Along Canada’s main transportation route, TransCanada Highway 1, we’ll see amazing scenery as the route cuts through massive ranges and famous mountain passes.
Whether you’re driving eastbound to the Canadian Rockies, or westbound, leaving them and returning to explore Kamloops or on to Vancouver, there are recommended places of interest to stop, enjoy and break up the long stretches of highway driving.
We pass through Yoho, Glacier and Mt Revelstoke National Parks and there are several recommended very short walks and hikes to see giant cedars, alpine flowers and walk on lakeside wharves.
Highlights along the route include, Golden and the Kicking Horse River, Rogers Pass, Glacier National Park, Revelstoke, The Last Spike, Salmon Arm and then the almost desert-like landscape around Kamloops.
Drive on Hwy 1 from Kamloops or Lake Louise, or join anywhere along the route.
Allow 6 hours, possibly more with summer road construction.
