Seven (7!) good reasons to check my road trip ideas Canada

1- No (pre) vacation stress

Using my travel itineraries will take away any vacation stress.  Why would you reinvent the wheel, as I’ve already boiled the ocean?
In my profession as a tour guide, I have carried out all offered itineraries in western canada up to 30 times. Each time I travel a section, I adjust the itinerary in great detail, in order to offer the best travellers’ experience.

2- Private tour guide

If I’d be in the position to join you on your trip, I would guide you exactly the same way as presented in these tour itineraries.
Using my road trip ideas and itineraries is like having a private tour guide on board.

3- Most scenic routes

Offered travel itineraries include the most scenic routes within Canada.

4- The best sights and activities selected

It is not my intention to include every single activity or sight along the route. Presented sights/activities/outings are carefully selected, based upon quality and feasibility within the proposed day schedule. 

5- Tailor your own trip

Whether you

  •   have two days or three weeks to spend,
  •    like to drive 50 or 500 km -30 or 300 miles- a day,
  •    travel with kids or with your best friend,
  •    enjoy to camp or to sleep in a luxurious resort, 
  •    get up at 6 am or like to sleep in,
  •    are a city boy or a countryside girl,

it’s never been easier to get inspired by my road trip ideas for Canada and to tailor your trip according to your personal preferences.

6- You are an independent traveller

Pick and book your own accommodation, rental car and optional activities. Upon request, we are happy to offer personal advice and additional road trip ideas for Canada to you.

7- Tour Guide Canada’s experience

  • During summers, I have guided over 30 small group tours. The tours last 12 - up to 18 days and each tour covers 2000-3400 km/1250-2100 mi. 
  • I crossed Canada -Coast to Coast.
  • I’ve explored many destinations most Canadians haven’t even heard of.
  • I’ve compared various excursions –such as whale watching tours, - hiked many different trails –from easy day hikes to strenuous backcountry treks- , and experienced numerous adventures offered by various outfitters – from a floatplane sightseeing tour to rafting class III-IV white water.
    Hence, I tasted many great places and experienced lots of adventures.
  • Above all, I love sharing my knowledge and passion for travel in Canada!
