The road tripping routes:

  • Our primary road tripping route is a 26-day loop, but we've also put together different trip structures to help you join us where it is most convenient for you. All trips are put together based on locations with solid transport connections so you can join with minimal fuss.

The ultimate canadian road trip 

Be one of the few travellers to experience many of these incredible places. 

In additional to some classic highlights, you'll enjoy the beauty of Canada without tourists around throughout the journey. We visit these tougher to travel locations because they are worth it, and you'll love them.
 

The ultimate road trip route, destinations and experiences:

Our core summer route is called the Big One. It is the best Canadian road trip adventure you can take in around a month. Each place we explore is selected because it is unique and amazing. 

We understand that not everyone has the time or budget for the entire trip. That's why we've split it into a variety of options to ensure that you have the opportunity to join us where it makes most sense for you.

Because retaining good group dynamics is key, it is not possible to join our longer road trip route for a short amounts of time. Most people join us for the entire trip, or the majority of it.

The Quicky is a distinct speedy trip for those short on time (but we always recommend treating yourself to one of the longer options if you can).

We've designed these trips to give you the best experience we possibly can.
 

Ample time in each place

  • We believe you should have enough time to experience each place properly. If you rush, you might miss the good stuff. This is why we spend 2-3 nights in just about every region or city.  Canada is big, and the majority of your time shouldn't be moving from place to place, but rather we believe that you should be experiencing it.​​

  • There are certain places along the route where we spend one night, to help with logistics. drive-times, and when there is only a bit to do in a place. This way, you get more time in the better spots.

 

Genuine Experiences

  • Our priority is providing you with the trip of a lifetime - full stop.

  • We only recommending add-on activities that we think are amazing. We negotiate for lower prices for you rather than a cut for us.​​​

  • We don't sell your time to tourist traps or souvenir shops.

  • We treat you like an adult and allow you to explore accordingly. So long as you behave like one.

  • When you book with Out Here, you are on an Out Here trip. Everyone expects the same experience.

  • We choose locations and accommodations that are awesome, unique and worth visiting.

Flexibility in what you get up to

  • Most days, the bus will head out to national parks, activity spots and other places to explore. This is because in some places we visit, the best stuff requires a drive.

 

  • You have lots of control over what you get up to on the trip, so hop on the bus for activities, or just do your own thing. Most people come along for the journey.

  • For example, when we are in Gaspesie, you can head out with the bus to the national park and go hiking, hang out at the lodge and rent a paddleboard, or you can just relax and read a book by the river.

 

Built by Canadians

  • Out Here is built, and designed by Canadians. We are 100% committed to showing you the best Canada has to offer.

  • Our trips have been created based on our first hand experiences. We have spent years exploring so that you can enjoy what's worthwhile, and skip what isn't.

  • We are constantly improving our routes based on your feedback. Let us know your thoughts anytime. 

 

Canadian style accommodations

  • We stay in hostels, rustic lodges, and occasionally front-country campgrounds. We choose our locations carefully so that you are located nearby to the best out here. If you have a very strong preference to avoid tent camping, please reach out and we will advise which trips you should choose (or vice-versa).

  • We have everything booked for you. If you want to choose a different type of accommodation, or have specific needs, just let us know when you book and we will advise you what is possible. In that case you will be paying the provider directly.

 

Comfortable travel and transport

  • Our vehicles have ample space for you to stand up and stretch out. The seats recline and we have more seats than people on our trips. You gotta be comfy on the road.

  • The vehicles are big enough for comfort, but small enough that we can take you to the wild spots. All with a great vibe being decked out in Canadian gear.

  • There will be restroom and snack stops along the way. There is not a bathroom on the bus - trust us, this is a good thing.

  • We believe in listening to great tunes on the road, and have a soundsystem to match. Our drivers will be ready to DJ some classic Canadian tunes, but you'll also have the opportunity to share your own favourite playlists.

 

Do cool stuff on the way

  • There are lots of free/included activities to get up to, as well as add-on activities like rafting, Via Ferrata, sea kayaking and more.

  • On days that we move to new locations, we'll break up the drive  with cool stuff, such as hidden coves, huge waterfalls, and seaside towns for lunch. On optional and included day-trips in regions, we do great stuff so that you can experience the place.

  • See a spot that you are keen to check out along the route? Let your trip leader know in advance and we might just pull over. The earlier they know, the better. 
 

Spectacular National & Provincial Parks

  • Visit some of our most beautiful national and provincial parks for lots of exploration throughout your trip. Visit them on day trips, or right from the doorstep of your accommodation. 

  • Many of our provincial parks many actually think are National, like Algonquin and many in Quebec which might still be called National, even though they are provincial. Don't worry - we get you to the glorious ones!

  • They include Algonquin, Cape Breton Highlands, Mont Tremblant, Fundy, Gatineau, Saguenay Marine Park,  Gros Morne, Terra Neuve, Parc Bic, Gaspésie. Trip dependent of course.
