Every good road trip needs a good soundtrack. There’s nothing like music to put you in the Zen zone as you cruise through Western Canada, through national parks, over mountain passes, past countryside and city. Just in time for the Junos, we polled the #SeekersAmbassador crew and ZenSeekers readers to create the ultimate road trip adventure playlist for your summer travels. 

You’ll find a mix of musical genres old and new with a good dose of Canadian musical artists to pump you up, chill you out, get in the flow and sing along to as you get out on the open road.

#SeekersAmbassador Ultimate Road Trip Playlist

We posed a simple question to our #SeekersAmbassador crew: what music forms the soundtrack to your roadtripping adventures around Western Canada?

The answers were a mix of classic hits and new bangers, and everything in between, featuring artists as diverse as Dan Mangan, The Funk Hunters, Gogol Bordello, K. Flay, Gramatik, the Tragically Hip and more.  

Press play, then scroll through some specific song suggestions and Zen ideas from the #SeekersAmbassador crew.
