Road trips and self drives

Freedom to see Canada the way you want

There’s nothing quite like sitting behind the wheel as you drive some of the most scenic roads in the world. Whether it’s the Sea-to-Sky Highway, the Icefields Parkway or the Cabot Trail, driving gives you the freedom to choose your own adventure and see Canada your way. Our Canadian Insiders have re-imagined the road trip to include a complete itinerary, personalized just for you.

The freedom of the open road

We love the freedom of a roadtrip, what we don’t love is finding ourselves at the end of a day scrambling for a place to stay, or wasting our time figuring out what to do. Our Canadian Insiders take care of the details so you can focus on the adventure.

Canada's Quirkiest Roadside Attractions

The next time you’re driving in Canada, be sure to designate one of your passengers to keep an eye on the side of the road. If they’re lucky, they might spot a T-Rex, a humongous beaver, a coin far bigger than a house or a towering part-man-part-log that looks like it could scoop up and eat your car without even putting its axe down.

Read on for our favourite Canadian roadside attractions and where to find them; then plan your trip accordingly. Don’t forget to pull over and snap some photos if you find one, especially if it’s one we haven’t heard about.
