Let’s start by pointing out that there are WAY more than five amazing places to road-trip to in Canada, but we wanted to help narrow it down and boast about our favorite five!

  1. Sea to Sky Highway
    If you are looking for amazing views and a stretch of highway with some awesome curves – then our number one a great choice! The Sea to Sky highway (also known as Highway 99) winds its way from West Vancouver to Whistler. One of the coolest parts of this drive, for me anyway – is that you start this trip at sea level and wind your way up to Whistler, which is  (2,215 ft) above sea level!

  2. Icefields Parkway, Alberta.
    The first time I drove through BC to Alberta and spent some time in Banff I was awestruck! Tieing Lake Louise with Jasper, Alberta is one of the most gorgeous road trips I have taken – the Icefields Parkway. Rated as one of the top drives in the world by Condé Nast Traveller, the Icefield Parkway is a 232 km stretch of double-lane highway winding along the Continental Divide through the towering rocky mountain peaks, icefields, and vast sweeping valleys.

3. Grasslands National Park, Saskatchewan.
 If you’re looking for beautiful wild-west-looking scenery, camping, and the chance to be in nature with views as far as the eye can see, then this is a must add to your road trip list! Grasslands National Park is a Canadian national park located near the village of Val Marie, Saskatchewan, and one of 44 national parks and park reserves in Canada’s national park system.

4. Interlake Region, Manitoba.
The history in this area is almost palatable. Sandy beaches, ample marshlands, and the indigenous spirit of the past generations. The Interlake region entwines a rich cultural legacy, chronicling Manitoba’s Aboriginal roots and early settlers of Icelandic, Ukrainian, and Scottish descent. Manitoba’s Interlake is a region that lies roughly between Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba in the Canadian province of Manitoba. The region comprises 14 rural municipalities, one city, six towns, and one village, Dunnottar. The largest population centre in the region is Selkirk.

5. Irish Loop, Newfoundland, and Labrador.
The last, but definitely not least on my top five road trips in Canada is the Irish Loop – it’s as close as I will come to visit Ireland for a least another year or two!

This loop is 312 miles of whales, seabirds, and rolling hills circling the south-eastern section of the Avalon Peninsula, named for its 400-year-old Irish heritage. Spanning the 312 kilometers one way (more with a side journey to Cape St. Mary’s, which is worth it), take your time on this gorgeous Newfoundland and Labrador road trip, making the most of the many historic sites, fun things to do in St. John’s, birding opportunities, and coastal views along the way.
