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…
Hi, I'm from the town of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu (south of Montreal) and I wand to do a road trip across all of Canada up to Vancouver. I know that we have a lot of beautiful natural park, and I want to visit some of them (like Banff), but I'm really more of a people person and I would really like to meet my fellow Canadians. So, what I'm asking is, what is the best way to meet people while travelling trough Canada? What are the most welcoming towns on the way to Vancouver? Thanks in advance…
My wife and I (30 somethings) are planning to do some travelling in BC in June of this year. Looking for suggestions on an itinerary for a 1 1/2 to 2 week trip. Is it worth starting in Calgary (not during the stampede). Thinking of doing Vancouver, Whistler (I think Banff is too far) and then possibly hoping a plane to Seattle.
Does anyone suggestions on travel itineraries for travelling in this area? Thanks.
I'll be in Montreal mid-May to September and need advice on the best way to find a furnished apartment.
I'm looking for a comfortable, quiet one-bedroom in a safe and walkable neighborhood (I won't have a car). I'm just there to enjoy the city for the summer, so I'm flexible on neighborhood. I've been checking out CL and Kijiji and wondering:
Can I show up in mid May, with an Airbnb booked for two weeks, and count on finding a good apartment to start renting in June? Or will everything…
We're flying to Montréal end of June for a 3-week trip with 2 kids (7 & 9 yrs).
Our problem is that there is so much we would like to see but on the other hand we don't want to spend hours in the car & rushing the kids. It's our first long-distance trip with the kids and first trip to this part of the world!
We had following rough idea in mind :
3 days Montréal
With train to Québec (2 days)
Train to Halifax (1 day)
Rent a car for 10 days & tour around Nova Scotia ( Cabot trail, whale…
Destination: Vancouver Island and Vancouver city
What follows is lengthy. It may serve as a sort of trip-report-plus-tips-list based upon our recent ramblings around the west coast of Canada’s Vancouver Island, specifically Pacific Rim National Park and the two coastal village bases that sandwich it, Tofino (‘peace’) and Ucluelet (aka ‘Ukee’). It has been re-read many times by the Department of Redundancy Dept. to ensure that there was no undue repetition, incorect spelling or…
I'll be traveling solo to Banff and then Jasper end of July into the beginning of August. I booked campsites at Lake Louise and Wabasso Lake just to have somewhere to stay without the hussle of trying to find a site like those at the US National Parks although I would prefer more secluded campgrounds. How packed are the campgrounds in the busy months? Would i have to get up at 6am to find a good spot or can i be a little more relaxed if i went that route? Are there fire restrictions at the…
