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…

My family (kids 13 and 9) will be traveling from Custer, SD, to Theodore Roosevelt NP (doing the scenic drive), then heading to Banff on August 15th. We expect to arrive in Banff sometime in the afternoon/early evening on August 16th.

I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on the best route from Theo Roosevelt NP to Banff and a good place to stay overnight. Are there a lot of lodging options or should we book in advance? Any route with better, more interesting scenery…

Hi TTF,

We (husband and wife, age 61 and 56) are planning to visit the Ontario region in mid September. We're looking at different options, such as:

  • Staying in Toronto
  • Hiring a car and travelling between Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal
  • Hiring a car and travelling around the Great Lakes (e.g. a round trip from Toronto to Sault Sainte Marie)
  • Heading up to the cottages area
  • Spending some time in Algonquin

We need help because we love the mix of city and 'great outdoors'!

Any thoughts or…

I spent 1 week in the province of Quebec with my husband and our 2 year old last week. We drove from Virginia up 87 (and hit awful traffic the moment we hit NY and stayed in the Adirondacks for a week). We had no traffic from the Adirondacks to NY on 87. We took I-81 all the way down from NY to VA and had no issue with traffic!

Quebec City: We stayed at the Downtown Marriott Quebec Hotel and it was great! It was very expensive so we used reward points but the service was excellent and it was a…

Hi folks,
I'm coming soon to north America, landing in Vancouver, and I'll travel for a few months. I'll move a lot in canada and after that in the US as well.
I was wondering, as a foreigner, should I buy car in Canada? Is it ok to enter with it to the US later? Is it possible to sell it there?
Or it's better to buy it in Seattle? And then again, is there any problem traveling with the car in Canada?

Thanks a lot!

HI,
We were going to hike Tumbling creek trail to the e tumbling creek campground at the end of July.

Parks Canada has posted that the trail is closed due to a avalanche taking out the bridge at km 6.6

We are considering going in from the west on the Wolverine Creek trail. I would like to hear from someone who has been in there recently. How rugged is the drive in off the Beaverfoot logging road and how difficult is the hike up to the rock wall trail intersection. My partner is concerned about…

    Do I need to book in advanced?

Thanks!!
