Neither is very idiomatic to me. I'd say either, “I visited four countries between 2010 and 2014” or “I visited four countries from 2010 till 2014”. In fact I probably wouldn't even say the latter of those two—it feels much less natural than using between… and does. –  Janus Bahs Jacquet Jul 13 at 9:30

Both seem correct to me. But

I visited four countries over the period of 2010 to 2014.

sounds more correct.
