      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!

      We are a team of 6 people who love hiking and forest trekking. Next week we are planning to go to Algonquin park. We read some information about this place from here . 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?

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

      Canada Dec 3, 2016 at 3:50 AM

      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

    • 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.

      Christmas/New Years in Whitehorse

      Whitehorse Aug 14, 2014 at 10:25 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 Whitehorse, or should I go somewhere else in Canada, i.e. Yellowknife? Thanks!

      Hi,

      I am planning a trip to Whitehorse with my boyfriend in early January. We hope to see the Northern Lights and go dog sledding. We are from Australia and are finding it very hard to imagine the cold weather!

      We are looking for some advice regarding areas to stay in Whitehorse, and how to get around the city. I contacted a B&B slightly out of the city, and they suggested we hire a car. Is driving possible during January around Whitehorse? Alternatively we would rather get around by local transport, is there any public transport available?

      Thanks for your help!

      Internet/Cellphone Connection

      Yukon Territory May 29, 2012 at 1:16 PM

      Just curious about the main connection. I have Rogers as my provider for the cellphone. Who covers Whitehorse area and/or Haines Junction? Is it worth taking a Rocket stick up there?
      What about connection when taking the Alaska Ferry up - while going through the Inside Passage is there connection? Or is it a roaming area or blanked out area? Oh dear, sounds like I want to be in contact everywhere. More curiosity than anything else since I'm not a text-er and rarely ever turn on my cellphone anywhere else!

      September in Whitehorse

      Whitehorse Aug 2, 2011 at 8:58 AM

      An Aussie friend and I are considering driving, mid-September 2012, from Skagway to Whitehorse (yes, we are aware that he has to rent the car as Canadian law won't allow a car rented in the US by a Canadian into Canada! Makes no sense that an Aussie can rent the car!) Is this a safe drive at that time of year? (ie, it IS too early for snow, right???) I'm assuming we have to be wary of moose and other wildlife on the roads? Are the Northern Lights visible in September? What about returning via Haines Junction, and the Haines Highway? I know we'd have to get the ferry from Haines to Skagway, but is that a viable idea?
      Any hotels that we should avoid? Since we have a car, it does mean we don't have to stick to downtown hotels or ones by the airport - any highly recommended places for just one night? Any restaurants that really are must go to's? We're not looking for high-end - just good food, and hopefully locally sourced.
      Thank you for your assistance. VTers are the best!

      We drive up and down the AlCan every summer and always really like Kluane Lake. We never see boats on the lake and wonder if and what kind of fish are found there, if there are any guiding services or outfitters nearby, and what kind of luck can I expect fishing in early June or early August.

      Driving from Skagway to Fairbanks (or Anchorage)

      Yukon Territory Mar 26, 2007 at 5:58 AM

      I was thinking of using the bus lines from Whitehorse to Fairbanks, via Dawson City (not sure there are still connections from Skagway, as Alaska Direct doesn't seem to have a website anymore), but the agency I enquired with seems to favor the car rental option (maybe for business reasons, of course)... My problem is, I'm not sure it would be reasonable for somebody like me, who never drives (I've got my licence, but, living in Paris, I don't own a car and only use public transportation...), to head into the Yukon on my own and onto gravel roads right after mid-May... Never even drove an automatic car!
      So, does anybody around here have any experience of such a drive, and do you think the idea is completely insane, given the circumstances??
      Thanks!

      Road Conditions in July

      Yukon Territory Oct 9, 2006 at 1:09 PM

      Greetings,
      my family and I will drive through BC and YT next year and ultimately Alaska. I wonder if anyone can give me tips about road conditions in general during the month of July. For example, according to MapQuest, the driving time from Stewart, BC to Watson Lake, YT on Route 37 takes 15 hours yet it's only 400 miles. That would be a bit too much to drive in one day. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (I know, get a map! but BC/YT maps are hard to come by in Munich :-)
      Many thanks and best wishes,

      Yukon Territory Jun 5, 2006 at 12:27 PM

      We are planning a 2-week 100km Donjek Route trip in mid-June 2006. Two weeks should give us enough time not only to complete the route but also make Mt. Hoge ascent and some glacier day-trips. Since this is an off-trail route, we are looking for anyone who has done it to get some tips. Any tips on the route as well as Donjek glacier and Mt. Hoge ascent will be appreciated. Our special interest is finding someone who can advise on the best river crossing points.
