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:
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'll be in vancouver for a short week between 6 and 11 june. during this time i'm looking to do a 3-4 day solo hike.
I'm an intermediate level hiker and I guess what i'm looking for is advice to pick a nice hike that doable alone.
I'm not planning to rent a car so a hike that i can get to with public transport would be a plus, but more important is the hike itself.
thanks in advance,
We are planning a 2 week road trip this summer with two kids from Ottawa to the Maritimes. We plan on visiting the typical places such as PEI, Cabot Trail, Halifax and Bay of Fundy. In planning our itinerary we wondered where would be a good base to visit some of NB. Places under consideration are Moncton, Shediac, or closer to Hopewell. Any recommendations on which is a better place to stay for a few nights and why? Any other suggestions are appreciated too. : ) Thx

We plan to visit Newfoundland this fall. We will spend 3/4 nights in St. John's and rent a car to tour the countryside for 6/7 days. We would appreciate itinerary suggestions as to a route to follow. The route needs to be a loop as we fly out of St John's. Our interests would be a view of a small town/village reflecting the culture of the area, a historic site and lovely views.

We are planing a family vacations with kids in Nova Scotia end of June. I have few questions and hope folks with first-hand experience here can help :))
Are there any good hikes with a good chance to see tides/ tidal rips near Wolfville in addition to the Cape Split hike? I do not think my daughters - especially the 2.5 years old one - will handle 14 kms/ 5-6 hrs of Cape Split hike. Are hikes around Hall's Harbour that LP Guidebook mentioned good to see tides?
