Located in Calgary, Alberta we are just 10 minutes from the international airport and also at the doorstep to the magnificent Canadian Rockies.
No matter if it is just a short romantic escape or a month-long adventure, Backpacker’s Loft provides you with all the basics you need for your road trip adventure.
Just bring your backpack. Then go shopping and fill up your fridge.
If you like tenting, you will definitely love this! Take tenting to the next level, literally!
The trunk area of the campervan has a built in kitchen galley so there is no luggage storage in the back. It is recommendable to travel with a duffle bag or backpack instead of a hard shell suitcase. Then you can store your luggage inside the campervan.
Regular pick up time is after 3pm. Get on the road earlier than that and have more time to enjoy the trip
Regular drop off time is between 9am-11am. Keep the van and enjoy the trip half a day longer for a discounted price.
Very cozy and warm for the colder nights

Where to start...
Nous avons eu une super expérience avec Wally ! Tout est très bien pensé. Tout y est, il ne manque plus que nos vêtements pour partir à l’aventure. Le van est spacieux, très fonctionnel (rangement, prise électrique, usb). Même les jours de pluie, il est possible de manger à l’intérieur du van.
Ute et Harry sont disponibles pour répondre à toutes nos questions. Ils sont très arrangeants et sont même venus nous chercher à l’aéroport.
C’est le van idéal pour partir en toute sérénité! Merci Ute et Harry !

I put this Grand Caravan on reservation for 3 weeks during peak season 9 months ahead of my planned trip. I spoke with the owners Ute and Harry several times providing me with all detailed information about Wally. They responded very quickly and kindly. Offering me extras at no cost and even offered a pickup at the airport early in the morning. I was forced to cancel due to the high expenses of this 3 week trip and my health. I discovered that my reservation money was not owed back to me due to the contract with Outdoorsy.
Ute said she would give it back if she rented out the time I had committed too. Leaving the issue as it was I thanked them for being helpful and patience. By the end of the day Ute had offered the deposit amount back in full. They didn't have to and still did. That is customer service far and beyond. Ute and Harry are people you want to do business with. Bless them both Merry Christmas.
Thank you Chris, we really appreciate the review and are very saddened by the news that you will not be able to make the trip.
We had an incredible experience from the moment we reserved our trip with Wally until the end when Ute personally dropped us off at the airport. She literally went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed to be prepared to take off into the Canadian Rockies during the early days of October. To be honest, we didn't need much because of how prepared Ute was (she will reach out before and after the trip to recommend/confirm everything). We were a little worried about the cold but were surprised by how warm & comfortable the tent above the van kept us during nights that it snowed (we were actually sweating in our 30 degree sleeping bags). The van is equipped for anything camping related, its kept extremely clean & drives like brand new. I can guarantee anything you're thinking about bringing she has already stored inside the van. This made it easy for us to take off for our 4 day trip immediately after going over the paperwork and stopping for groceries. We took off for Banff the first night, Yoho the second & Jasper our 3rd night. It was an amazing experience and not one issue came up. We even ran into another couple renting one of Ute's identical vans during our trip who were on a much longer trip. If either of her vans are available, I would reserve ASAP! Thanks again Ute!

Wally & The Backpackers loft we're incredible! The day started with a complimentary airport shuttle, a 30min walk through of the vehicle and off we were! 'Wally' had everything we could ever want, from cooking equipment, to a comfortable mattress/tent, a full fridge, storage and maps/games!
