      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

      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.

      As will be seen from previous question we plan to visit end of June

      Proposed itinerary - really need some helpful practical suggestions as to what to see/ferry routes

      Depart Horseshoe Bay crossing to Nanaimo Bay - do we need to book this crossing as we will have a car??

      Drive to Victoria - suggestions as to what to see greatly appreciated

      Day 2 Circular tour from Victoria - Lake Cowichan - Port Renfrew - Sooke - Victoria - OK long day - Google calculates 4hr 29 264 KM - not so sure going on the coast via Sooke would have preferred to have cut back in through national park - or what looks like national park on map but showing no roads - may be the costal route is picturesque

      Is it worth visiting Campbell River

      Costing of inside passage from Port Hardy-Port Rupert seems horribly expensive and we simply can't afford it . Also we do not do small boats only major drive on ferries - so trips to islands would not be possible

      Depart via Toll Bridge from Victoria to Port Angeles - any idea of fees as website seems ambiguous

      Many thanks

We will likely be camping both days, and would just like to visit beautiful places and spend time outdoors. I would love visiting or camping near a beach there one or two nights. Seeing wildlife would be a bonus! I don't need to drive all around the island, I just want to spend 2 scenic days on the island. Any suggestions?

    • Itinerary Suggestion for Visiting Vancouver and Tofino for a 7 day trip

      by austin_tx Online Now Apr 24, 2014 at 8:01 PM

      I will be flying to Vancouver the end of June this year and am trying to make plans for a tentative itinerary. I've done some research and I would really like to explore vancouver Island (tofino specifically) as well as vancouver. Is it reasonable to travel to tofino for a 7 day trip spanning between both island time as well as time in the city? I just would hate to spend that much time traveling to Tofino and be disappointed. I was also curious how Hornby Island is and if it would be worth stopping at one night on the way to Tofino?

      Tentative Itinerary with comments/suggestions welcomed:
      Day 1 - Fly into Vancouver YVR and take ferry to Nanaimo. Rent Car and drive to hornby Island
      Day 2 - Explore Hornby Island in the morning and then drive to Tofino in the afternoon
      Day 3 - Explore Tofino, possibly hot springs?
      Day 4 - Explore Tofino and Long Beach in Pacific Rim Park
      Day 5 - Drive to Nanaimo and take ferry back to Vancouver
      Day 6 - Explore Vancouver
      Day 7 - Explore Vancouver
      Day 8 - Fly Home

      Thanks!

      We're a family of 5, kids ages 17,16, and 12. We are renting a travel trailer from Errington, from there we will camp in Tofino (spend maybe 3 days, see Ucluelet). Then camp in Qualicum falls for a couple of nights. Then to Nanaimo for 4 days with day trips to Victoria and Sooke Potholes. Does that sound like a reasonable itinerary and enough time at each place? Am I missing any must see places? We are experienced campers so pulling a trailer is fine.

      My husband and I are planning an eight day (not including travel days) trip to Vancouver Island in late June. On the first night our plane arrives from Florida around nine at night. After customs we are intending to drive straight away to Parksville for our stay for the next three days. I realize that the sun will be setting latter in the evening and this is unfamiliar territory to us. Is this too much for a first day? Is the road in this direction too dark or narrow for this late night trip? I really don't want to stay in Victoria at the beginning of our trip but rather at the end. We will be staying three days in the Parksville area then days in Ucluelet and the final three days in Victoria. Advice?

      My husband and I will be going to Vancouver Island and the general area for the time before- during and after Canada Day. We are Americans but we wanted to see how our northern friends celebrate their national holiday. We are at the very beginning of planning our trip. I know that I want to see Vancouver Island but am unsure if I have enough time to visit the city of Vancouver as well. Minus the travel day there and back we will be there eight days. We love fireworks and general shows and celebrations but not so much bar or club hopping. Are we better off to go the The City for the special day or is there a city on Vancouver Island that has a nice celebration? By the way we still have not hammered out an itinerary so we are fully open. With only eight days should we just stay on Vancouver Island? We want to be relaxed and still see what this wonderful area can offer. .

