Update – 2020-06-22

Well it is the end of June and we are fully operational with social distancing, hand sanitizer and disinfecting protocols in place! Provincial and National Parks are open/reopening and while non-essential interprovincial travel is still not recommended there are heaps of spots here in our backyard that are well worth discovering. This is an awesome opportunity to get out and discover Alberta and support our local businesses!

Update 2020-05-09

Guys! Some good news was received recently! Alberta parks is hoping to have public washrooms and facilities available when the campgrounds open to Albertans in June – which means our campervans can get out adventuring soon!! In celebration we have removed our short rental fee (previously for rentals less than 7 days) for the 2020 season – so if you have been wondering about giving one of our vans or rooftop tent rentals a try and the great outdoors is calling you – now would be a great time to go. That said – there are still social distancing rules that we will all need to be following to ensure everyone’s safety while adventuring.

North Campervans will be looking to do the following to ensure we are doing our best to keep everyone safe.

  1. All van equipment (kitchen and bedding sets included) and common touch surfaces will be sanitized according to guidelines provided by Alberta Health. As always, customers are welcome to provide their own bedding and kitchenware instead of utilizing ours. 
  2. For pickup and return of the vans we will be providing links via email for paperwork and van orientations to be completed beforehand to minimize physical interaction. Hand sanitizer will also be available on site.

Our customers will be asked to do the following:

  1. Minimize contact in the smaller communities. ie. Grab groceries from the store you normally would get them from if you’re from Calgary.
  2. When heading out to different hikes or scenic locations – go with a couple of options in mind just in case the first one or two you get to are too busy. Social distancing is still to be practiced so we ask that you do your part and if there are too many cars at a trailhead or scenic spot – that you try for another spot. Getting an early start can also assist with ensuring you’re not adding to a crowd.

Hope you are all staying safe and healthy! We’re sure everyone is like us and on Covid-19 overload – but as it HAS had a big impact world wide and left some big question marks regarding… well everything – adventure and travel included – we wanted to take a moment to share a quick update on what is happening with North Campervans and Alberta/Canada currently so you have some information to guide you while thinking on travels with us in 2020.

After everything being fully locked down we are now seeing some businesses, parks and public facilities opening or at least looking to over the next month or so. For up to date information on what is available please check out the following websites:

There is still some uncertainty regarding when/if travel bans will be lifted for those out of the province/country. As a result, we have updated our payment and cancellation policies to provide some extra peace of mind and flexibility for our hopeful travellers.

Updated Payment Terms
Balance of rentals will now be charged only 2 weeks before the start of your trip.

Updated Cancellation Policy
Cancel within two weeks of your trip and receive a full credit towards a future trip. Cancel more than two weeks before pickup and receive a full refund. Cancellations are to be made via email.

As always, we are available via phone or email and look forward to discussing future trips, campervans, and outdoor adventures with you! Take care everyone!
