Fall Foliage Drives on Canada’s West Coast

Posted by | Destinations, RV Culture


Canada offers some of the most scenic fall foliage in the world. Fire up your RV and cruise over to the Great White North’s west coast for some of the best fall scenery you’ll ever see. The west coast’s mild temperatures, ocean backdrop and towering mountains also mean you’ll feel inspired to stay active on your fall adventures.

Queen Elizabeth Park — Vancouver

You don’t even have to venture out into the wilderness to see some of Canada’s most vibrantly-colored leaves. Queen Elizabeth Park, in Vancouver, is 130-acres in size, and it offers a wide range of deciduous trees and evergreens. The bright yellows, reds and oranges really pop against the dark greens of the pine needles.

Tofino — Vancouver Island

Tofino is a small district with a huge amount of beauty. It’s a place where you can watch the sunset over the ocean after spending a day on the trails in the ancient temperate rainforest. If you thought Tofino was breathtaking in the summer months, you’ll be wowed when the colors peak, and Tofino really comes alive in fall. Take a seaplane ride to see all of Tofino’s colors from above.

Merritt to Ashcroft — Interior British Columbia

The 104-kilometer drive from Merritt to Ashcroft in the Okanagan Valley will give you a picturesque look at the interior of British Columbia in fall. Stop for a picnic at Logan Lake to enjoy a meal among the oranges, reds and yellows of the trees, and take some time to check out the Highland Valley Copper Mine to break up the drive. Don’t forget to bring your camera, because you’ll be snapping photos the entire way.
