      Where to have Christmas Eve dinner?

      Quebec Nov 15, 2016 at 3:52 AM

      Hi. I will spend Christmas in Quebec this year (so excited!) I am just wondering where is a good restaurant to have Christmas Eve dinner? Most of the restaurants are closed and one of the nice restaurant I saw (Panache) only accept reservation from their hotel guests for Christmas Eve. Is there any other restaurants you can recommend? Also, if we don't make a reservation, can we likely find a restaurant that is open on Christmas Eve on that day? Thanks in advance!

      Is it allowed to skinny dip in any provinces of Canada?

      Canada 18 hours ago

      Hi, I and my sweetheart are on a vacation to Canada. We are staying in Toronto, with our hometown friends who are here for higher studies. I asked them if they knew if it's okay to swim undressed in pools or lakes. They don't know about it. My girlfriend wants to take a nude dip in the cold water with me and is it okay to do that in Canada? My friend knows a place which is secluded, so, hopefully, nobody would see us. LOL

We need to know whether any special permissions needed to travel deep into the jungle. Can somebody suggest me some good places to camp there for 5 or 6 days?

    • Picking a large Canadian city to move to. Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto, Edmonton?

      Canada Nov 13, 2016 at 11:05 AM

      Hey guys, so I'm considering moving to the big city for school to experience it. I live close to Calgary, about 4 hours away so that's what it's looking like. But at the same time I want to go either further west or further east to experience a different part of Canada.

      To be honest, I've heard realllly bad things about Toronto from the family that I do have who've lived there. They say there's way too many people, the people there are very rude, it's dirty, it's just all around a crappy place to live. I want to be in a big city, and if I am going down east it's most likely going to be to Toronto. Online it looks good, it's multicultural, it has lots to do, etc. Which is what I want. But from the people I know who actually have experience living there, they hated it.

      Vancouver is not even really in the question either. It's simply way too expensive for me. As a student, I can't afford on a part time job to pay $1000 a month minimum just on rent. That's crazy to me, and unrealistic. But I do have family there who love it. (Extremely wealthy family so they actually are able to be there comfortably.) Everybody seems to love it there, though.

      I'm from Alberta and have been to Calgary tons because 99% of my family live there and I really like it there. It's big, the people are nice, and it's a little more affordable than Toronto/Vancouver. The only reason I'm hesitant to move there is because I've already been there soooo many times before. I want to go somewhere new and experience different things.

      Don't know anything about Edmonton. I've heard it's just like Calgary but colder.

      Any ideas? Thanks guys.

      Yellowknife in December from tropical country. Advice please.

      by europe20146 Online Now 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

      by jjkent Online Now 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?

      by leigh767 Online Now 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...

      by TorontoDuluth Online Now 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!
