Welcome to the Canada Country Guide
Hello/Bonjour and welcome to our Canada country guide. If you love adventure and nature and are considering a trip to western Canada, then you will want to spend some time looking through this guide. We spent fifteen days exploring western Canada. In order to do this, we bought one way tickets to Vancouver and out of Calgary. We rented a car in Vancouver and drove 1,475 miles. We went up the Sunshine Coast and then headed eastward across the country making well thought out stops along the way. We were able to drive up the Icefields parkway before ending our trip in Calgary. Highlights of this adventure included kayaking at sunset with seals, taking a boat ride to the Princess Louisa Inlet and watching an eagle soar, trying Via Ferrata, hiking an elevation gain of over 3,000 feet, completing the Lake Louise Tea House challenge, white water rafting, biking at Stanley Park, relaxing at lodges with stunning views, seeing animals in their natural habitat, stargazing in Jasper, walking on a glacier, exploring tide pools, and eating good food. This guide includes our itinerary and our personal thoughts about our experiences. We hope that you enjoy exploring this page and find this information useful when planning a cross-country driving trip in Western Canada.
