Where the prairies and farmland meet striking mountains and glaciers is where you will find Calgary.

Here are a few ideas to get you started on planning your Calgary RV Rental Holiday….

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.

Moraine Lake

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

PEI-lighthouse-beach-ocean

Prince Edward Island

PEI is a destination for those wanting to immerse themselves in stunning scenery. Explore ocean coves, relax, and let ‘island-time’ set the pace. The whole island has remote beaches under discovered by tourists and the colour of the rocky cliffs can range from bright orange to burnt red depending on the time of day.

PEI-red-cliffs-ocean

There are a few tourist destinations in PEI connected to Lucy Maud Montgomery and the books she wrote about Anne of Green Gables. These books captured the hearts of people across Canada and the world. The first novel was published in 1908 and has since been converted to 20 different languages.

Charlottetown is the capital of PEI and has much to offer in itself which you can check out on our Charlottetown Blog Post.

Here are some things to do in PEI outside of Charlottetown.

Nature

The coastal national park offers many different attractions such as sand dunes, beaches, a Victorian era mansion, Green Gables, wetlands and saltmarshes.

The Bottle Houses

Where else in the world can you find buildings made from whole glass bottles and concrete? This is a truly unique attraction that has three buildings as well as gardens and a gift shop. Although this attraction is pretty sweet it does not take that long to go through it, so allow an hour or less.

History & Museums

anne-of-green-gables

Anne of Green Gables Museum

If you are a fan of Anne, or just want to see ‘Anne’s Land’, this is a must-visit. The museum is in the house that Lucy Maud Montgomery spent lots of summers with her aunt and uncle. The settings provided inspiration for Lucy, and the Lake of Shining Waters is here. There is artifacts, gardens and a gift shop.

Then, spend an hour or so learning about PEI’s biggest industry, this will provide some context about the many fields of potatoes you are sure to drive by during your travels. Did you know PEI produces more potato per capita than any other place in the world?

The must-do’s in PEI include eating local lobster and potatoes, relaxing on remote beaches and visiting the Confederation Centre of the Arts.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort

Travel the Powder Highway

The powder highway, the place where winter dreams come true. From the sky high slopes, back
country turns, and powdery glaciers, there’s nothing that the powder highway doesn’t offer. If
you’re wondering where our favourite stops along the powder highway are, here’s our top 5:

Kicking Horse
The expert skiers paradise with approximately 60% of runs hitting the black diamond or higher
mark. Lifts were only installed in 2000 and was previously a top heli-skiing location. Kicking
Horse is often compared to Jackson Hole and offers some serious steeps with its 4133 vertical
drop.

Lake Louise
Lake Louise is one of those few places where you can stand in awe of the view around you;
from the stunning lake itself to riding true in the Rockies. Lake Louise hosts the World Cup
races each autumn. The varied terrain at the lake is stunning with something for everyone –
being one of the biggest areas in North America to ski.

Red Mountain
Located in the Kootenay Rockies, Red offers the world’s biggest cat-skiing operation with a
tenure of 19,300 acres and prides itself on being the only cat-skiing operator in British Columbia
to run trips for intermediate, advanced and expert skiers or snowboarders.

red mountain

Revelstoke
When you’re stuck between the Monashee and Selkirk Mountain ranges, expect 480 to 720
inches of white fluffy snow to fall annually. Couple that with the hill boasting North America’s
longest vertical descent at 5,620 feet, you’ll spend far more time riding pow then on a lift.
Revelstoke has also been dubbed the heli-ski capital as well. The endless pow days not to be
missed.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort

Sunshine
With one of the longest ski seasons, Sunshine offers natural snow as the base elevation starts at over 5,400 feet, not to mention the 3,300 acres of ski runs and a 3,000 foot vertical drop. What’s not to love about natural pow from November to late May.

With so many other mountains to explore, these are just a few highlights and it’s always difficult
to pick just five. Every mountain is unique and every mountain offers an experience in the snow.

One of the ‘must-do’s’ when in Toronto, the tower is a major landmark. With a revolving restaurant at the top and view from above the skyline! Try to time it when a Blue Jay’s game is playing, as you can see the field from the top. Paying extra to go up higher is worth the money, too.

Algonquin Park

Fall in Algonquin

Fall always reminds me of leaves changing and the beautiful colours that follow. As the weather turns a bit cooler, kids are back to school, and Thanksgiving arrives, I always want to escape to Algonquin and its internationally renowned brilliant fall colours.

Algonquin Park

If you can catch the right window in the fall, it’s a waterfall of colours for kilometres on end. And if you’re lucky the wildlife viewing is spectacular birds on end, beavers making and repairing dams and moose wandering along in the river system.

Wondering when to go? Well that depends on the colours you want to see:

Late September: Red and Orange Maples
The first trees to change colour are the Sugar and Red Maples providing an the amazing red-orange colours which can be found most brilliantly in the western portion of the Algonquin Park. Traditionally the best time to view is the last week of September leading into the first days of October.

Early to Mid October: Yellow of the Poplars and Birches
The fusion of yellow are more common in the eastern highway 60 Corridor and the Park’s East Side.

Mid to Late October: The Tamarack Finale
These coniferous trees grow in the wetlands and are unique in that their needles change from green to a bright yellow and then fall off for the winter months.

There’s also camping for everyone and acts on a pack out what you pack in system. With all the wonderful wilderness around it easily becomes second nature to do just that. And if you’re feeling adventurous the canoeing is a wonder. Canoe rentals are available and they will drop off and pick up the canoe at a multitude of drop in locations, it makes for an easy fun filled day. Check out their autumn day use guide for more information.

Laurentian Mountains aka Laurentides
Is one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world and offers magnificent hiking and outdoor experiences. The two provincial parks in this range are Oka & Mont Tremblant.
Mont Tremblant is the largest national park in the province. With over 1,500 square kilometres there are 400 lakes, six large rivers and many small streams. Needless to say, there is hiking, biking, and high chances of seeing wildlife here. It is only 4 hours from Quebec City and just under 2 hours from Montreal.
Oka is a fraction of the size of Mont Tremblant Park at 23.7 square km. But, being less than an hour from Montreal, the location makes up for that. This is a great day trip if you want to relax by the sandy beach with your family. You can rent kayaks, a canoe, hike/bike one of their trails or just wander through the forest. If you have just picked up your RV and want to unwind in Canada’s nature or if you want to spend one last night in a Canadian park before returning your RV, this is the spot.
