5 Best Family Summer Vacations In Western Canada

Athabasca Glacier - Western Canada

Jasper, Alberta

One of the most beautiful destinations in all of Canada, Jasper is a must when looking at a trip to the Canadian Rockies. And while many parents will want to spend their time drooling at the scenery, the rest of the family is going to be just as spellbound.

Victoria, British Columbia

Just a hop, skip and a jump from popular Vancouver is the eighth largest island in the world and Canada’s second largest island. Trivia: It contains the world’s largest island within an island within an island.

Calgary, Alberta

“Cowtown” is Canada’s third-largest municipality. And while its skyscrapers lend itself to any big city, it is also steeped in western culture. Calgary is not far from some other fine summer family vacations.

Edmonton, Alberta

Edmonton is home to North America’s largest mall (and the world’s largest from 1981 to 2004). If you’re not into shopping, don’t worry. With year round festivals, “Canada’s Festival City” offers much more than just a mall!

Kelowna, British Columbia

Definitely not your typical destination, but one of my personal favourites. Kelowna is about a 45-minute flight east of Vancouver in the Okanagan Valley, surrounded by provincial parks, pine forest, vineyards, orchards, and mountains. We love how friendly it is for family summer vacations.

    We can’t wait to visit Kelowna soon! After a fabulous road trip in the Canadian Rockies, this will be very different: a not so touristy place where we go with almost zero expectations. 🙂
