Eastern Canada by camper

24 day camper trip | September-October 2022

This trip was designed for travelers drawn to Canada’s fabulous fall colours, with no shortage of other colourful highlights along the way.

Indian Summer Trip
from Ontario to Quebec and Nova Scotia

To take full advantage of the Indian Summer we propose a trip through central Ontario and Quebec starting in the latter half September, followed by a tour of coastal Nova Scotia and Cape Breton.

A fair distance, but driving is part of the fun. Traveling with a motorhome adds flexibility. The camper will be left in Halifax towards the end of the trip.

Traveling this route from June to September would be equally rewarding – no fall colours but many a whale can be spotted instead.
