An Epic One Way Camping Tour of Western Canada
The tour begins in either Banff, Alberta, or Vancouver, British Columbia. You may choose to modify the route based on your personal preferences or additional destinations, but overall we think this is the route that offers the best of Western Canada in just 8 to 15 days.
This route is very detailed, with a few major must-sees included. Following our loving crafted itinerary, we're confident you'll have an unforgettable camping experience in Canada. Everyone has unique preferences, styles, and tastes. Some are drawn to the remote wilderness, while others favor well-known national parks like Banff NP and Jasper NP. Families with children will particularly enjoy Wells Gray Provincial Park and the Okanagan region. One of our favorite locations is Yoho National Park, which tends to be less crowded than other spots in the Rockies (such as Lake Louise) but still boasts incredible landscapes. All of these destinations are truly worthwhile.
Our alternate options (ALT-Route) offer a more family-oriented experience, encompassing not only the high mountains but also sunny lakes, rivers, and streams. This warmer route offers family-friendly campgrounds, allowing children of all ages to have fun. The Okanagan Valley, a warm wine and fruit region with beautiful, expansive lakes, is perfect for sunbathing, boating, swimming, and relaxing. This route also passes Bromley Rock and Hedley, which are ideal for tubing or rafting along the rivers and streams.
