Get back to nature in Western Canada

By Kristina, March 10th, 2011

Western Canada is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. In a single summer day, it’s possible to hike to a waterfall, canoe in a glacier-fed lake, view eagles and bears in their natural environment and catch a salmon for dinner.

Or perhaps you’d rather walk through an ancient rainforest, kayak the coast, go whale watching and soak in a natural hot spring. How about whitewater river rafting, horseback riding in the desert, mountain biking through forest trails and climbing a cliff face?

On the practical side, Western Canada is affordable and offers a comprehensive network of camping grounds as well as a multitude of businesses and agencies that help travelers make the most of their visit.

One such company, Canadian Adventure Rentals, takes the guesswork and hassle out of planning a trip into the great outdoors.

Based near Vancouver, B.C., the company arranges custom self-drive camping vacation packages that come complete with a Nissan Xterra sport utility vehicle and all the necessary equipment.

The company’s offerings are tailored to the independent traveler who values convenience, freedom and choice and wants an alternative to renting an RV.  Mix-and-match packages range from a basic three-day rental of a truck and camping gear up to an all-inclusive multi-week experience with add-ons such as Trek mountain bikes, single kayaks, Clipper canoe and camping reservations.

All packages include unlimited mileage and a travel manual with maps, equipment instructions, itinerary suggestions, contact information for activities and other useful information.
