    • Weather April/May

      Quebec Jan 6, 2017 at 12:21 PM

      To those of you who have helped and advised with the NZ trip I'm grateful but we simply can't afford it - so we're heading back to Canada

      Our rough proposed plan is to fly into Boston drive up through Lake Placid and on to Montreal/Ottawa/Quebec City -not sure if it's worth visiting Halifax so might well come back a more direct route. Thinking of visiting April/May but what about snowfall? All suggestions much appreciated - not into outdoor activities but very much folk music and historic sites - we've done Niagra

      Also on my want to do list is to see the Canadian Mounted Police show - I'm visiting their website daily but from past experience is there liable to be a show in Ottawa at this time of year

    • 1st week in Feb

      Vancouver Island Yesterday

      We have the chance to visit from London during 1st week in Feb. Probably not the best time to visit but its all we have. Will there be enough for us to do/see? Will we be able to drive around (Whistler?) or will the weather make that impossible? Grateful for your thoughts.

    • One week time in British Columbia. Suggestions ?

      Canada Dec 23, 2016 at 10:14 PM

      Hello,
      We are looking to spend one weeks time in British Columbia area, which is next week. Considering weather and roads, we believe Victoria, Tofino or may be Vancouver should be ok. We are coming from Portland.
      We are not into shopping, snow sports or food, but more keen to see natural sceneries. Though Tofino and Victoria have been discussed a lot on forums, I am not able to find, when question comes, what should see in Victoria in 3 days and what should I see in Tofino in 3 days.
      Can somebody help us with this ?
      Thanks

    • Your personal face picture

      Canada Jan 7, 2017 at 9:30 PM

      It might be a good idea to delete your personal picture, eg, face from your profile and any personal information as who knows what will be done with the information once VT is no longer active. Think of doing this from a security aspect.

    • Ferry

      by RonWels Online Now Jun 12, 2007 at 8:16 AM

      I am thinking of travelling to Grand Manan this July(2007). We will travelling with our truck and tent trailer. Hopefully camping on the island. Our truck and trailer measure approx. 36 feet(12 meters) and 2 adults. Can someone please confirm the cost of taking the ferry (seems to be expensive) and also how is the camping on the island. We enjoy private campsites, clean showers and a nice beach(also prefer walking to the beach).
      Thank's

    • Basic Info about where to stay, what to do, how to get there

      by BackPackerEL Online Now Jun 15, 2006 at 7:51 PM

      We'd like to visit Grand Manan this summer for a few days. I'm looking for basic information about visiting the island, like ferries (any from Maine?), recommendations on where to stay (no camping or cottages), do we need a car?, recommended places to explore on foot, bike, kayak? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Fishing opportunity in Grand Manan?

      by wifty Online Now Jun 1, 2006 at 10:47 AM

      The four of us from Ontario are planning to have our first visit to Grand Manan in August 2006 and we are planning to stay for a week. While we have read many information about whale watch tour, we don't seem to find information about fishing tour. Are there companies that organize fishing trip and what is the opportunity for fishing along the shore? Do we need a fishing license from the Province of New Brunswick? Thanks
