Alberta’s under-explored, drastic landscape is what makes Alberta a destination to be experienced. From the west glacier mountains and valleys to the prairies and dessert of the east, you don’t have to go far to see it all. Alberta is the 4th largest province and one of two land-locked provinces in Canada. At the east border is Saskatchewan, and BC is to the west. In Alberta there are 2 major cities: Edmonton & Calgary. We offer RV pick-up nearby both international airports. (Edmonton YXD and Calgary YYC).
The best part about travelling in an RV is you get to go at your pace. That means if you aren’t too excited about a certain spot or, more likely, completely fall in love with a place, you can decide to stay as long as you want! Driving an RV around Canada means that you can have a hot meal right in an attractions parking lot instead of driving all the way back to your hotel and eating at the restaurant there. You’ll save money on food and time on travel. Simply, it is comfortable and convenient.
The Canadian Rocky Mountains
The Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage site includes 4 national parks. These are Banff, Jasper, Kootenay & Yoho. In the mountains and the towns around them, there is everything ‘outdoors’. Whether you want to try paragliding, skydiving, rock climbing, river rafting, or hike your way up to a stunning view, the Rocky Mountain Parks have it all.
Banff is a town within Banff National Park. Originally a hot-spring spa stop used for funding the railway, Banff became the first National Park in Canada. There are 9 museums in Banff which you can view at Discover Banff .
Visit Banff for the festivals, hot springs, hiking or ski resorts.
Take a half hour drive north of Banff to Lake Louise along the scenic 1A highway. Often spotted on this road are herds of elk.
Located about 25 minutes southeast of Banff is a town called Canmore. For a truly unique and memorable experience take part in a caving tour here. You will be led by professional caving tour guides to caves that you will rappel down, climb up, and squeeze through!
Jasper National Parkis the biggest park in the Canadian Rockies. There is a high chance you will see wild animals here such as bears, elk, and moose. You may hear timber wolves if you decide to camp near here. Popular activities in the area include visiting Sunwapta Falls, Athabasca falls, Lake Edith, Lake Patricia and driving across the Columbia Ice field.
Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park & Lakes National Park
In the 1930’s, Canada and the US joined together two beautiful parks called Glacier National Park and Waterton Lakes National Park, which together made the Waterton Valley. This was the world’s first International Peace Park and is celebrated as putting the environment above borders. Come and see what all the fuss is about, you will not be disappointed!

Driving across Canada is on many people’s bucket list. This shortened version hits all the best stops between East Coast’s Toronto and West Coast’s Calgary. I like to travel in style and rent an RV. Have you checked out some of the luxury RV’s out there? Talk about style! Having to stop and figure out where to stay and check in and out times, the flexibility that an RV offers is the way to go, if you ask me.
Starting Point: Toronto
Toronto is an easy place to pick up an RV making for a great starting point. It also boasts an endless supply of fun and adventure for everyone. From the St. Lawrence Market to Chinatown, the Fashion District to the Entertainment District, and endless music and show choices, how can you go wrong. If you’re lost, downtown is the place to start. The CN Tower, Rogers Centre (The Skydome), all of the Restaurants on King Street West and the shopping on Queen West, you’ll have plenty to do.
Next Stop: Lake Superior Provincial Park
The views of the Great Lakes are almost endless and definitely breathtaking. My favourite on route to Sault Ste. Marie is Lake Superior. The lake is cold but photogenic as ever. A great place to stop is the Lake Superior Provincial Park.
Stretch your legs at: Kakabeka Falls
Ontario is a big province, plan on stopping a few times during your drive. As you reach the northern route of Ontario, the roads get twisty with rolling hills. After hitting up Thunder Bay, be sure to check out Kakabeka Falls. There are some great trails that lead to the falls and the Kaministiquia River. It’s a great chance to stretch your legs for the day, have a picnic and even camp.
Finally outside of Ontario: Winnipeg
As the landscape changes from Ontario hills to the flats of Manitoba, this is where the countdown of provinces begins. Winnipeg is a great stopping point. With the Red River and Assiniboine river connecting. There are trails that run along both rivers and at The Forks National Historic Site of Canada you can see the confluence. If you enjoy touring museums, Winnipeg houses the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. The building architecture has an impact, however, as you walk through you can’t help but be pulled in many directions of emotion.
Crossing the Prairies: Saskatchewan
I’ve never seen beauty like the fields in Saskatchewan. They are endless and peaceful. Saskatchewan and Alberta house the only interprovincial park in Canada: Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park. There is a great mix of lakes, forests, wildlife and, as the name suggests, hills. The park is a great camp stop for canoeing and kayaking and is not too far off the Trans Canada Highway.
The Final Stop: Calgary
Before you make your way to Calgary, a great stop is the Dinosaur Provincial Park. The park boasts the world’s richest deposit of dinosaur bones and is a great place to go explore. From there, Calgary is only a hop, skip and jump away where city adventures await.
A popular reason for visiting Whitehorse is to take a Northern Lights tour, but there is so much more the ‘Wilderness City’ has to offer. It may come as a surprise to visitors but the capital of the Yukon Territories has an abundant art scene, mostly focused on visual arts.
Outside in the City
Take the suspension bridge over the rushing river and find a trail to explore on the other side.

Yukon Wildlife Preserve
Park your RV at the entrance of the property and enter the reception building. Here you will be familiarized with the preserve. Try to visit around feeding times as then you will have better chances of seeing the animals. The animals here are caribou, Canadian Lynx, mountain goats, elk, Alaska Yukon moose, mule deer, muskoxen, arctic foxes, wood bison and thin-horn sheep. You can partake in a bus tour or walk a 5 km trail on foot.
Usually to see a glacier-fed emerald & turqoise coloured lake one must hike up a mountain. However, the pullout to see this lake is just on the side of the main road and it is big enough even for RV’s which makes seeing this natural beauty easy.

Attractions & Entertainment
Takhini Hot Springs
Natural Hot Springs that are directed into a pool. This is a commercial business. On the site there is also a café restaurant, and camping opportunities. If you want to make a day of it stop at Beans North, a local coffee roaster, on your way to the springs.

North End Gallery
Immerse yourself in local art such as paintings, carvings, pottery and jewellery. If you are looking for a special gift for someone, this is the place!
Whitehorse was named such because of the huge rapids that used to be on the Yukon River. The rapids are not as fierce as they used to be due to a damn that has intercepted the river currents. The Fishway is a way of helping the fish bypass the damn. Visit the interpretative centre for the Fishway where there is an underwater window for viewing the salmon run.
The Yukon territory in Canada is the ideal place to pick-up your RV if you are planning a road trip to Canada’s arctic circle, Alaska, the other Canadian territories or south to Vancouver through BC. Through the Yukon there are 11 major routes on maintained highways to travel.
The scarcely populated territory is known for river rafting, salmon fishing, canoe expeditions, dog-sledding, hiking, and other outdoor adventures! The Yukon’s pristine and breathtaking nature includes Mount Logan, North America’s second tallest mountain. First Nations contemporary culture has a strong influence over the Yukon. Whitehorse, Yukon’s Capital, acts as a cultural hub. This is where you can pick-up or drop-off your RV Rental in the Yukon territory. RV pick-up/drop-off nearby to Whitehorse, Yukon airport (YXY).
Tip: When travelling long distances, make sure you have enough fuel by carrying a Jerry can with you.
