Our favourite drives
The Icefields Parkway, Alberta
The Icefields Parkway, or Highway 93, links Lake Louise with Jasper and is one of the most scenic driving routes anywhere in the world. It is a hugely popular destination for those renting motorhomes in Canada as there are natural attractions all the way along its 232km length and it passes more than 100 ancient glaciers. It's here that you'll find the Columbia Icefields, where giant trucks take you out to step on the Athabasca Glacier. You'll find waterfalls, glacial lakes, alpine forests and wildlife along the way.
The Cabot Trail, Nova Scotia
Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia boasts some of the most incredible ocean roads anywhere in the world and this is a popular route for many people booking Canada motorhome holidays with us. Cruise your RV along the winding cliff roads and be rewarded with wide-open views of the Atlantic Ocean. Encounter old-growth forests and prehistoric rock formations as you wind your way past friendly fishing communities. As a bonus, the fresh seafood and juicy lobsters here are a real highlight!
The Pacific Rim Highway, BC
If you're looking through our campervan hire Canada holidays, then the Pacific Rim Highway route is a destination that should be high on your bucket list. This scenic highway cuts across Vancouver Island in British Columbia from just north of the ferry port of Nanaimo on the East Coast to the surfing town of Tofino on the West Coast. The road cuts through the Island's wild heart, through vast swathes of old-growth forest. The towering cedars dwarf the cars that drive past them and are draped in hanging moss. Once you reach Tofino, you'll be rewarded with the spectacular beaches of the Pacific Rim National Park.
Things to know
Finding your campsites
Remember that even though you're in a fully equipped campervan, you're not allowed to camp just anywhere during your Canada motorhome holidays. You must spend the night at a designated campsite. Thankfully, Canada is well-equipped when it comes to campsites. We aren't able to book campsites for you but can point you in the right direction to find suitable sites. In the national parks, these will be managed by Parks Canada, and you can book through their website.
Make the most of your motorhome
The campgrounds in Canada are excellent. Many of them include a fire pit at each pitch, so make sure you bring some marshmallows for toasting! You'll usually be able to buy firewood bundles somewhere on-site. One thing to remember is that thanks to the beautiful wild locations of the campsites, especially in the likes of the Canadian Rockies, bears are sometimes a risk. Read up on bear safety and pay attention to warning notices. You may need to keep food in bear-proof lockers provided on-site.
Taking your time
Don't be too ambitious with your driving times and distances. Sometimes, the driving distances in Canada can be further than you think. Plus, Canada is laid-back when it comes to driving. No one drives too fast, and you'll be slower in a motorhome too! Allow plenty of time for each leg of your journey to make lots of stops and enjoy Canada at your own pace. There are so many incredible views and attractions that you'll be pulling over a lot during your motorhome holiday in Canada!
