The best places to spend a weekend away from it all

Volkswagen’s 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive vehicles

No matter the season and no matter the kind of adventure you’re up for, Canada offers plenty of options to get outdoors and away from it all. And with Volkswagen’s vehicles equipped with 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive, you’ll have more options to leave the beaten path behind and get up close with nature, even if it’s just for the weekend. From beaches to mountains, and everywhere in between, the combination of Canada’s iconic landscapes and Volkswagen’s road-hugging 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive make it easier than ever to enjoy the great outdoors confidently.

Alpine Lakes Adventures

Alpine Lakes may be a bit of a drive from most major cities, but they’re generally worth the extra time it takes to get there. Far from the constant motion of city life, serene mountain lakes offer a perfect place to leave the commotion behind and get into some of nature’s most impressive landscapes. You can expect these destinations to be crowded on weekends, especially in the summer, so for a more quiet experience, plan your weekend away in the fall or early winter. Of course, you’ll want to make sure you take the right vehicle when road conditions can limit how much of these lakes you’re able to access, requiring traction tires or 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive. So, when you’re planning a winter or fall excursion, Volkswagen’s line of 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive vehicles will help get you into some of the most spectacular scenery confidently and comfortably.

Mountain Lodges and Ski Resorts

There is no shortage of snow-covered peaks to explore in western Canada, making this an unforgettable way to spend a weekend. A backdrop of picturesque peaks and steep valleys can offer a welcome breath of fresh mountain air to revive even the most city-weary souls. With many lodges open all year, you can plan the perfect weekend to hunt for wildflowers, see the autumn colors change, or get lost in a snowy winter wonderland without having to rough it too much. Getting to mountain lodges and resorts can be dicey during the fall, winter, and spring months, but they’re some of the best times of the year to visit. With Volkswagen’s dependable 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive on your side, no matter how unpredictable the weather is, you can keep your plans and experience the best the mountains have to offer.

River and Scenic Drives

Whether you’re closer to the St. Lawrence River or the Sea-to-Sky Highway, there’s no better way to experience the best nature has to offer then by taking the scenic route. Steep ascents, long winding turns, and emerald-lined descents are the perfect places to put the sure footing of 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive to the test. On every Canadian’s bucket list, scenic drives like the TransCanda Highway are sure to remind you how important it is to get out into the landscape. Take your time and enjoy sweeping vistas, snap that perfect photo, or hunt for waterfalls — whatever your weekend plans, Volkswagen’s 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive cars are winding, dirt road-ready and will get you there and beyond.

Hot Springs Escapes

In some remote corners of Canada, you’ll find just about as much nature and wide open spaces as you can handle. Whether you’re looking to explore Liard River Hot Springs, Ainsworth, or any hot spring in between, these weekend getaways promise peak relaxation and plenty of distance from the noise and hustle of the city. Volkswagen’s 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive is so responsive it engages before you even know there’s a problem, anticipating loss of traction and engaging the system so you stay in control and on your way to the most scenic hot springs. Ideal drive torque is automatically distributed to the rear wheels when you need it, which saves fuel to keep your weekend plans on track. Count on Volkswagen’s 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive to give you the flexibility and handling to get up close to nature confidently.

There are only so many weekends a year and the great Canadian wilderness awaits you, so make them all memorable with Volkswagen 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive.
