Explore Canada

December 27, 2019 was the last time I went through customs between the US and Canada. This is very unusual for me as I typically cross several times per year. Here are some of recommendations for the next time you get to explore Canada.

Waterton Lakes National Park

Waterton Lakes is directly North of Glacier National Park in Montana. Together, they are the Wateron-Glacier International Peace Park. Whether you are looking for hiking, biking, wildlife, boat tours, backpacking, restaurants, or classic hotels, this is one spot not to miss! Click here for more details!

Drive British Columbia Highway 6

Highway 6 connects the Okanagon and Nelson via the Needles Ferry. You won’t be disappointed!

Stop by Cranbrook

If you are looking for somewhere out of the way and more quiet than Banff, Cranbrook may be a place to check out. The town has a classic small town feel and the anticipate of being on the edge of Fernie and higher mountain passes can be felt! Slow down a bit, grab some lunch and enjoy!

Drive the Trans-Canada Highway

The Trans-Canada Highway through British Columbia and Alberta offers views, nice roads, minimal traffic, and adventure. Some of the highlights are Revelstoke, Banff, Yoho National Park, and the most amazing railway tunnel that I have ever seen. You won’t be disappointed!

These are just the hot spots on the West Coast. When the border opens again, I will start here as I head towards the parts of Canada that really hold my heart, Ontario. Cheers to 2021, hope for normal times, and the chance to explore Canada!

  1. I*ve never had a bucket list. Funny enough, now with the pandemic, I actually made a list where I’d like to travel as soon as it’s possible again – and for the first time, I really consider going to Canada – to relax in the wonderful nature. I never considered it before since I’m based in a northern region so that I’m always keen to winter in warmer countries 😀


  2. One of the things I like about in this post is how you’ve addressed offbeat places too! More often than not, Canada is more synonymous to rockies, Banff, Jasper. Atleast that is what I have imagined it to be. Canada is one of the countries that I haven’t visited, but been my favourite country for a long time! Ok, precisely since Mr.Trudeau became the prime minister 🙂


  3. I absolutely love Canada. I am curious about Cranbrook as you mentioned it as a less busy alternative to Banff. I love Banff, so a more serene version of it sounds right up my alley.


  4. I love Canada, what little I have been able to explore of it! I live only about 3 hours from the border, but with it being closed down I have not been able to explore as much as I would like! The Trans-Canada Highway sounds like the perfect place to start! I was planning a road trip before the lock down, and will have to add some of these to the list for when the borders re-open.
