    • 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 Jan 17, 2017 at 5:17 AM

      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.

      glass bridge

      Canada 13 hours ago

      I remember seeing that there is a glass bridge in either Jasper or Banif, but I can't recall the details. I had not paid much attention as I did not intend on going that way any time soon, but now I will be going to both this summer and am wondering where it is. Thanks

    • 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eg, face from your profile and any personal information as who knows what will be done with the information once VT is no longer active.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.

    • Fishing near Mt Kidd campground

      by Riders2013 Online Now Jun 21, 2015 at 9:50 AM

      The family is heading out this summer camping. We have fished Lorette ponds but that is crazy. Too many people and too few fish. I heard there is a pond or lake that has Char. Can anyone confirm this? And what lures are you using? My 6 and 8 year olds would love to catch something on this trip. Thanks Ed

    • Lake for novice canoeing

      by justinleisle Online Now May 12, 2009 at 8:39 AM

      I'm taking my mom kayaking/canoeing for the long weekend around Calgary, she is novice so I want to do a nice lake which won't be too crowded and maybe a small river run. Any suggestions?

    • Kananaskis or Jasper with kids - which one and what to do?

      by AnnekeGlen Online Now Jun 11, 2008 at 11:28 AM

      Hi,
      I will beflying in from Toronto to spend about 5 days with our young family - 2 kids aged 4 and 5 -- road trip between Calgary and Edmonton. We want a meaningful trip, not super rushed, family friendly but also since we might not be back in the area for a while, hit as many 'breathtaking' must-see spots as we can..also would be fun to 'do' some fun things with the kids and nature

      Our tentative itinerary

      Day 1 Calgary - stay w friends in Calgary
      Day 2 Drumheller - drive back to Calgary
      Day 3 Kananaskis - canoe with kids or rent raft? stay in Banff for the night
      Day 4 Early morning Peyto Lake, Gondola ride, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake - Banff for the night
      Day 5 Icefields Parkway - stop at Snocoach Athabaska glacier - Jasper for the night
      Day 6 Drive to Edmonton - stay w friends
      Day 7 Flight out of Edmonton in the early afternoon

      Is this too rushed? Are we missing the big things, and focussing on others too much? What are the must sees in any of the spots we are planning to visit? I planned it this way so that we would spend time w friends unwinding at the start and end of the trip. However, now I'm wondering if I need more time in Kananaskis, Banff and Jasper and should cut out Drumheller?

      Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
