Where to go by RV or campervan hire in Canada:
There is a highway that spans the country from east to west coast called the trans-Canada highway; which will take you right across Canada in your motorhome rental, campervan hire or recreational vehicle. This will give you the highlights of the country. In total there are 13 provinces and territories and just one word to describe them all: breathtaking. The country is widely varied, from arctic landscapes to great lakes to the Rocky Mountains and highly populated modern cities. Toronto and Vancouver are the biggest cities in Canada, on the east and west coasts respectively, with the capital being Ottawa.
The eastern province of Quebec is French speaking, the largest population of French Canadians on the North American continent. Brush up on your French phrases before setting out here as some areas can speak little English. In fact, Canada is officially bilingual. The country also has an Aboriginal population that, though decimated during colonialism by Europeans, still survives. This includes the Inuit people, better known under the generalized term “Eskimo”.
