A Virtual Field Trip Across Canada

Canada is a country filled with amazing diversity and beauty. From mountains to prairies, urban explosion to rural farm lands, castles and cathedrals to lighthouses and green gables. This month, the Canadian Homeschool Blogging Team is giving you a virtual tour of recommended places to visit around where they each live. Come join us on a journey through our provinces. canadafieldtrip Rebecca – Virtual Field Trip in the Thompson Okanagan

Want to go on a virtual field trip through BC with your kids? Come and explore beautiful British Columbia along with my family. We will take you on a virtual field trip through the Thompson/Okanagan region

Alexandra – Prince Edward Island: A Virtual Trip for Families & Homeschoolers

I am very excited to write about our gentle island and to share with you our favourite places. It was difficult to choose only a few places to write about!

Katie – Five Nature Based Places to Visit in Central Ontario

Ontario offers so many opportunities to experience nature up close and hands on. It would be impossible to list them all so my children and I have come up with a list of five of our favourite outdoor field trips located in central Ontario. Theses are all places we have visited for day trips, some are only open seasonally so always double-check days and hours of operation.

 Bonnie – A Virtual Field around Vancouver Island

Let’s start our virtual field trip near Beacon Hill Park, at Mile 0 of the TransCanada Highway. Every time I see this sign, I want to go on a road trip. Before we take off, however, take a few hours to admire the view of the ocean (and watch a cruise ship or container ship go by), play in the park, and watch the goats run at the petting farm. Now let’s hit the road.

Annette – A Virtual Trip Through Ontario

Ontario is a land of pine forests, woodland spaces, big cities and small towns. We are filled with a variety of things to experience.

 Lisa – A Virtual Field Trip

Welcome to Quebec; where I happen to be living for the moment… where ever you go; overall Quebec is very family friendly and there is lots to see and do 🙂

Debbie – A Virtual Field Trip Through Waterloo Region

There are many wonderful places within Ontario that I could talk of. Niagara Falls, numerous historical sites (like Lucy Maud Montgomery’s house!), nature trails, parks (both nature and amusement), museums, beaches, quaint towns and big cities. There are just so many wonderful things within this Province, but I’d like to share one very specific place I feel is worth travelling to if you live within a few hours. That place is the Waterloo Region Museum: Doon Heritage Museum.

Andrea – Alberta: More Than Just the Calgary Stampede

There isn’t one province that you cannot just “ohhhh and ahhhh” over what it has to offer… I was born and raised here in Alberta, and in all honesty, there are places here that I have yet to see with my family.

Lee – Roadschooling through the Yukon

The Yukon tourism tagline is “Larger than Life” and it certainly lives up to that. While not very populous in terms of humans, it is full of breath taking scenery, abundant wildlife and living stories of the Klondike Gold Rush. We firmly believe that coming to the Yukon (summer or winter) is a must do for all Canadians! With summer just around the corner we thought we’d start to plant some seeds out there…

 Kimberly – A Virtual Field Trip Through Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia is a beautiful province, well worth visiting! We fell in love with Cape Breton Island in particular, the moment the plane landed (we moved here from Ontario eight years ago). Join me and my family for a virtual field trip, with breathtaking views and fun activities for all!

Ellie – A Virtual Trip around The Acadian Shore of Southwest Nova Scotia

We have stunning ocean shore lines that wrap around this whole end of Nova Scotia and yet you go inland just minutes to find picturesque lakes and rivers that run like veins though the land. I’m always amazed when we go on a scenic Sunday afternoon drive at the diverse landscape and abundant bodies of fresh and salt water everywhere.

Kalista – 10 Things to Do in Toronto with Kids

If you’re heading to the GTA and looking for some fun things to do with your kids, check out this list of 10 things to do in Toronto with kids!

 Joelle – Toronto – A Homeschooler’s Trove for Field Trip Ideas

We started homeschooling shortly after moving {to Canada}, and field Trips have always been part of our yearly activities, whether with a homeschooling group, or with the family.

Tammy – A Virtual Tour Through Saskatchewan

We’ve been in Saskatchewan for almost 5 years now and the beauty and charm of this province has grown on me. As part of the Canadian Homeschooling Bloggers Team, this month we’re giving you a virtual tour of our province to showcase the wonders of our country. I was really excited about this topic because it gave me the opportunity to dig a little deeper into some of the historical, natural and cultural gems Saskatchewan has to offer.

Amber – Welcome to Our Neck of the Woods. A Tour of SSM Ontario Attractions.

This far North in Ontario it can feel pretty isolating with only the Trans Canada Highway connecting us to the rest of the world. If one is to scratch the surface though you can find all sorts of interesting sites to see and keep you occupied. Some that you may find on a site like Trip Advisor and some that you may miss if you don’t know they exist.


If you are looking for some great resources to travel across Canada – visit our sponsors from this month’s post: Parks Canada, Rough Guides, and Sharla from The Chaos & The Clutter – just in time for some summer travelling. 🙂

Covering where to go, what to see, where to sleep, and what activities to join in on from coast to coast, it’s every Canadian traveller’s handbook. What trip would be complete without some amazing field trips?

Written by a homeschooling mom, The Ultimate Guide to Field Trips in Canada ebook covers locations all over the country to stop and check out. From well-known tourist places to lesser known sites like factory tours, both in-person and virtual locations. A handy guide to what’s next door or what’s on the other side of the country.

    I would go to Newfoundland (we’ve had to cancel our visit for the past two summers, tear) and/or The Northwest Territories (or anywhere up there). Both of these items are on my bucket list and quite honestly, they’re the only things on my bucket list. Must get them checked off!

    Besos, Sarah

  • by Jenn Posted April 15, 2015 3:18 pm

    I started a FB page for families (mostly homeschooling families) to plan their cross-Canada trips. There is SO much information out there!! We, ourselves, are travelling across Canada this summer. I would love to win this contest, not only for my family’s sake, but to share with the families on FB, as well! We try to give good guide ideas, passes and bundles, books that we’ve found helpful — your bundle give away is EVERYTHING we need!
