At the border of Alberta and British Columbia, you’ll find the Columbia Icefields 4.5 hours from Calgary with your RV rental. The glacier runs alongside Highway 93, and once there, you can take a guided walk or drive (in a specialized vehicle) across this seemingly endless display of ice.
Edmonton is another worthy stop in your motorhome tour, as it’s just three hours from Calgary and offers a myriad of activities and attractions no matter the time of year.
