Summertime Adventures in Canada’s Parks

The long wait is over, Spring is here and Summer is on the way!

To celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, Parks Canada is waiving all park access fees.  This year more than ever, make the most of your vacation by exploring the beautiful parks around you!  If you are anything like us getting all of your gear, friends, dogs and camping equipment out can be somewhat of a challenge.  Fortunately Yakima has a whole host of solutions available to you.PaulinaRVKayak-43

Check out the comprehensive list of cycling routes and trails listed on Parks Canada’s website. Cycle to the top of Mount Revelstoke! Exploring PEI along the Gulf Shore Way sounds great! In order to get your bikes there a hitch mount or roof top mount bike rack are great options.


The ultimate tray rack, DrTray is light, durable, secure, and takes it all on— road, mountain, and fat bikes with 5″ tires. And it’s adaptable—add an EZ+1 to carry a third bike. Bike clearance is unmatched—no pedals gouging paint or brake levers cutting saddles. Attachment is a piece of cake with the locking SpeedKnob, the tilt lever is accessible and easy, and the rack folds for easy transport. Exceptional security is built in with a comprehensive SKS cable lock system.

If your adventure will take you away overnight, there’s no need to book a hotel if you bring along Yakima’s Skyrise rooftop tent. Set up pretty much anywhere in minutes and you’ve got a perfect home away from home.


Light, strong, easy to pitch, and technically advanced, this is a tent built for gnarly wilderness weather, but is totally awesome for festivals and weekend road trips. Lighter than canvas car-tops, the SkyRise’s body is made from Ripstop 210D nylon with a mesh panel that ventilates and lets you see the stars. The weather-shedding 210D fly has a long-wearing waterproof PU coating. Quick to install – no tools required. Plus, our vehicle-specific fit data ensures safety and user experience that is second to none.

If you prefer to travel with a bit more space, an R.V. is a great way to get out and explore the outdoors. All the comforts of home should include your trusty bicycles, of course! If you plan on taking bikes with you on your R.V. or trailer, make sure your bike rack is rated to take the extra torque that this positioning places on the hitch. Yakima’s LongHaul rack is designed specifically for this purpose, ensuring that your bikes and gear are safe for your long journey!


A bike rack built specifically for the long miles and rigorous demands of RV and travel trailer use. Durable, stable, and secure, it hauls four bikes in the SuperCush ZipStrip™ cradles. The hitch mount design is easy to install and take off, and the arms fold out of the way when not in use—great for tight parking spaces. Exceptional security is built in with a full SKS security package that locks up the bikes and the rack. All that, and a built-in bottle opener, too. Fits 2″ receivers.

Getting out on the water is a breath taking way to experience many of Canada’s National parks.  Canoeing Emerald Lake, Island hop the Broken Island Group in Pacific Rim Nation park or take in the seals and icebergs in Terra Nova National Park.  So many great memories waiting to be made.  Yakima has many class leading canoe/kayak/SUP transportation options including the Jay Low.

There may be divas on your road trip, but this boat carrier is very low maintenance. With multiple settings, the JayLow allows you to carry one boat in J-Cradle position, two boats in vertical position plus folds down when not in use.
