Roadtrips in Canada – East to West!

#TaxTipsCanada #TravelTipsCanada

Heading to Canada? Take this epic Canada roadtrip from east to west

There’s no denying that Canada is a huge country. Domestic flights are really expensive and so are the trains. Bus journeys can be really long and boring, so it’s not hard to conclude that the best way to travel around the country is by car. Pick one up on craigslist, take advantage of the cheap gas prices, roll down your windows and inhale freedom!

Take at least 3 weeks to really enjoy this trip; or if you don’t have too long to spare just choose a section to explore.

Let’s begin in Quebec City

Begin your road trip in Quebec City. Enjoy fresh baguettes, cobbled streets, café au lait and the rich French heritage of Canada’s oldest settlement. Practice your French and prepare your car for a 60-ish hour cross-country drive. Grab some supplies in Safeway before departing!

Stop 1: Montreal

Head south from Quebec to Montreal. This cosmopolitan city has plenty to offer, with its street artists, museums, smoked meats, bagels and of course North America’s largest jazz festival.

The average Canadian tax refund is $998


Stop 2: Ottawa

The Canadian capital is worth stopping for a day or two, and if you can, plan your trip around Canada Day. This city knows how to celebrate, so head to the lawns of Parliament Hill or to one of the many street festivals!

Stop 3: Toronto!!

Canada’s biggest city and commercial capital is best known for the cloud-scraping CN Tower, art from the Group of Seven and pumping nightlife. Stay with our friends at HI-Hostels with a great location in downtown Toronto and check out Yonge street – one of the longest streets in the world at a whopping 56 km!

Stop 4:  Niagara Falls

This is a MUST! Canada’s major show-stopper is just a short ride from Toronto. Rest up and prepare for a long drive through the flats of Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Stop in Regina for a break and more supplies!

Stop 5: Banff, via Calgary

Time your road trip around the Calgary Stampede – known as the Best Outdoor Festival in the World! Spend a few days immersed in the grandeur of the Rockies on the road to Banff, via the Columbia Icefield and Lake Louise. Hike up Sulphur Mountain for a great 360 degree view of Banff. Stay downtown with Samesun Hostels – make sure to spend some time in the infamous Beaver Bar too. Trivia on Wednesdays is a must.

The average Canadian tax refund is $998


Stop 6: Jasper

From Banff, head towards Jasper, home to gorgeous Maligne Lake and Canada’s highest cable car. Our friends at HI- Hostels will look after you here!

Stop 7: Vancouver

After stops in Yoho and Revelstoke national parks, end your trip at the Pacific Ocean with a scenic stay at Canada’s dynamic western capital. You’ll wanna stretch out your legs at this stage so try your hand at the Grouse Grind. Take a day trip to Whistler and check out the 2010 Winter Olympics venue!

Head to UBC Campus and check out their pretty cool rope bridge, and finish in Victoria Island with some whale spotting and surfing in Tofino.

PHEW! This summer is going to be epic!
