Summer road trip for Australian family of 6, from BC to Ontario, ideas..?

Jump to last reply

We are an Australian family with 4 children living in BC for the year and would like to make the most of our Summer break by seeing the great parts of Canada without feeling the urge to lose a kid or two along the way..! Their ages are 6, (girl) 10, 12, 15
(3 boys)

I am trying to plan a road trip itinerary for approx 6-7 weeks and need to find accomodation along the way that sleeps 6 without a huge cost. Or would it more cost effective to hire a trailer?

Very keen to get to Thompson then go on the train to Churchill to hopefully see some polar bears. Ideas/questions for trip so far are:
Rodeo - Calgary (July 5 ...) other things to see here?
Edminton.. on the way back?
What is there to see in Saskatchewan?
How long to drive from Thompson to Niagara falls? What can we see along the way?
Things to see in Winnipeg on the way back?
Would PEI just be way too much to add on..?

Any suggestions on an itinerary, route, time to travel & spend at places would be SO helpful. It feels very overwhelming to plan at the moment..!

Thanks so much.
