Vancouver-Okanagan-Victoria-Tofino-Vancouver Feedback

Jump to last reply

Going to BC, one of our favorite places in the world. Would love feedback on below itinerary:
*Arrive October 6 at 8:30 p.m. - stay at YWCA for one night
*October 7: Pick up car in downtown Vancouver in a.m. and drive to Okanagan Falls (stay in suite of private home within walking distance to Blasted Church winery). Any other suggestions? Is this a good locale?
*October 7 -11: Four nights and 3 full days touring around wineries, hiking, biking. (is this one night too many or just right?
*Friday, Oct 11 - drive back to Vancouver and go straight to ferry to Victoria. I have timetables and think we can catch the 3 or 4 p.m. ferry. As it is a holiday weekend there is extra ferry going. Should we reserve in advance?
*October 11 & 12 - two nights and one full day in Victoria. Staying with some friends I think.
*October 13 - drive to Tofino. En route either do something at Wild Play in Nanaimo or zipline at West Coast Wild (30 min from Tofino)?
*October 13, 14, 15 - three nights and two full days in Tofino. Should we add a night here and one away from wine country? Stay possibly at a cottage next door to Botanical Gardens and 1 mile walk into town. is this a good idea or should we go more remote to
Chesterman Beach?
*October 16 - drive to Nanaimo and catch ferry to Vancouver. Three nights at L'Hermitage (good idea?). So we have two and 1/2 days and 3 nights in Vancouver. I have spent quite a bit of time in 2009 here so I've already seen a lot.
*October 19 - we have a 7 a.m. flight back to Houston.

In addition to specific questions above I am really unsure about whether 4 nights should be in wine country (wine festival going on) or Tofino (mid October - weather issues?)?

Thanks and I promise to do a full trip report when we return.
Charlotte
