Vancouver Motorhome Rental in Canada
Compare RV Rental and Campervan Hire in Vancouver BC
Vancouver is a major port city on Canada’s west coast, in the province of British Columbia. You can go online and reserve your motorhome or campervan rental before you travel, then pick up the keys from your Vancouver motorhome rental, campervan hire and recreational vehicle (RV) branch. There are holiday parks and caravan and camping sites that will accept motorhomes, campervans and recreational vehicles with truly amazing locations and facilities throughout British Columbia and Canada beyond.
British Columbia routes by motorhome:
The province of British Columbia is quite large, so you could spend an entire two-week vacation in this area alone, or take the acclaimed Vancouver to Calgary scenic drive in your campervan rental. For those with limited time, a shorter hire motorhome road trip to Vancouver Island can be accomplished in as little as a week. Drive your RV or motorhome on to the ferry to the island, and enjoy the flora and fauna in parks and gardens suitable for hiking. Take advantage of the watersport activities on offer.
In the immediate surrounds of Vancouver you can visit the Capilano Canyon and take the 3,000 feet climb on the Grouse Mountain Skyride. If you can’t get enough of beautiful coastal views and lighthouse lookouts, stick to the Marine Drive and arrive to Lighthouse Park to wander through the old-growth Douglas-fir forest.
Another of Canada’s famous scenic drives is the Sea to Sky Highway, which is part of Highway 99 connecting Horseshoe Bay near Vancouver with Whistler and Pemberton. For those after a little skiing or hiking, this route passes through the resort town of Whistler. As you leave the Vancouver coast, your campervan rental route winds through mountains, sandy beaches, rainforest and national parks, such as Squamish, Garibaldi Provincial Park and Britannia Beach with nearby Shannon Falls.
Yoho National Park is yet another place of stunning natural beauty, located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Highlights of the area include Kicking Horse River, Mount Burgess and Emerald Lake. Banff National Park is nearby, as well as the quaint mountain city Kelowna. If curiosity takes you through the National Parks further and further from Vancouver, consider continuing along to Calgary and enjoy a couple of days in the city. Most Vancouver motorhome rental, campervan and RV hire agents will allow you to deposit your campervan rental in a different major city to the pick-up location.
British Columbia features in the National Geographic “Drives of a Lifetime” book. Meander along the Trans-Canada Highway 1, visiting Victoria, Nanaimo, Whistler, Pemberton and down into the Thompson Valley, to name but a few. The best time to plan your campervan hire holiday is from May to September. Our advice? See the seasons change all the way from Spring (Fall) through Summer and into Autumn!
