My fiancé and I were originally planning to do a road trip through Europe. After thinking over the prices of airfare, rental car, insurance, hotels, etc. we decided we should plan something else. My fiancé loves this tea house and lake in Canada and I’ve always wanted to go. We live in Oregon so it wouldn’t be that hard of a trip to rent an RV and drive up to Banff. We are liking this idea because we would be able to visit national parks along the way, hike, and camp anywhere we can park the vehicle. Our car and room would all be paid for and we could cook meals in the RV. Has anyone who likes the outdoors and road tripping ever done this or thought about doing it? We were thinking of doing a 10 day trip up to Canada and back. Any thoughts?
We are doing this, but in New Zealand! We are renting a camper van and driving from the south island to the north. My FH calculated the costs and then through out the van idea... I loved the idea!! So far, everyone we've told is super jealous! Haha! The running joke is "if we can survive the first two weeks of marriage in a small van together, we'll last a lifetime!" Enjoy your travels!
We did this in Hawaii and it was the best idea! There’s lots of camper rentals in your area too. There’s escape and cruise america. Canada has cruise Canada and canadream. We camped at Lake Louise and did the hike to the tea house. It was amazing but a long hike. Banff is super cute and beautiful. Canada is really friendly to vanlife and RVs. If you go to Lake Moraine I suggest getting up for sunrise. The parking lot is small and the tour busses show up early!
