Scenic Drives in Canada
Canada has the perfect combination of buzzing metropolitan life and natural surroundings all in one fine country. As you make your way from city to city or town to town, you are sure to be fascinated by the extremely flat lands in Saskatchewan or other parts where the sky seems close enough that you can reach up and touch it. Each province has something different to offer and there is nothing better than picking up a car rental, hitting the road and exploring the country at your own pace and on your own time.
The Banff and Jasper National Parks in Alberta are two of the most beautiful places in all of Canada. What better way to explore them than by making your way along the Icefields Parkway? This route will give you the opportunity to view some of Canada’s most spectacular ice capped mountains, ice fields and the glacier that lies at the crest of the Rockies.
British Columbia is one of the most scenic provinces in the country and known for its moisture laden are and rich green landscapes. A trip along the Sea to Sky Highway will take you from Vancouver to Lillooet will take you on a scenic adventure past glorious pine forests, majestic glaciers and glacial mountains as well as a stunning waterfall and beautiful valleys.
One of the top routes in the eastern parts of Canada is Cape Breton’s Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia. This trail is about 300km long and it takes you through the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. You will see some Acadian fishing ports, amazing coastal views and more along the way.
For a real adventure and a chance to take your travels to the next level, a trip along Newfoundland’s Viking Trail is what you need! This is a real getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can really get in touch with your surroundings and you will even reach one of the most important local and international historic sites, Lánse aux Meadows.
There are, of course plenty of other routes to be enjoyed and even a trip from Winnipeg to Toronto can be an amazing adventure with lots to see. If you plan on making your way across country, you should consider a one way car rental. Whether you travel east or west, make sure that you take the time to travel past the great Lake Erie, Lake Ontario and Lake Superior. Accommodation should not be too hard to find and you can even save some money by booking your car and hotel online.
