Benedict Walker, writing for Lonely Planet:

The Trans-Canada Highway is one of the world’s longest roads, spanning 8030km from St Johnโ€™s, Newfoundland, to Victoria, British Columbia. The route spans all ten provinces and flirts with the Atlantic and Pacific oceans at its limits. It crosses four islands, passes through tundra, boreal forests, national parks and prairies, glaciers, a few thousand lakes and twists beneath the shadows of vast peaks. But you need more than wanderlust to hit the road; you need a car, a plan and what’s that about winter tyres? Never fear, this practical guide will see you zooming across Canada in no time.
