Hi there, me and a few friends are planning to travel around canda in the summer but i dont know much about canada e.g. where to go etc. We are going for 4 weeks and would like to do activities such as caneoing, whale watching jst outdoor activities in general. I have always wanted to stay in a log cabin at a lake side- do you know where the best places would be to vist to do these things.

Thanks for the info

spent 3 months travelling canada this summer so you can check out details if you fancy on our blog (

Might give you some rough ideas of where to go and how long to spend etc.

As a rough guide, the West of Canada sounds better from the sounds of what you want to do.... just remember.... Canada is a BIG Country !!!!!

Canada's big and really hard to soak it all in in a month... I would visit the west and take some time to see B.C./Alberta. Maybe renting a vehicle in Vancouver and visiting Van. Island then taking a beautiful ferry ride up North to Prince Rupert and then driving east to Jasper, down through Banff/Crowsnest pass and then passing back through B.C. to Vancouver. Lot's of opportunities for activities along the way.

I did a similar trip this summer (via motorbike) from Calgary and it was amazing.

Either way, Tofino is your best bet for whale watching.

You can also whale watch in Quebec, along the Saguenay. PLus that gives you the flexibility to visit Quebec City, Montreal and maybe head out to Ottawa and Toronto. As someone mentioned, Canada is very big - it takes a few days to drive across and flights are expensive. Pick the places you want to see and plan accordingly.

thanks for the info, what is the best way to get from toronto to vancouver, i was checking flights but they are very expensive- what about driving or gettin the train which is the best option. Where is the best national park to explore the rocky mountains?

There is no cheap way from Toronto to Vancouver-look to Westjet or Zoom for bargain flights.

Everything you want is found here but nothing is cheap.
