There are so many spectacular and wonderful places to take your recreational vehicle in Canada. There’s Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper, the Icefields Parkway, and Maligne Lake in the Canadian Rockies; Niagara Falls and the Maid of the Mist to observe this natural wonder up close; Cabot Trail, a 300 km scenic loop through the highlands of Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton; Vancouver, one of the most beautiful cities in the world; Victoria, a pleasant small city with British charm and the nearby Butchart Gardens; Québec’s Old Town (Vieux-Québec), the only fortified city in North America; Bay of Fundy with the highest tides in the world; Prince Edward Island of Anne of Green Gables fame; and the world-famous Calgary Stampede, the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth. And that’s just for starters. These are simply a few of the wonders of Canada that can be visited in an RV.
Go RVing Canada, in partnership with the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) of Canada and the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC), officially launched its “Top 100 Spots to RV in Canada” contest July 7 in commemoration of the RV Centennial.
This month-long contest, engaging RV enthusiasts across Canada, will allow participants to submit their favorite spot to RV in Canada.

This year marks 100 years since the first mass-produced motorized camper was produced. Several events will take place throughout the year across North America and Go RVing Canada is thrilled to take part in the celebrations honouring this important occasion.
“This event reinforces what we’ve been saying for years—RVing remains a popular vacation choice for those who are looking for freedom, flexibility, and fun,” said Go RVing Canada spokesperson Angèle Lapointe. “RVing is a lifestyle that many Canadians have adopted and have maintained, and the best part is, it’s incredibly affordable!”
The RV lifestyle continues to thrive and that’s what the Centennial is all about,” added Eleonore Hamm, RVDA of Canada president. “We are excited to hear about the many incredible RV destination spots that Canadians are visiting and raving about.”
“RVing is an intimate and accessible way to explore our beautiful country,” said Gisele Danis, CTC executive director of strategic marketing for Canada program. “The CTC is pleased to take part in the celebration of this milestone event and inspire Canadians to discover a Canada they didn’t know existed from coast, to coast, to coast.”
Life is a highway.
In Canada, summer is a limited time offer.
