    • Wildlife/Stampedes & Weather!!

      Canada Sep 21, 2015 at 1:34 AM

      OK everyone has heard of the Calgary stampede, much like the Braemer Highland Games!! Are there any provincial stampedes that follow a similar format and are worth seeing

      Subjectively I know that this is difficult but when normally do the wildlife start re-emerging - we were driving to Jasper a couple of years back around mid June and there were signs are "they're awake " take precautions etc - is this the norm??

      And finally --- we would like to visit Montreal/Ottawa coming up via Boston in April/May = what is the norm for weather?

      The reason that I am asking these questions is that my Husband's UK licence expires on 2 July next year so generating codes for car hire around the Calgary stamped dates could be a problem

      A lot to ask I know but I would appreciate some info many thanks in advance

      Budget Minded Travel Options between Quebec City and Montreal

      Quebec Sep 23, 2015 at 12:34 PM

      Hello everyone, I am new to this forum :-) We are planning a trip to Quebec City and thought we would travel to Montreal for the last 2 days of our trip. I was reading on this site about allo stop and kanga ride. I see the websites are still up but google has them as permanently closed. Are they and if so, is there a budget minded travel option between the two cities? Thanks everyone in advance. Mic

    • Travel Through Canadian Rockies

      Canada Sep 28, 2015 at 11:10 PM

      My husband and I will be travelling to Vancouver arriving on 8 May 2016 - we are Australians. We plan to spend a few days in Vancouver and then hire a car to travel through the Canadian Rockies. We are interested in visiting new places and checking out the cities as well as enjoying wonderful scenery. We have never been here before so would welcome advice on the following subjects.

      1. How long should we allow in Vancouver.
      2. Driving conditions at that time of year - not used to real winter weather driving and we drive on the other side of the road.
      3. What route should we take to see the best scenery and how long should we allow for travelling and stopping at different locations - overnight stays or more than one night at each stop.
      4. How easy is it to get accommodation at that time of year - should we book ahead.

      We would welcome any suggestions on accommodation (we usually look for something that is well located but aren't too fussy, as long as it has a clean and has it's own bathroom), as well as suggestions of what places to stop at and what to see. All comments and suggestions welcome :-)

    • Vancouver to Los Angeles

      Vancouver Sep 29, 2015 at 5:17 AM

      Hi there,

      Looking at going on a tour that finishes in Vancouver, and then will be meeting friends in Los Angeles, just wondering is there any suggestions on a good way to get to Los Angeles from Vancouver.

      Besides flying, or taking a straight bus trip, is there any companies that offer trips between these two cities that offer a bit of sight seeing in the process. Or what is something I go could do as an adventure and able to sight see?

      I'm not confident to go off totally on my own, but would like to possibly have a journey to be able to see and along the coast from Vancouver and Los Angeles.

      Cheers muchly,

      Christmas/New Years in Whitehorse

      Whitehorse Aug 14, 2014 at 10:25 PM

      I am planning a winter adventure in NWT or YT. I am a former Alaska resident and would like to spend about a week skiing (classic and skate), ice fishing, skijoring, kite skiing, camping, viewing the northern lights, bars & restaurants, etc. Most of my friends here in the States are not even remotely interested in joining me on my winter adventure so I would love to join groups or find a guide to do these things. My time off is around Christmas and/or New Years. My question: where should I go in Whitehorse, or should I go somewhere else in Canada, i.e. Yellowknife? Thanks!

    • Winter Holiday to Whitehorse

      Yukon Territory Oct 17, 2012 at 2:48 AM


      I am planning a trip to Whitehorse with my boyfriend in early January. We hope to see the Northern Lights and go dog sledding. We are from Australia and are finding it very hard to imagine the cold weather!

      We are looking for some advice regarding areas to stay in Whitehorse, and how to get around the city. I contacted a B&B slightly out of the city, and they suggested we hire a car. Is driving possible during January around Whitehorse? Alternatively we would rather get around by local transport, is there any public transport available?

      Thanks for your help!

      Internet/Cellphone Connection

      Yukon Territory May 29, 2012 at 1:16 PM

      Just curious about the main connection. I have Rogers as my provider for the cellphone. Who covers Whitehorse area and/or Haines Junction? Is it worth taking a Rocket stick up there?
      What about connection when taking the Alaska Ferry up - while going through the Inside Passage is there connection? Or is it a roaming area or blanked out area? Oh dear, sounds like I want to be in contact everywhere. More curiosity than anything else since I'm not a text-er and rarely ever turn on my cellphone anywhere else!

      September in Whitehorse

      Whitehorse Aug 2, 2011 at 8:58 AM

      An Aussie friend and I are considering driving, mid-September 2012, from Skagway to Whitehorse (yes, we are aware that he has to rent the car as Canadian law won't allow a car rented in the US by a Canadian into Canada! Makes no sense that an Aussie can rent the car!) Is this a safe drive at that time of year? (ie, it IS too early for snow, right???) I'm assuming we have to be wary of moose and other wildlife on the roads? Are the Northern Lights visible in September? What about returning via Haines Junction, and the Haines Highway? I know we'd have to get the ferry from Haines to Skagway, but is that a viable idea?
      Any hotels that we should avoid? Since we have a car, it does mean we don't have to stick to downtown hotels or ones by the airport - any highly recommended places for just one night? Any restaurants that really are must go to's? We're not looking for high-end - just good food, and hopefully locally sourced.
      Thank you for your assistance. VTers are the best!

      Hows fishing?

      Haines Junction May 11, 2011 at 2:14 PM

      We drive up and down the AlCan every summer and always really like Kluane Lake. We never see boats on the lake and wonder if and what kind of fish are found there, if there are any guiding services or outfitters nearby, and what kind of luck can I expect fishing in early June or early August.

      Driving from Skagway to Fairbanks (or Anchorage)

      Yukon Territory Mar 26, 2007 at 5:58 AM

      I was thinking of using the bus lines from Whitehorse to Fairbanks, via Dawson City (not sure there are still connections from Skagway, as Alaska Direct doesn't seem to have a website anymore), but the agency I enquired with seems to favor the car rental option (maybe for business reasons, of course)... My problem is, I'm not sure it would be reasonable for somebody like me, who never drives (I've got my licence, but, living in Paris, I don't own a car and only use public transportation...), to head into the Yukon on my own and onto gravel roads right after mid-May... Never even drove an automatic car!
      So, does anybody around here have any experience of such a drive, and do you think the idea is completely insane, given the circumstances??

      Road Conditions in July

      my family and I will drive through BC and YT next year and ultimately Alaska. I wonder if anyone can give me tips about road conditions in general during the month of July. For example, according to MapQuest, the driving time from Stewart, BC to Watson Lake, YT on Route 37 takes 15 hours yet it's only 400 miles. That would be a bit too much to drive in one day. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (I know, get a map! but BC/YT maps are hard to come by in Munich :-)
