Peace Bridge

Calgary is a must-visit destination for many reasons, and on three of our Canadian motorhome tours, you have plenty of opportunities to visit this well-known city. While you are here, take a look at the Peace Bridge.

The award-winning Peace Bridge is an impressive design and looks a little like a finger trap puzzle, but the bridge structure was designed innovatively so that the steel bridge holds up its own weight without the need for beams or cables. The bridge is painted bright red to represent the Canadian flag it has now become an iconic sight on the Calgary skyline and a great photo opportunity if you are in the area.

You can stop in Calgary on three of our Canadian motorhome tours so take a look at our Canadian Rockies Tour, The Road To The Rockies and The Best Of The Canadian and American Rockies Holiday.

Dover Island

On our Canada's Hidden Gem Tour you can take some time to appreciate Dover Island. This island, located not far off the coast of Nova Scotia, is sometimes known as the granite playground because of the enormous boulders scattered across the landscape. For those who love to camp or spend time in the great outdoors, then Dover island offers exciting hikes, breath-taking coastal walks, exhilarating climbing, fun-filled kayaking and peaceful birdwatching.

Despite Dover Island's beauty and intrigue, many tourists are unaware of it, and you might have to find a knowledgeable local to point you in the right direction. It is well worth the adventure to spend a few hours on this secluded and beautiful island where you feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Tremble Island

On the west coast of Canada, not far from Vancouver is Seymour inlet. In the centre of this is a narrow water inlet is Tremble Island.

Tremble island got its quirky name due to the fact it is said to tremble in high tide when the powerful water surges reach their peak. You won't be able to reach the island, but you can see it from a distance. Look out for the signs that stranded boaters left during high tides while they waited for the waters to recede. Some of these signs are said to have been there over 100 years.

If you are nearby on our Canadian Rockies or Great Parks and Lakes of Western Canada Motorhome Holidays, then take a quick detour to this iconic island.

Fairview Lawn Cemetery

We all know the tragic story of the Titanic, but not everyone knows what happened afterwards. This cemetery in Halifax is a sad reminder of the loss of life during the tragedy. Those who were not able to be sent home and were not lost at sea were brought to Halifax where they were buried at Fairview Lawn.

Each victim was given a memorial headstone, and history enthusiasts can now take a trip to this small part of the aftermath of possibly the world's worst maritime disaster.

It might seem like a morbid place to visit on holiday, but it is an important part of history, and the peaceful surroundings are the perfect resting place for those who lost their lives. You can make the stop in Halifax if you take our Canada's Hidden Gem Tour, a motorhome holiday that takes you around the whole of the stunning Nova Scotia island.

Prince Edward Island

Another stop you can make on our Canada's Hidden Gem Tour is at Prince Edward Island, famous for potatoes but also because of it's unusual shorelines. Many of the beaches outlining the island consist of deep red sand due to the high level of iron in the rocks.

Author Lucy Maud Montgomery took inspiration from these sands in her novel Anne of Green Gables, and if you take a trip to the town of Cavendish, you can even see the house called Green Gables. Perfect for anyone who loves classic literature!

Vancouver Police Museum

Every country has a darker side, even Canada, which historically is known for its friendly, polite people and culture. If you step inside Vancouver Police Museum, you can delve into the darker, and murkier world of Canada's criminals.

The museum was founded by a former police officer and is now housed in an old coroners court and adjoining autopsy rooms - a grim but intriguing place for a museum. You can view around 20,000 objects all connected to the police and prosecution service. The fascinating collection includes confiscated firearms, counterfeit money, a recreated 1970's autopsy suite, artefacts and memorabilia.

If that's not enough, you can book a walking tour of the neighbourhood that will take you through the sins of the city. This is well worth a look when you are in Vancouver on one of our Western Canada Motorhome Holidays.
