Island Highway 19 Nanaimo to Port Hardy Scenic Drive On the eastern coast of Vancouver Island starting from Nanaimo, travellers can head north on Highway 19 for 391 km (243 mi) to the city of Port Hardy, Vancouver Island’s gateway to the Inside Passage. Unless you are taking the ferry north to Prince Rupert or Bella Coola you must turn around and retrace your steps. On the way recommended stops include Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Comox, Courtenay, Campbell River, Sayward, Telegraph Cove and Port McNeill. Side trips to Heriot Bay, Strathcona Park, Gold River and Zeballos are also available. Pacific Marine Circle Tour The Pacific Marine Circle Tour is a short 255 km (158 mi) journey along Vancouver Island’s remote coasts, and offers beautiful views of the Juan De Fuca, Haro, and Georgia Straits. The quiet ambiance of the Island relaxes visitors with views of quiet parks and oceanside towns. Note: Sections of the route are secondary roads without a centre line. There are narrow parts with a number of single lane bridges over several scenic streams. As well, you will encounter hairpin bends and bumpy roads. Super Camping - Vancouver Island & The Gulf Islands Nanaimo to Tofino Highway 4 The drive from Nanaimo to Tofino will take 2.5 - 3 hours and is 200+ km (120 mi) but it would be wise to give yourself five. This fabulous road trip is not to be rushed – you’ll want to make multiple stops along the way to explore, worship the rugged beauty, snap photos and simply reflect on your place in this vast world. The route takes you through MacMillan Provincial Park and famous Cathedral Grove with 800 year old growth trees. Next is Port Alberni a recommended stop for snacks, a restroom break or to fill up on gas. Highway 4 becomes the Pacific Rim Highway. The final destination of Tofino or the other direction at the fork is the quaint village of Ucluelet. In between both falls the famous Pacific Rim National Park.
