Road trip your way to Canada’s National Park

Posted: Oct 05 2017

Road trip to canadas national parks

 

Summer may be over, but you can still explore Canada during the Autumn

 

To celebrate Canada’s 150th, admission to Canada's National Parks are free with the Parks Canada Discovery Pass. Below are the top 3 national parks that I highly recommend for a perfect getaway from the city. highly recommend visiting these National Parks in the Autumn as you'll catch the beautiful Canadian foliage.

 

Bruce Peninsula

 

This was my most recent trip, and I was able to use the Parks Canada Discovery pass for free entry to Flowerpot Island and Bruce Peninsula. Make sure you leave early, so you can get parking spots at the Grotto (by Cyprus Lake) if you are planning to go there. We arrived at 10 am, but tickets were booked till 4 pm as it is first to come first serve. We managed to squeeze in a boat ride to Flowerpot Island as well for $40 in our one-day trip which you can purchase there. Once you get to the Grotto, there is a hidden cave that is hidden away. It is tough to climb down, but if you ask around, a lot of people will be willing to help guide you down. Even though my friend and I did manage to visit the main locations all in one day, camping overnight or renting a bed and breakfast isn't a bad idea either.
