Canada has been sitting at the top of my travel bucket list for years. Not only is it a great place to stock up on North American goods (and sweets!) without having to go to America, but the scenery is so vast and varied that everywhere you go looks like a postcard. I’ve done some research into how I want to make my Canadian debut and I thought I would share what I’ve found with you today. Here are the three best ways to travel around Canada.
Who doesn’t love a road trip? One of my favourite ways to travel is to pack up some snacks and some of my nearest and dearest, and make our journey out into the great unknown. There are pros and cons when it comes to doing a road trip, of course – you may have more freedom to choose your own route, but it does mean you can’t relax as much as you could if you were being transported in another way, and you may end up spending more on fuel. Still, road trip memories are ones you will keep forever, and Canada is the perfect place to get out on the open road.
One thing that you know you are going to get in Canada is that gorgeous rocky mountainscape, which is why a train is a great way to tour the country. Using the train means you get a mix of coastal and landlocked locations under your belt, giving you a variety of experiences and landscapes to take in as you travel. The famous Rocky Mountaineer route takes you on a scenic journey through The Clouds, between Jasper and Vancouver, travelling breathtaking mountain ranges and making memories that you will take with you forever.
If your style of living the life of luxury involves a stint aboard a large cruise ship, then you are going to be thrilled with the options that Canada has to offer. Canada’s position above the United States of America means that a great portion of the country is coastline, which makes it the ideal place to visit by boat. You could make Canada one stop in a multi-country cruise, or take a trip that hits several of Canada’s major coastline cities. A popular location for those taking a cruise is Montreal, which is steeped with 18th Century French history from when settlers first came across and brought their unique culture with them.
