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…

We've got the opportunity to spend 4 weeks in Canada this August. We've got two kids, aged 7 and 3. We want to see as much of the country as possible, ending up in Toronto where we have friends. We've started looking at both the train across from Vancouver to Toronto, and hiring an RV in the East of the country. Looking likely we might use an internal flight at some point too in order to cover the distance. However I'm feeling rather overwhelmed by all the options at the moment!
Where would…

Does anyone know a way/the best way of travelling from England to Canada without flying at all or with the minimal amount of flying? Thanks very much.

Hi Guys,
I am Renata from Hungary, traveling to Canada this summer and wonder if anyone knows any kind of public transportation between Saskatoon and Thompson. There is supposed to be either train or bus, however when I check it on the internet I can't find anything exact where I could actually book a ticket or something. If possible I would skip a 1000 km drive on my own as my driving license is pretty fresh :D
Any idea would be much appreciated.
Thanks a lot!

Hi travellers,
I m going to Canada on the 27th of August (Calgary Airport). My plan is to go around the Rocky Mountains and explore that great area, then going to Vancouver probably around the 11th of September more or less but we could talk about it.
I m travelling by myself and I realize rental car companies in Canada are quite expensive especially if you are doing the drop-off somewhere else.
I will be arriving at Calgary airport on the 27th around 4pm .
I m on my late thirties, from Spain, easy…

This may be old hat to some, but we thought to pass along some info here about some really attractive lodging rates in downtown Vancouver. Talkin' about the YWCA, right across from BC Place. Firstly, they do accept men. Secondly, they appear to not care whether you are Christian or not. Thirdly, their rates are fantastic. If you are willing to stay in a somewhat college-dorm environment throughout, without room service, chocolate surprises on your pillows or access to…

Hello everyone! I'm sorry if I'm posting a question that has been asked before but I can't find anywhere on this forum, or anywhere online for that matter; reviews for Lonely Planet guided tours. I plan on going on the "Best of the West" adventure tour in March through Lonely Planet. If theres anyone that has been on Lonely planet adventure tours in the USA before, please tell me what your experience was like, how the people in your group were? Also how your tour guide was? And if the tour was…

Hey there,

We're visiting Vancouver around the middle of March for a few days. We were thinking of spending three days checking out the city (I'm considering moving there for work so want to suss it out) and I thought we could spend another three days visiting some of the surrounding natural beauty.

Originally I was considering Vancouver Island but mainly for the Orcas which I understand won't be around at this time, and the island itself sounds cold, rainy and windy in March. We were thinking…

  • Dog sledding
  • Snow mobiling / snow boarding / other snow activities
