    • 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 Jan 20, 2017 at 7:20 AM

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eg, face from your profile and any personal information as who knows what will be done with the information once VT is no longer active.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

      Most Recommended Hiking Trails?

      by lakeside44 Online Now 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

    • Hotel comparison

      by CaptainTeener Online Now May 26, 2014 at 12:24 PM

      We are planning on either the Alpine Village (a cottage with a King bed) or Bear Mt. Inn (a room with two queen beds) for two nights in early June. We are two seniors, and we like a clean, quiet room with a good bed. We don't need fancy, but we like to watch TV at night and relax in a room that does not feel creepy. Any thoughts from you would be appreciated!

      I am waffling between Bear Mountain and Aspen Village. We are two active seniors. We like clean, quiet, a good bed, decent TV. The most updated interior would be preferred....not fancy, just newer furnishings. Debating between a room with two queens at BM and a one king bed cottage at AV. Thank you!

    • How hard is the Crypt Lake Trail?

      by Jayciel Online Now Jun 26, 2007 at 1:53 PM

      Hi, My husband and I will be visiting Waterton in August, he really wants to hike the Crypt Lake trail. Some things I read make it seem not too bad, others I have read make it seem like you need to be able to run a marathon to hike it. I am in my early 30's and in good health, I am not an avid runner or exerciser but I don't consider myself a couch potato either. Do you think most people could handle this hike if they are in relatively good health?
      Thanks!
