      2 night trip with 3 year old and 4 month old

      Algonquin Provincial Park Aug 11, 2015 at 1:04 PM

      Looking for suggestion for a good route/lake to go back country with kids. My husband and I are fairly experienced with canoe and portages but this is our first time with kids. Ideally somewhere with good swimming and sandy/beachy sites that you can walk out and swim. Would like to keep the trip out to a site to 4 hours max....little nervous about taking 4 month old out to middle of nowhere.... They should be fine in canoe for an hour or so....hopefully! Any advice/suggestions welcome! We are going in 2 weeks-August 28-30


    • Motoski, Sled dog, trekking in snow shoes - Quebec province - Christmas.. where is snow guaranteed?

      Province of Quebec Aug 21, 2015 at 11:49 PM

      We are planning to spend our Christmas break in Canada (approx 20- 30 December). We will be flying in and out of Montreal. The plan is to spend in total 2-3 days in Montreal and/or Quebec at the beginning / end of the stay and the rest of the stay in a chalet in the snow.
      We would like to do outings with sled dogs, motoski, trekking with snow shoes, fishing on iced-over lakes etc etc. We are from Europe so this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us. So we need snow!!

      Where would be the places to go for these activities? where are "guaranteed" to get snow in December?
      We have been liaising with travel agencies and they have provided some suggestions... areas we have been looking at are Mont Tremblant, Sainte Agathe des Monts, Saint Donat de Montcalm, with also one offer near Fjord du Saguenay.... But is that far enough North?
      Thanks for your help!

    • Driving from Toronto to Montreal, ideas on where to stop and seeing the thousand islands?

      Province of Ontario Aug 19, 2015 at 2:21 PM

      Hi all!

      I wrote out a long post but when I submitted it said I had to verify my email and I think I lost the text.

      Either way, hello! I've been reading VT for a few weeks now and just signed up.

      I had a quick question regarding driving from Toronto to Montreal. I am wondering if anyone has experience on taking the scenic route to view the thousand islands. Do I just travel on the 401 highway all the way to Montreal, or do I have to get off somewhere?

      Also, it's a 6-7 hr drive. I'm just wondering if anyone recommends stopping somewhere along the way. Kingston looks like a good idea for a walk and a meal to break down the drive, however it seems like it might be a hassle getting into the city as I'm not too confident in my driving in Canada. (I'm from the UK).

      I would appreciate any help on this! Thanks all.

    • Questions for British tourists in Canada!

      Canada Aug 8, 2015 at 2:13 AM


      I would really appreciate some help on this topic!

      Myself, my Mother and Sister are traveling to Canada for 2 weeks in the coming month. However my Sister will be staying on for a year at a university that she already has a student permit, acceptance etc for.

      Visas - I was just wondering do we need any type of visas? I saw an eTA on the Canadian embassy website however that seems to come into effect in 2016. Or do we only need a passport?

      Proof of funds - My Sister has all her documents in order, but do I need them too, what about my Mother? I was told that people get interviewed, is this something we should expect? What kind of information should I have at hand?

      Car Rental - I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for car rental? I saw some comparison and aggregation sites and it's working out to around £30 or so a day. What do you do about insurance? Purchase the car rental's insurance, or do you get your own? A bit confused about this.

      How do you find driving there? I'm guessing I will definitely need a sat-nav (gps), do you pay extra for this?

      Would greatly appreciate any response!

      Accommodation/Public Transport

      I'm planning to go to Edmonton from May through September this year (best time of the year, eh?). Appreciate any advice/information on:-

      1) The area around/near the Walter Mackenzie Health Sciences Centre of the University of Alberta - safe/dead/alive? ;-)

      2) Availability of 4-5 months rental accommodation as close as possible to it - what might be the availability/going rate for a room (with a view?) in shared accommodation? How expensive is a one-bedroom apartment in that area?

      3) Availability/efficiency of public transport in that area/Edmonton. I'd hate to have to get a car and drive on the right side of the road! :(

      A week in Edmonton

      by clmbsb Online Now Oct 30, 2010 at 10:14 AM

      My partner and I am hoping to be be given resident visas for Canada and have decided on Edmonton as our first choice for where to live.

      We have booked a one week trip next May and would like some help in deciding how to best spend our time so that we see as much as the city and surrounding area as possible.

      We both love nature/walking and looking at Edmonton we see lots of green :) I have read that Elk Island National Park is within easy reach to the east of the city and was wondering if people have ever used tour companies to visit as we do not plan to hire a car whilst we are in town.

      I have read about the West Edmonton Mall and i think we shall take a trip here, mainly for the themepark as we enjoy rides etc.

      As i have said i see lots of green around the river in the city. Can people suggest some good walks?

      We shall also be having a look at different areas to live/cost/transport links etc so that if we are successful with our application we can move swiftly. Are there any areas in Edmonton that are to be avoided as I have looked at a few real estate websites and prices can vary across the city.

      I am a mad sport fan, what sports are played in May?

      Finally as we will be there is May, what can we expect weather wise?

      Sorry for all the questions and i thank you for taking time to read and posing any replies.

      Thank you

      Hey all, it looks like I'll be heading up to Edmonton for a job interview, and may have time to kill. Now my buddies in Winnipeg tell me Whyte Ave is the place to go so I'll probably end up there. Here's the kicker, I might be moving there. Any advice on where would be a good place to live? I'm 35 Y/O (though for some reason people think I'm younger....must be the beer), I'm much more into the bar scene rather than clubbing, love my food, need to keep fit (living in Texas can make you fat. Trust me on this), and would rather run a few miles than chill in front of the tube. Any advice would be appreciated.

      Hi Everyone,

      I have booked 3 days in Edmonton and this will be my first stop on my Canadian Trip in August.

      The main reason for my trip is to visit the West Edmonton mall and as i understand the Bed and Breakfast i have booked into on 102nd street is only a 12 minute taxi ride away.

      Just wondering, How big are the theme parks? Am i being unrealistic if i think i can get through the adventure park in a couple of hours? Or are they like the Disney Parks?

      I was thinking i may have to skip the water park due to time restraints, What about the rest of the mall? is it worth a look through or do locals think it's a little overrated? I'm not really a big shopper but being there i think i will buy a few things.

      I notice the guide books keep saying there's not much to see in downtown, Is that true? Can anyone give me ideas on what else besides the mall, 124th St shopping strip is a must see?

      ANy info would be great!
