There are so many fun things to do in the cities of Calgary and Vancouver. And there are so many wonderful places to stop along the way. Why not extend the drive a few days and make the trip a memorable one. We’ve chosen our top not-so-popular places to stay because going to new places you’ve never been is always an adventure worth trying.
If you love outdoor adventures, Golden is the place to be any time of year. Home to three national parks, makes it a great base for getting outdoors. Kicking Horse Mountain Resort will offer exceptional skiing and summertime hiking. Head to Yoho National Park and check out the impressive Takkakaw Falls.
Revelstoke lives and breathes mountain culture. If you’re only there for a short time, take a drive up Mount Revelstoke National Park and check out the Meadows in the Sky Parkway. If you have more time to spare, Mt. McPherson offers mountain biking trails for everyone and Revelstoke Mountain Resort has year round fun and a big bad ski resort with endless runs.
3) Salmon Arm Shuswap lake is a water lovers paradise. Stop at Canoe beach for a paddle or go exploring with one of the many rental companies boating attire.
The Coquihalla holds a special place in many people’s hearts. Check out the Othello Quintette Tunnels in Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park, just north of Hope. The tunnels are carved out of solid granite and were once part of an active railway. Now the trail is still operational as an outstanding bike route.
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.
