Road Trips Across Canada

Originally published in TEACH Magazine, July/August 2020 Issue

Rather than hopping on a plane to enjoy some far away fun, make the most of your summer by exploring a little closer to home. Road trips can be a great way to get to know a place through a different lens, and the sheer beauty of the natural Canadian landscape promises unlimited photographic opportunities—so don’t forget your camera!

From coast-to-coast, there are plenty of diverse activities, events, and destinations to experience. Fans of seafood will appreciate the week-long “Savour Nova Scotia” road trip. The route includes stops at numerous award-winning restaurants along the east coast of Canada, as well as a tour through Nova Scotia’s “Wine Country.” A seven-day drive from Cranbrook to Banff offers an incredible journey through the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia. Or take a trip across the prairies of Saskatchewan—and be sure to stop at Grasslands National Park, where you can see plenty of rare wildlife and sleep under the stars at Canada’s darkest Dark Sky Preserve.
