If the ongoing pandemic has derailed your usual winter travel plans, you can either seek out a warmer climate on this side of the border, or embrace the snow. Either way, there are great winter RV destinations in Canada.
Warmer climates within Canada
Milder, less snow-filled winters can be found in BC’s southern coastal communities and Islands, as well as some spots in the Okanagan.
Canada’s warmest winters can be enjoyed in Victoria, BC, on Vancouver Island, as well as several nearby communities popular with year-round RVers, including Parksville and Nanaimo. The Southern Gulf Islands are also great spots to spend a milder winter.
Further in, Osoyoos, BC offers a unique desert environment and is home to some of the warmest average temperatures in the country. A popular destination for snowbirders, the lively lakeside town in the southern Interior of BC boasts a low average annual snowfall and a drier climate than the west coast.
If you’re looking for campsite suggestions, we previously shared some of our favourite spots to snowbird in Canada.
Embrace the chill
If you can’t escape it, embrace it! If you can’t remove yourself to a warmer climate, plan an adventure in the snow this winter.
Many ski resorts welcome RVers, offering long or short-term overnight parking at the hill. For winter pursuits like cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or ice fishing, many provincial or national parks offer year-round RVing.
