Planning Your Summer 2021 Road Trip to BC

There is no better time than summer 2021 to plan that dream cross-Canada road trip you have always wanted to do. Whether your trip starts or ends in British Columbia, our province is bound to have some of the most remarkable views you will ever see, with towering mountains and shimmering lakes. On your way through, be sure to plan a trip to Shuswap Lake, book a night at Quaaout Lodge, and experience a vibrant area full of things to do and see.


Suggested Routes: Vancouver to Calgary or Around Vancouver

The journey from Vancouver to Calgary is a once-in-a-lifetime must-do for any road-tripper. Winding through the Rocky Mountains, every route is a scenic route here, with countless places to stop and explore. We recommend following the Trans Canada Highway 1, which makes the trip a roughly 11-12 hour drive non-stop if you are in a rush. However, for those looking to enjoy themselves and take in the surroundings, we highly recommend booking a few nights at Quaaout Lodge.



Where to Stay on Your Road Trip

Located near Kamloops, mere minutes from Trans Canada Highway 1, Quaaout Lodge is perfectly positioned roughly midway between Vancouver and Calgary. We offer tired travellers a place to rest up for the drive ahead, with 70 luxuriously appointed suites and rooms, all with stunning views of Lake Shuswap.



Attractions in Little Shuswap Lake Area

The Little Shuswap Lake area is absolutely packed with exciting things to do and see. On a summer road trip through British Columbia, this is the must-see place for food, hiking and other adventures. Here are some things to do when you visit:

  • Hit the links at Talking Rock Golf Course.
  • Enjoy inventive fusion dining at Quaaout Lodge’s own Jack Sam’s
  • Visit our local farmer’s market for fresh, delicious ingredients.
  • Visit our museums, galleries or catch a local concert.
