HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR TRIP TO ROAD TRIP CANADA

Our first recommendation for the summer is always the Big One – if you have the time and budget.

We believe this is the best possible adventure road trip you can take in around a month. Each place we explore is selected because it is unique and amazing. You are coming all the way Out Here, so why not do it all if you can!

The Central to Maritimes, Central & All Maritimes, Maritimes to Central, Almost Big One, and Halgonia to Central  trips are distinct sections of the Big One. 

We understand that not everyone has the time or budget for the entire journey. That's why we've structured the route so it can be split into two sections, each providing a great mix of experiences across a variety of regions, and each with solid transport connections.

And there is flexibility in how you join us.

We have lots of options for how, when, and where to join us. If these options don't match exactly, reach out and we'll do our best to help you out. If there is something specific you are really keen to do, also reach out.  Bear in mind we do not let people join the trip for short periods – most travellers join for the majority of the trip – and if they don't they wish they had. 

WHEN SHOULD YOU GO?​

  • The Cold Scares You? It isn't that cold! Get your swimmers out! The weather in the shoulder seasons of April and May along with October can get colder some days, but usually is quite decent. It is unlikely to be very cold, just bring a wind-breaker and appropriate clothing layers.

  • Wildlife? Moose, bears, beavers and deer you can see year round, it matters more what time of day and where you go. Although Moose are really visible in May. Whale watching in Tadoussac happens all season but is more active in August, September and October. 

  • Adventure Activities? Most activities it doesn't matter. For white water rafting it can sometimes have higher water levels in May and June. Any time of year it is a great ride – they don't call it the mighty ottawa river for nothing.​ 

HOW LONG DO YOU HAVE?

  • Two weeks or so: The Haligonia to Central and Central to Maritimes trips are best for your time range.  They both visit amazing and unique locations different than the other - both a mix of the outdoors and the cities. If you are keen on add-on activities, the Central to Maritimes is your beset bet. If you prefer more hiking and outdoor exploration the Haligonia to Central is a better choice.

  • Three weeks or so: The Almost Big One or the Central & All Maritimes are the best options for you. In the first option – as compared to the Big One – you skip Algonquin Park, Ottawa (the Capital) and our time along the way to Quebec. You'll however get to experience the magical Gaspesie, Parc Bic, and Montreal. The Central & All Maritimes does the opposite .

 

  • Four weeks: We highly recommend the Big One.  This is our premier trip that hits our favourite destinations across all of Central & East coast of Canada.

  • More please! We are running one special trip in 2020 with an extension to Newfoundland. Check it out. See you on the road!

 

  • Less than a week: Check out our Quicky Central Trip. You'll go on a great adventure through Ontario & Quebec at a fast pace. We don't run many of these each season, and they are usually in the shoulder seasons.

WHERE ARE YOU STARTING FROM?

  • Ottawa. We recommend coming to Toronto for the Big One or Central trips so that you don't miss the Algonquin Park portion of the trip. Alternatively, you can join the trip in Ottawa – just reach out.   

  • Other. We are happy to work on a creative solution with you.  Let us know where you will be at, when you want to go and we will see what we can do to help you figure out how to meet up with us.
