Canada Road Trips

After traveling around Canada extensively, it’s safe to say that we have taken our fair share of road trips. We’ve driven around different parts of Canada, and for a time, we even lived out of our van so we could easily get up and go! Since Bailey was born and raised here, we have a lot of insight regarding what to expect when traveling through this scenic country.

We love sharing unique attractions, our favorite places to visit, and fun things to do in Canada, and our favorite way to get to these areas is by packing up the car and enjoying the sights along the way. The majority of these adventures are around Alberta and British Columbia, and we’ve got a lot of detailed road trips that can be used as guides which we’ve grouped by area below.
