      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.

      I am driving from Toronto to Montreal and will be doing several daytips from Montreal to QC, Ottawa and one place we haven't decided on yet.

    • Questions for British tourists in Canada!

      Canada Aug 8, 2015 at 2:13 AM

      Hi,

      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!

      Thanks.

      skilouise.com/lessons/adultP...

      Infact, it's cheaper for me to have a full days lesson ($79) than it would be to get a lift pass & hire the equiptment!

Is there any place I can find people travelling to Lake Louise that I could sell my lift ticket to? Otherwise I'm stuck with this great lift ticket that I can't use, since I'm in Ontario.
