    • See all on the Icefields Parkway going North in one day?

      Province of Alberta Aug 19, 2016 at 2:41 PM

      Two youngish senior couples driving from Lake Louise to Jasper on September 12 and planning to stay 2 nights in Jasper before doubling back on the Icefields Parkway and on to (Banff) Canmore. Can you help us plan our stops along the way going North and returning South. (We can also spend some Jasper time on the Parkway if needed.) Obviously want to see the usual top spots, but no need to add hiking. In your recommendations, please tell us if we need to make advanced reservations.

      Thanks so much in advance.

    • Trans-Labrador Hwy 2016

      Province of Newfoundland and Labrador Aug 11, 2016 at 5:07 AM

      For anyone heading to the Trans-Labrador Hwy this summer 2016 I have a weird and desperate request....

      My bf and I just completed the drive (awesome experience) and we found these fantastic "I survived the Trans Lab Hwy" stickers on the ferry at Blanc Sablon. However as we were heading east-west and this was the start of our trip, we didn't want to tempt fate and, assuming we would be able to buy one at the other end, we didn't get one.

      Big mistake. I don't think you can purchase them anywhere else.

      I know it sounds dumb but I'm so disappointed I can't get a sticker for our camper as it was such a huge part of our trip.....

      If anyone is driving this route and can pick me up a sticker on the ferry I will be forever indebted! Of course we can figure out a way to send payment; check, cash, etransfer whatever.... I can't tell you how much it would mean to me.

      Many thanks in advance!

      Raptors game alone?

      Toronto Aug 21, 2016 at 2:42 PM

      ok, strange question I suppose but here goes.... would a woman alone at a Raptors game look out of place/attract attention? I will have a spare evening when the Raptors are at home and my hotel is 5 mins walk from the ACC so seems mad to watch it on tv when I could be in there but don't want to feel uncomfortable if it isn't the norm. Hopefully I'm overthinking this and no-one would bat an eyelid.

      Thanks.

      Apartment rental for a month in Toronto

      Toronto Aug 19, 2016 at 2:27 AM

      Hi, I'm new to this forum. Thanks for accepting me. I need some help.

      I live in Toronto. I moved here for studies last year. I have my two cousins coming to Toronto. I want to arrange them a good stay. They will be here for 5 weeks and they asked me to check for a furnished apartment for rent. Apparently, I don't know much about the stays in Toronto. I have seen furnished apartment rentals of Mac SuitesFurnished ResidencesDowntown and North York. I'm staying near York University so, we'd prefer a place near there. I know Downtown area is expensive, so, that's not a viable option. Has anyone stayed at their rentals? I'd appreciate other suggestions too. 

      Thanks.

    • One week in Rockies for youngish Seniors

      Province of Alberta Aug 17, 2016 at 9:09 AM

      Folks,

      Two youngish senior couples (non-hikers) driving the Rockies in mid Sept (9-17). After driving to Salmon Arm from Vancouver, based on some online input several months ago, we head to Lake Louise, go to Jasper and then double back to Banff (Canmore) and fly home from Calgary. Itinerary and places for us to stop is as follows:
      Lake Louise (2 nights)
      Trails around Lake
      Chateau Lake Louise Hotel
      Lake Louise Gondola
      Moraine Lake
      Emerald Lake and Takkakaw Falls

      Icefields Parkway to Jasper
      Peyto Lake
      Bow Lake
      Mistaya Canyon
      Wilcox Pass Hike-
      Athabasca Falls
      Snowcoach to Glacier –
      Sunwapta Falls

      Jasper (3nights)
      Tramway
      Malign Lake
      Malign Canyon
      Medicine Lake
      Bow Valley (Highway 1A to Banff)
      Johnson Canyon
      Castle Mtn.

      Banff
      Banff Gondola
      Bow Falls
      Tunnel Mtn.
      Minnewanka boat tour

      Canmore for lodging (2 nights)

      Comments on itinerary appreciated, but specific question about the drive from Lake Louise to Jasper and back. Must we (and should we) take the Icefields to and from Jasper? Anything missing? Also, is the Annual Park pass advisable? Does not seem so for our group of 4.
      Thanks!!

      Yellowknife in December from tropical country. Advice please.

      Yellowknife May 22, 2016 at 6:22 PM

      Hi everyone! my partner and I will be in Yellowknife for 5 days in December hoping to see the northern lights. I am aware that it is very cold in those months and we are planing to rent the winter outfit prior arriving. The coldest place we've been to is -4C so I am a bit nervous in going to -30 to -40C :) We are living in Australia at the moment and I can't find much winter clothing that will suffice that weather. Any advice will be appreciated. The last thing I want is to spend most of the time inside the hotel because of too much cold. thanks in advance :)

      Christmas/New Years in Yellowknife

      Yellowknife Aug 14, 2014 at 10:24 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 Yellowknife, or should I go somewhere else in Canada, i.e. Whitehorse? Thanks!

      Trip booked! How to best survive the extreme cold in Yellowknife?

      Yellowknife Dec 17, 2013 at 7:06 PM

      Hi all, I'm heading to Yellowknife in early March for the northern lights and will be spending hours outdoors as I plan to be photographing heavily and doing time lapse photography as well. I know temperatures will drop to about -30C (-22F) at night and the last time I was in that sort of cold, it was outright painful.

      Would like to be better prepared for this big trip. Does anyone have tips on what to pack? The VT Yellowknife's What To Pack Section has only one tip ("pack a fishing rod") so I'm hoping to get more insights from anyone who's been there/lives there.

      I know parks are a must - and I'm planning to rent one when I get there since I live in the tropics so there's no point buying one. Does anyone know what the rental price range is like? And any other packing tips will be GREATLY appreciated. Right now my plan is very under-developed. I just know that boots, parkas, and heat packs for the hands/feet are a must. Anything else?

    • I'm planning to run the Yellowknife Marathon in August 2011 and...

      Yellowknife Jun 9, 2011 at 9:46 AM

      I need some advice. I've always wanted to take a trip up there, and I love running marathons (I'm making a vacation out of this, running Yellowknife's marathon one week and Edmonton's race a week or so later). Now, I've conquered Vancouver, Toronto, Chicago, Minneapolis; expensive cities, all on a budget! I've never travelled to a remote location that is expensive to get to, and might not have the selection of budget hostels (not dumps!). I don't really see much in Yellowknife; if you're familiar with the city, are there backpacker hostels or places like the 'Y' where someone like myself could stay at for a couple days? Just from looking at the map I'd like to be near YK Centre so I don't need to depend on a car while I'm there.

      Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
