Toronto Road Trip: CN Tower

One way road trip: Toronto to Calgary

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.

What To Do In Whitehorse

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

Miles Canyon
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.

Emerald Lake

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 Fishway
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.

Moraine Lake

Rocky Mountain RV Destinations

The Rocky Mountains are a sight unlike many. From the towering mountains themselves, to the trees, wildlife and quickly changing weather there’s so much to explore. A few favourite spots in the Rockies that bring and immense sense to those who choose to take the journey include:

Moraine Lake
Exploring the national parks are an adventure of their own, but Moraine Lake has a special quality. The water is incredibly blue and the Rockies that surround are towering. Be sure not to be fooled by the locals’ stories about draining the lake and painting the bottom, it may seem like the lake is impossibly blue but paint isn’t involved.

Icefields Parkway
The drive is one of the most scenic drives that there is. Be sure to enjoy the Athabasca Glacier in the Columbia Icefields on the way. There aren’t many experiences like the ice fields out there.

Canmore Cave Tours
