If travelling from Calgary, Highway 1 is one of the most beautiful scenic drives in Canada. This route takes you through Banff National Park and past Lake Louise – worth a stop.
If you are making your way to Revelstoke from Kelowna, you will pass through Canada’s world renowned wine country, the Okanagan Valley. The drive is roughly 2.5 hours and is a scenic drive.
When hiring a car in the winter, be sure the car has winter tires installed. Winter tires are a requirement if you are driving on BC highways. They will help grip the roads in snowy/ icy conditions. We also highly recommend checking the road conditions prior to travelling in case of closures due to weather conditions, avalanche control, accidents, construction and maintenance.
Revelstoke only has one car rental service in town and only allows for local travel only. Be sure to plan travel ahead of time if you are wanting to pick up and drop off at specific destinations.
