British Columbia Road Trips

British Columbia is one of our favorite areas to take a road trip. The scenery along the way is breathtaking, from beachy coasts and mountain-side lakes to green, dense forests with sunlight peeking through the trees.

While the drive is beautiful in and of itself, we always look forward to the fun stops along the way. Vancouver and neighboring Vancouver Island are full of life and offer tons of activities, so be sure to spend a few nights to savor the experience. Most of the road trips we’ve been on in BC start in these two areas.

We’ve taken all the road trips below and have included our favorite sightseeing adventures along the way. Feel free to read through them, keeping in mind that they can all be reversed depending on your destination. We hope you have a blast! Just don’t forget to fill the tank before heading out.

Road trips from Vancouver

Vancouver is the largest city in British Columbia, so it makes sense for travelers to start their journey here (us included!). But be sure to stay a while because there are plenty of restaurants, parks, and adventure activities in Vancouver to keep everyone entertained. Whether you want to start or end in Vancouver, check out our favorite road trips below!

Road trips from Whistler

While most people come to Whistler for the epic winter sports, we think it’s fun to visit year-round! Whether you’re staying for the season or just passing through, here are our favorite road trips that start in Whistler.

Road trips from Golden and Revelstoke

Whether you’re visiting Mt Revelstoke National Park or conquering your fear of heights by trekking across the Golden Skybridge, both Revelstoke and Golden offer some truly awesome views. We love spending a weekend getaway in either place, and they’re great starting points if you’re traveling through BC to Alberta!

Vancouver Island Road Trips

Visiting Vancouver Island is a dream! We love strolling through Victoria and seeing all the historical architecture in Nanaimo. It takes about 7 hours to get from one end of the island to the other. But road trips are way more fun when you sprinkle in some fun things to do, so check out our Vancouver Island road trips below.
