Half a road trip planned, return through mid Canada or northen US?

Jump to last reply

I am starting a new topic that is related to my others regarding our summer road trip for 4 and a half - 5 weeks in July/August. This Australian family of 6 (boys- 15, 12, 10 girl - 6)
has purchased a tent trailer that is fully equipped and the loose plan (will tighten it soon as I have flights to book when we get back..) is as below-

Vernon -Banff- Jasper - Calgary - Drumheller- Medicine Hat- Regina - Winnipeg - Thompson (MA) leave car & camper..(any suggestions where? and go on train to Churchill. Stay 2 nights with package..

This is as far as I have got.

The options are: A
1. Train back to Thompson, collect car & camper.
2. Drive to Wekuska Falls (much there..?) or Flin Flon (?) or both
3. Then to Prince Albert, Edmonton,then to - is it Liara Hot Springs?
4.Wells Gray Clearwater
5 Jasper (Wouldn't then do it on the way through to Calgary as above)
6. Vernon

Option B
1. Get back to Thompson on train, drive back to Winnipeg
3. Then go through the US to get home.
Perhaps MInnesota, North Dakota, etc through to Spokane and then to Vernon.

Really not sure what there is to do in the US in the northern states but can keep googling.. We can't be too rushed otherwise we won't enjoy what we see.

Option C
Don't go to Churchill to see the Beluga whales/ maybe Polar bears.. though wonder whether the Northern Lights can be seen in July..?

So I have ground to a halt and would apreciate your thoughts, you guys have been great so far.
When we do get back from this camping trip (however that may be,..) we are going to regroup for a few days and then we are flying to Toronto, for a few days, driving to Niagara Falls (this is already booked) and then we will fly to Quebec for stay in a VRBO for a few days then fly back to Kelowna. So very excited that this bit is coming together..
