Ever been lost in a foreign country with no idea where to go, no knowledge of the local language, and no access to the Internet? That’s why we never go anywhere without a good old-fashioned map. The best choice for your Canada map is one that’s comprehensive, sturdy, and compact. After a lot of research, we found the best one for you.
Our favorite Canada map: Canada West, Canada Central and Canada East by National Geographic
We chose three maps made by National Geographic because hands-down they have the best scale, are the most up to date and the most sturdy of the ones we tested.
Many of the maps we have used on our travels have fallen apart in our hands or dissolved when wet. Not so these Canada maps by National Geographic — they hold up to the toughest travel conditions.
Different elevations are shown in different colors, contour lines make the topography even more clear and a graticule helps those traveling with a GPS.
