by Jason Crowley 19 Mar 2024

Traveling through Canada's vast landscapes can be an adventure of a lifetime, whether you’re soaring through the skies or cruising along scenic roadways. Each mode of travel offers unique opportunities to explore the diversity of our country. Here’s your ultimate guide to making the most of your Canadian travels, complete with the perfect Northern Sun gear to pack.

Traveling by Car: Exploring Canada’s Scenic Routes

Canada’s highways are nothing short of epic, with breathtaking routes like the Cabot Trail, the Icefields Parkway, and the Trans-Canada Highway. Traveling by car allows you the freedom to stop at hidden gems, from secluded lakes to local diners.

Essential Gear for Road Trips:

  • Layered Clothing: Conditions can change quickly, especially in the mountains. Pack versatile pieces like our lightweight down jackets and waterproof shells.
  • Comfortable Footwear: Bring shoes that are comfortable for driving and suitable for impromptu hiking or city walks.
  • Travel Bags: Use our durable backpacks for easy packing and accessibility.

Tips for a Smooth Journey:

  • Plan Your Route: Make sure your GPS is updated and consider a physical map as a backup.
  • Pack Snacks and Water: Keep hydrated and energized, especially on long stretches without stops.
  • Safety Kit: Include a first aid kit, flashlight, and a blanket.

Traveling by Air: Flying Through Canadian Skies

Air travel is a quick way to jump between Canada’s vast regions. Whether you’re flying from the rocky shores of Newfoundland to the mountainous terrains of British Columbia, or heading north to the Yukon, each flight offers a window to Canada’s diverse landscapes.

Essential Gear for Air Travel:

  • Compact Layers: Our packable down jackets can be stowed away easily and provide warmth when needed.
  • Travel Accessories: Organize your travel documents and essentials in our secure, easy-access travel bags.
  • Comfort Items: A lightweight scarf or wrap can be a versatile comfort item in fluctuating cabin temperatures.

Tips for a Hassle-Free Flight:

  • Check Luggage Requirements: Be aware of size and weight restrictions for your luggage and plan accordingly.
  • Arrive Early: Give yourself plenty of time for check-in, security, and unexpected delays.
  • Stay Hydrated: The dry air in planes can be dehydrating, so drink plenty of water.
