This thread is intended to contain information useful to people travelling to Canada - please feel free to add anything relevant to it! Before we start though, here's some advice from the TT team:

  1. Do a TT search! At least five posters a week ask what to do in Toronto, whether to go visit Niagara Falls on their way around the world, and whether it's possible to work under the table/overstay a tourist visa. The road is well travelled. Find those threads, add a reply (which brings the…

I'm considering a road trip in BC in early-mid August. Vancouver-Kelowna-Nelson-Fairmont Hot Springs-Donald-Kamloops-Whistler-Vancouver, first along highway 3, then higway 95, then highway 1.

This is the approximate route: https://goo.gl/JLJoqP

How easy is it to find a campground along this route? Would it be OK if I go without reservations, or am I setting up myself for some bad experience? I'm not planning to do extended hikes, so I'm not really considering backcountry campsites.

I'm…

I'm planning a fly-drive holiday for the end of September for 14 nights. Planning to stop off in the places listed below.
My question is; how many nights do you think I should spend at each place, and which places should be dropped from the itinerary/doesn't need an overnight?

The route:
Fly in to Calgary
Banff
Revelstoke
Kelowna
Vancouver
Whistler
Clearwater
Jasper
Lake Louise
Return to Calgary

Thanks!

Hello explorers! My boyfriend and I are traveling to Newfoundland in August, and we will be staying by Gros Morne National Park for a few nights. We are really interested in hiking the park, especially Western Brook Pond, but we can't seem to find much information about it. We specifically want to hike to the top of the gorge to get views like those in the links below. Is this hike one that can be done in a day? Or is it recommended that we camp overnight? Do we need a guide for this hike? If…

Does anyone have any experience in whale watching in Quebec? Good companies to use and good places to stay in the Tadoussac area of Quebec? Thanks!

I've found one other post about something like this, but it's from a few years ago so thought I'd get a new assessment.

I'm heading to Calgary at the start of September to travel through the national parks etc. I had planned to hire an RV/motorhome, but I've stupidly left it too late to find anything thats not way too big or too expensive.

I'm wondering if there is anything stopping me from hiring a transit/cargo van from someone like Enterprise and 'camping' in the back? Will campgrounds…

I have a query on paying for the Canadian ETA (electronic travel authorisation).

Does your home address you put on your ETA application have to match the address of the credit
card you use to pay for it?

(When you get to the payment page, it just tells you to put in the credit card details, but not an address)

It's just the credit card I will be using has a different address to the one I put on the ETA, so don't want the card to get blocked or anything.

Hope someone can help.
