CANADIAN AFFAIR - THE TRAVEL EXPERTS

West Coast Fly Drives

From the Rocky Mountains to the prairies and the Pacific

Western Canada is my favourite! It's where you'll find the Rockies, the Pacific Coast, temperate rainforest, even vineyards! Cities like Calgary and Vancouver are so lively and make great gateways to smaller centres like Banff and Whistler. Your flights, car and hotels are all included so it's really easy.

Our favourite Western Canada road trips

The best driving routes in British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon and into Alaska

peyto lake at sunset

The Icefields Parkway

This section of Highway 93 between Lake Louise and Jasper is the most beautiful drive in the Canadian Rockies. Its 143 miles could be completed in a few hours, but you should allow a full day for all the scenic stop-offs. Peyto Lake is one of the best examples of a turquoise glacier lake, while the Athabasca Glacier ice truck tour is a must-do.

Emerald lake yukon

Dempster Highway

This highway connects the Klondike Highway in Yukon to Inuvik in the Northwest Territories. It is the only highway in Canada to cross the Arctic Circle.

Revelstoke to Lake Louise

This section of the Trans-Canada highway is spectacular. Pass through Yoho, Glacier and Mt. Revelstoke National Parks.

Sea to Sky Highway

The journey between Vancouver and Whistler offers breath-taking views of the Pacific Coast on one side and the Coast Mountains on the other.

alaska highway

Alaska Highway

This 1000-mile epic links Dawson Creek in BC to Delta Junction, Alaska. Our favourite section starts at Whitehorse, Yukon. Expect bears, eagles and wilderness.

pacific rim highway

Pacific Rim Highway

The Pacific Rim Highway cuts across Vancouver Island from East to West, linking Port Alberni with Tofino. It’s a beautiful road and takes in the Pacific Rim National Park. The drive is characterised by old growth cedar forests which blanket the island. The route takes you to the surf towns of Tofino and Ucluelet (Ukee) where you can visit Long Beach.
