    • Which island to visit - Mingan

      Havre-Saint-Pierre Jul 18, 2016 at 4:10 PM

      We'll be spending a day in mid-October in Havre Saint Pierre via cruise ship. The cruise ship offers a number of excursions offered to see some of the nearby islands. I would most like to see and photograph the monoliths, I think, but other things interest me as well. The choices I have will be a trip to Ile Niapiskau to hike a trail with oddly-shaped monoliths plus flora and fauna, a trip to Petite Ile Au Marteau (with lighthouse and flora and fauna), a trip to Ile Quarry (by zodiac, I believe), and passing Ile du Fantome before landing and exploring the Quarry monoliths, and a land trip to the Cetacean Research Center (& Innu Culture) plus photo stop at Point-Paradis. They all sound good. The difference in cost and time isn't terribly different from one to another, and physically I'm able to do any of them, so I can't decide which one to take. What I love best is photography - so I'm leaning towards seeing monoliths. However, I'm also a big lighthouse lover (have seen over 400 of them) so the chance to see a lighthouse is tempting me as well. I'm not crazy about museums, although the Cetacean Research Center sounds pretty interesting.

      If anyone has opinions I'd love to hear them!

    • Wilcox Pass hike - Canadian Rockies

      Province of Alberta Jun 28, 2016 at 8:15 PM

      I would like to walk only a part of the trail for no more than an hour each way, preferably less. I understand that the beginning of the trail is uphill through a forested area which eventually opens up into a plateau with superb views of the glacier. Timewise, how far up is it to the views of the glacier? Will I be able to see the sheep as well on this short hike? Thanks.

    • freedom travel in the rockies

      Canada Jul 16, 2016 at 11:07 PM

      hi there
      Just asking for input about how my research is going for a trip in the Rockies

      i have seen that greyhound buses can take me from place to place(thanks virtual tourist Liecs),,,ie calgary, banff and (via kamloops) jasper. I am still trying to confirm if Bewleys can take me Banff to jasper by a quicker route. I have seen that public transport (ie Roam)will take me to banff gondala and a shuttle can take me to jasper sky tram. i have researched that i can get a tour from banff and jasper to go to the columbia ice field. i have seen that the Icefield is closer to jasper (from Jasper 105km.) than banff(Distance from Banff 195km)
      I would like to probably schedule in another tour at jasper, maybe lake moraine(everyone raves about it!) Looking at leaving Jasper by VIA train.
      My husband and i dont mind walking, but are not really hikers.
      Am i missing anything in my research? My main aim is to soak up the sights of the beautiful mountains and be awed by their majesty...the photos are just surreal...If anyone is familiar with the Remakables in Queenstown. the rocky mountains look every bit as good.
      I have read that often Lake Louise is iced over til mid June and we are keen to see Lake Louise beautiful colour in real life so it looks like we will be looking to come late June-August 2017.

      I have read that it will be free to visit the national parks in canada in 2017. That sounds like good news to me!
      any thoughts appreciated thanks

      Any groups in Canada that sponsor Everest trips?

      Vancouver Jul 19, 2016 at 3:17 AM

      I live in Vancouver. Travelling has been my passion ever since I can remember, but due to the fact that I’ve not been able to afford the expensive air tickets and other costs, my trips have been limited to the North American Continent. I’ve always nurtured a passion towards climbing some of the greatest Mountains in the world, especially Kilimanjaro and Mount Everest.
      But then again, as I was checking the costs for these trips I realized there’s no way in hell that I could afford any of these trips.
      I was going through some articles and blogs the other day when I came across a blog on the online portal of Freshslice Pizza ( ).
      Here, the CEO of the company sponsored the dreams of a man to conquer Everest itself.
      Is there any such similar person or group of people willing to sponsor a like minded person to achieve his dream of conquering the mighty mountains of the world?

      Desperately hoping for a positive reply.
      Thanks a million! :)

      Bike Touring on PEI Mid June 2013

      Prince Edward Island Feb 11, 2013 at 6:59 PM

      I am planning on cycle touring trip (mix of camping and hotels) for mid June. I have been hearing not all attractions/restaurants/etc are open then. Is that correct ? Also, any suggestions whether we head to West side or east? I know we can't do all. We plan on riding 5 or 6 days, 40-50 miles/day (to allow sightseeing). I have info on the Confederation Trail and we might use that for some riding but like the coastal areas.

      We could go later in summer, my reasoning for June was to avoid some of the crowds and issues with trying to find accommodations.

      We would be arriving via car and leaving car near Gateway village.
      Any challenges with wind ? or possibly best bet for riding?

      any feedback/suggestions would be appreciated! thanks

      I hear that Woodleigh Park has gone into bankruptcy, is this true? What is going to happen with it? I think that this park is well worth saving. It needs to be re-furbished qand advertised more. After I saw it about 15 yrs. ago, I told everyone who was heading to Prince Edward Island it was a MUST see...and manyI know travelled there just to see that. You have a gem there that no other place in Canada has! I cannot see why you do not pounce on it...tourists love it and more would if they knew about it. I went through all of the PEI brochures at two different years, and never did I see it mentioned ONCE! You have more treasures than Anne of Green Gables...and that wears thin after awhile.
