights We're just wondering the best way to split our week.
We plan to do all the touristy things in Vancouver & also want to go to Whistler for a day trip.
Initially I thought 4 nights Van & 3 in Victoria but now I;m wondering if we should cut back Vic to 2 nights or even just a day trip.
We don't want to hire a car.
I realise either way we'll be short-changing one of the places.
The idea of just a day trip occurred to me as I see getting to & from Vic takes about 4 hours (& therefore most of a day each way)
The advantage of a day trip is that we can go luggage- free as we will probably have a reasonable amount of luggage (ie travelling with a suitcase & carry-on each)

Thanks for your help
