Inspiration for your Long Weekend road trip in Western Canada

Got an extra free day or two? Check out these amazing destinations in western Canada

 

There’s nothing quite like the sense of freedom that bubbles up on the eve of a long weekend. Capture that mood and make the most of the whole extra day off with a motorhome road trip in western Canada.

 

A motorhome rental gives freedom to go wherever you please, whether that’s to follow the sunshine, the travellers you just met, or your own whims. No matter where you end up, you’ll have your accommodation sorted before you even arrive, and there’s never any need to unpack!

 

Take a look at these quick road trip ideas from Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton to inspire you for your next three-day weekend.

 

The stunning environs of Tofino are a popular destination for motorhome travellers starting out in Vancouver.

 

Road trips from Vancouver

Rent a motorhome in Vancouver and open doors to some of the most stunning scenery in Canada. Your choice of Vancouver itineraries is extensive, but there are a few places that are particularly suited for long weekend escapes.

 

  • Whistler is a world-famous destination regardless of the time of year you visit or your interests, and it’s just a 90-minute drive from Vancouver. In summer, it’s a mecca for hikers, mountain bikers, and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds and offers plenty of gorgeous places to park up an RV for the night.

  • Vancouver Island is another easy trip from Vancouver city, and while you’ll need to take the ferry across, it’s a short and scenic ride that will only add to the adventure (expect to pay roughly CA$60 with BC Ferries for the crossing). Once you arrive, you can explore British Columbia’s capital Victoria, try surfing at Tofino, kayak in Clayoquot Sound, walk amongst the giant trees at Cathedral Grove, and more. Get close to nature as you camp out in stunning locations around the island.

 

When it comes to epic alpine vistas, Banff National Park is unbeatable.

 

Road trips from Calgary

Calgary is one of Alberta’s biggest cities, and it’s surrounded by a number of incredible places you can get to with an exciting motorhome itinerary.

 

  • Banff and Lake Louise are two of the most breathtaking and beautiful destinations not just in Canada, but in the world, and they’re both within a few hours of Calgary. They’re both known for their world-class ski terrain through winter, gorgeous hikes through summer, and unforgettable scenery throughout the year. Campgrounds in this area are breathtaking!

  • A little-known gem of Alberta is Drumheller, Canada’s own dinosaur capital, just 90 minutes from Calgary. Here you can visit the world’s largest dinosaur and climb the 106 stairs for a view from inside its mouth, check out the Royal Tyrrell Museum, and learn even more at the Fossil World Dinosaur Discovery Centre. Then, head out for your own explorations on one of the many hiking paths around town.

 

 Canmore isn’t as well known as Banff National Park, but that actually makes it an even better place to visit.

 

Road trips from Edmonton

Alberta’s capital, Edmonton, is a historic city and the perfect starting point for plenty of motorhome road trips through western Canada.

 

  • The Jasper National Park is three hours west of Edmonton, and offers a glittering collection of enticing activities. This area is all about the natural sights, from the raw power of the Columbia Icefield to the beautiful Athabasca Falls. The Jasper Planetarium adds an educational element to your trip, and the Mount Edith Cavell hiking trail will help you appreciate the scenery from your own two feet. Few regions offer a more idyllic setting to camp out for a few nights.

  • Canmore is the lesser known (and less busy) version of Banff. Just as beautiful with just as many attractions, this town is all about hiking, biking, fishing, skiing and enjoying the great outdoors. It’s less than four hours from Edmonton, and it’s a good spot to try a caving tour, dive into the Grassi Lakes, or stroll along the Policeman’s Creek Boardwalk. Breathe in the fresh mountain air as you tuck your campervan in for a few nights in this stunning location.

 

This year, Parks Canada is celebrating the country’s 150th Anniversary by offering free national park passes to visitors from all over the world. Take advantage and make 2017 a year of exploration.