      Hi
      Fingers crossed, it looks like we may be in Vancouver visiting family at the end of the second week in October, and we're thinking about adding on a couple of days to visit Vancouver Island.
      Is this a good or bad time of year to visit? Is it too early/late for the Fall colours?
      Our time is sadly limited, but would we be able to get at least a taste of the Island in 2-3 days, or would we be better focusing our attentions on Vancouver itself (we're particularly interested in landscapes and wildlife)?
      Any guidance would be useful: if you assume that we're pretty clueless, then you won't insult us!

      My mum and me are traveling up to Canada from Oz in September and looking at spending 4 nights on the island before taking a cruise. We've come up with an itinerary, but not sure how feasible it is. ANy help appreciated

      Day 1: Spend day exploring Victoria, pick up rental car & drive to Campbell River
      DAy 2: Grizzly bear tour, stay night in Campbell River
      Day 3: Drive to Ucluelet, stopping at some touristy places on the way (don't know where yet)- sunset cruise in Ucluelet and spend night there
      Day 4: Drive to Nanaimo, drop off car and head to Vancouver, possibly check out Tofino on the way

      Not sure if we're going to be rushing around like crazy if we try to fit all that in or if we'll be missing any must-see stuff. We wouldn't mind doing a little hiking, but not concerned if we can't fit it in.

      Hello all :)

      I am getting married in the summer, and for our honeymoon my wife-to-be and I are wanting to go to Canada. We are going for 3 weeks, and pretty much have an itinerary sorted (at-least in our heads)

      The only thing we cant seem to find is he perfect accommodation/location on Vancouver island. Obviously as its honeymoon we want somewhere as nice as possible, as near some beaches and other sites/things to do but (and this is the bit we are struggling with) we cant seem to find anywhere which is in easy walking distance to restaurants and bars. We really dont want to rent a car on the island as we are doing this on another leg of the journey. So if anybody has any good ideas or recommendations that would be fantastic

      We had planned to go by ferry from Vancouver to Victoria, stay there the day (and night?), then drive northwards to Port Alberni (stay there the night on a campground? Advice?), and continue to Ucluelet. As I understood, Ucluelet is a good place to access the Pacific Rim NP - is that correct?.
      The 4th day, we were thinking of driving back eastwards to Nanaimo, take a mid-day ferry back to Horseshoe bay and start driving on the 99 towards East/ Rocky mountains.

      Have you any suggestions concerning campground, activities, walks, trails? I don't really have a good concept about the driving distances and road features on the island...
      our focus would be on scenery and wildlife (we have to try to see some whales, that's for sure)

      Cheers for your help,
      Julia

    • travelling without a car

      we are a family of 4, with a four year old and a 1 year old baby... we would love to go to Vancouver Island or one of the gulf islands during our stay in Canada in April... but we don't drive! Can anyone suggest a lovely quiet place to go to that is accessible by public transport and taxi if necessary. We really don't want to restrict ourselves to a city, but equally don't want a journey from hell to get somewhere! Any suggestions? Thanks

    • Itinerary Advice for a 2-week Vancouver Island holiday

      by debras Online Now Jan 27, 2011 at 7:07 PM

      My husband and I are planning a trip to Vancouver Island duringthe last 2 weeks of May. We'll be flying into Victoria, renting a car, and taking it from there. Some must-stops for us are Tofino, Ucluelet and Campbell River (with a trip to Mt. Washington).

      We're also considering going further north to Port McNeil, but not sure how long to stay in each place and the best route.

      Do we start by staying on the east coast and driving north, leaving the west coast to the end? Do we veer over to Ucluelet and Tofino first?

      Are there other destinations that we shouldn't miss?

      All and any advice would be fabulously welcome!

      by Muffyrabbit Online Now Aug 14, 2010 at 1:44 PM

      Hi, We have planned to stay in Sointula on Malcolm island for a few days in August. I cant find any reviews about the place we have chosen and am beginning to get cold feet, particularly as we are taking a guest with us. Has anyone stayed at Rainbeaus End? or can anyone recommend a good place to stay on the island?
      Many thanks

      Private Cabin? Waterfront?

      by Meegs Online Now Jun 24, 2010 at 12:38 AM

      HI Guys, I'd love to find a secluded cabin anywhere south of Campbell River and possibly even in Tofino for this coming weekend. My boyfriend and I are going ot jump on the Harley and have an impromtu weekend away...any suggestion? Private cabins are key, oceanfront even better. Budget isn't an issue.
      Thanks for your help!
