When is the last time you did something for the first time?

Our Westy is encouraging you to step away from cruising on auto-pilot through your daily routine and inviting you to get into our driver’s seat where new experiences will bring you excitement and adventure. Feel a sense of aliveness as you explore our own backyard and immerse yourself in Mother Nature’s beauty.

We have enjoyed many days on the road in our vans and we want to give you the opportunity to see what we see and feel what we feel.

Our vans are driven and maintained on a regular basis. The Volkswagen Westfalia campervans are in their 30’s (that’s 60 in human years) and are meant for slow-rolling travel, reminding you it’s about the journey, and not the destination. We recommend driving this van not more than 400kms per day and to drive at a max of 100km/hr. These are manual transmissions and require experience with a stick shift. Please note our vans are not able to accommodate child car seats.

The van sleeps 4 and has a kitchenette with a 2-burner gas stove, sink and fridge. It is equipped with cooking essentials. The pop-top roof has a skylight and extra bed. There is decent cabinet space, rotating front seats, a dining table, electric hook ups, propane tank, and privacy curtains. This Westy is equipped with a solar panel and heater, ideal for fall or winter nights.

If you are needing pick up or drop off services contact us directly to see if it's possible.

Last but not least, in sharing the van life and open roads with you, we honour our late brother Michael, who journeyed for 8 years with brain cancer. He lived with a huge spirit of seeking adventure and explored our Canadian landscape and beyond. He reached miles, both in width and in height and his life was expansive and rich because of what he chose to make of it. He was a true inspiration and modelled kindness, bravery, resilience, humility and demonstrated the power of the human mind and what we are capable of. Check out our amazing world through his eyes on Instagram at @clements1985.

    Notre expérience à été extraordinaire avec ce Westfalia et les bons conseils de Arno et Paula. Vraiment gentils et accommodants. Ils ont pensé à tout. Ce déplacer avec ce véhicule a été le gros coup de coeur de notre voyage. Plaisant a conduire,Facile à stationner, économe et tellement pratique .
    Je recommande et referais encore la même chose. Thanks !

    The rental was amazing and how can you beat seeing the national parks of Banff and Jasper in a Westfalia! Arno was awesome giving us a walk through and checking on us throughout the trip. The only thing I couldn’t figure out was the fridge to switch to propane. We really didn’t need it in the end, so no worries for us! No issues and the owners gave us their pass to use for our trip, would definitely rent again!

    The van was exactly as advertised. It has a hip look, mechanically sound and was very comfortable to stay in.
