Discover Canada by Campervan - the country's highlights
Unparalleled nature shaped by rugged rocky landscapes and wild rivers, sheer endless expanses and breathing wildlife - Canada is regarded by many travellers as the land of freedom. The popular destination in the north of the American continent inspires with its numerous national parks, countless outdoor activities and idyllic, deserted paths. When travelling through Canada by campervan, tourist metropolises such as Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal should not be missed. In order to discover the fascinating nature of the country on your own, many mountains, lakes and other phenomena are at your disposal in the national parks!
Ottawa, the federal capital of the country, is one of the most important attractions to be visited during a tour through Canada by campervan. Art and culture lovers will enjoy the rich museum landscape, which ranges from the National Gallery of Canada to the Canadian War Museum and the Canadian Museum of Nature. A walk along the Rideau Canal and a picnic in the beautiful Major's Hill Park round off the excursion to Ottawa.
Calgary, a city in the south of Canada, is also a popular tourist destination. While children as well as adults can let off steam on the roller coasters in Calaway Park, the Heritage Park Historical Village offers the opportunity to immerse themselves in the history of the city.
The city of Hamilton near the Canadian-American border also has many highlights to offer: You can experience lions, zebras, giraffes and other animals up close on the African Lion Safari or take a hike to the Albion Falls waterfall. If you are travelling through Canada by campervan, you can also take a detour to the other nearby waterfalls - such as Sherman Falls, Buttermilk Falls or Tiffany Falls.

Your Canada tour starts in Hamilton by campervan and continues to Mississauga. At Playdium, families in particular will feel at home, as both indoor and outdoor attractions are on offer.

In Kingston, your next destination, a visit to Fort Henry, which was built in the middle of the 19th century and now serves as a museum, among other things, is a good idea. Once you have reached your Montreal destination on this tour, you can stroll along the Old Harbour or visit Notre-Dame de Montréal!
