Five Canadian Reading Week Group Trip Ideas for a True North Getaway

Reading week is one of the busiest weeks for travel to warm destinations for students (and professors). But you don’t have to sit in the heat to rejuvenate from your studies – you can have just as much fun while staying in Canada. Whether you’re an international student looking for an authentic Canadian experience, or just a local looking to stay close to home, these 5 Canadian reading week trip ideas are perfect for short or long stays (pssst- they’re great for March Break, too!). Plan a group trip, and let Badder Bus get you started on your journey


Mais oui! Montréal is the largest city in Quebec and situated on an island in the St. Lawrence river – and it doesn’t get much more Canadian than this! Climb Mount Royal, and visit the Notre Dame Basilica, the Biodome, or the Olympic Stadium! Be sure to wander the quaint streets of Old Montreal and enjoy delicious poutine and world-famous bagels. C’est magnifique!


Fresh pine, crisp snow, and the sounds of the woods… venture into the Canadian Shield for an authentic Canadian backwoods adventure. Reconnect with nature while surrounded by vast trees, towering rock faces and wildlife. Off-season rates make renting a Muskoka cottage a great group getaway! 


Canada’s capital city is jam packed with things to do – especially in the wintertime! Soak up some Canadian politics with a visit to Parliament Hill, brush up on your history at the Canadian Museum of History or the Diefenbunker, and enjoy artisan food and designer shopping in the ByWard Market. Skate all 7.8km of the Rideau Canal to prove you’re a true Canadian, and finish it all off with a delicious BeaverTail.

Blue Mountain

Hit the slopes! Just northwest of Collingwood, Blue Mountain is Ontario’s only year-round mountain resort and spa. With ski and snowboard hills, pools, skating, snowshoeing, horse-drawn carriage rides and more, Blue Mountain is the ultimate winter recreation destination. Blue Mountain Village is also the perfect backdrop for your reading week Instagram photos!


Experience the rush of the Niagara Falls and the excitement of nightlife. Or, journey to Niagara-On-The-Lake for a slower adventure. Take in historical forts, scenic views and world-class wineries. The entire Niagara district has hundreds of adventures to discover!

Regardless of the destination, the best way to have a memorable reading week is by spending it with friends. Wherever your journey takes you, Badder Bus will take your group there. Give us a call at 1-800-668-1974 to book stress-free transportation for your group to your reading week destination.
