      Most Recommended Hiking Trails?

      Waterton Lakes National Park May 27, 2015 at 6:49 AM

      Hi there, I was wondering what are the most recommended hiking trails in Waterton Lakes NP, (let's say for July through September)--particularly, I was thinking in terms of the most scenic views and/or the safest (in terms of having a good flow of other hikers at this time of year & not isolated) trails.

      Thanks, Joe

    • Best Cell / Mobile Phone to use in Banff / Sunshine / Lake Louise area of Canada

      Banff May 15, 2015 at 2:45 AM

      I will be in the Banff area for a number of months and would like some advice on what is the most cost effective and useful cell / mobile service provider to use. My uk issued smartphone is quad band so should work for calls but the 3G frequency will be wrong for internet service. Internet service in Canada seems relatively expensive compared to UK so I am wondering if it would be better to use wifi hotspots where possible. Any advice would be appreciated.

      My 9 year old granddaughter will be traveling with me for a Grandma/Granddaughter trip in a few weeks, staying in the Inner Harbor area. I've been to the area several times with my husband and am familiar with the regular spots; fisherman's wharf, Beacon Hill Park, Royal BC Museum,Empress Tea Room, Parliament Bldg.,etc. Would like some suggestions for some unusual things to do that would be of interest to a 9 year old who loves art, music, history.

    • Where do I leave my clothes when going to the wreck beach

      Vancouver May 24, 2015 at 1:34 AM

      hi, this is a question that came to my head and I was surprised that no website answers the question of where to put the clothes when on the wreck beach. I haven't been to the Wreck beach before. I plan to visit there soon next month and stroll the beach in the nude. If I drive, is it fine to leave them in the car and be naked during the walk to the beach? What do folks who take the public transport do? Are there lockers to rent? Should I be worried that they can get stolen if I just leave them on the beach and stroll from end to end?

      May be I am concerned over nothing and there may a practical solution to it but I rather be prepared than sorry.

      Thank you,

      What is the current process for Customs and Immigration at Toronto Pearson from the US?

      Toronto May 8, 2015 at 2:07 PM

      Guys, who has recently been through Terminal 1 at Pearson from outside Canada? The Official Spousal Unit is flying from DFW to Pearson this weekend, and we are trying to determine the process for Customs and Immigration.

      We have often been through C & I in T3 on American Airlines, but not on Air Canada, a different terminal.

      In the US, we now have Automated Passport Control kiosks ( ) which supposedly speed things up nicely. But so far, what little that I can find suggests that the kiosks in Toronto for inbound people is only for Canadian residents.The airport website, Canadian Immigration website and Air Canada website have all been remarkably unhelpful...

      Anyone with recent experience?

      Christmas/New Years in Whitehorse

      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!

Is driving possible during January around Whitehorse? Alternatively we would rather get around by local transport, is there any public transport available?

      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?

      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!

      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 :-)
