  • I am off to Canada in late September for two weeks. Anybody recommend some must sees?

  • Do you like mountains and outdoors stuff? There's lots of that and it's all good.

    We took the overnight train from Vancouver to Jasper for hikes then drove to Calgary via lake Louise and Bamf.

    Tres bon and we didn't even get eaten by bears!

  • I do. I was a little concerned it might be too late for proper outdoors stuff. I had ideas of walking up Whistler.

  • get a ferry across to Nanaimo, a bus or drive across the island, and stay at Ucluelet or Tofino. it's beautiful. I've been in spring and at Christmas, I imagine autumn is good too...

  • Should be OK - but at the top of Whistler and in the moutains it will get very cold at night.

    Go to whistler, hire a mountain bike, get rad

    The grouse grind is good fun

  • I'm actually doing a v similar trip in the mid 2 weeks of sept - am wondering, is it worth taking a road bike? The feeling I get is that the roads are mostly great big things designed for trucks and the good riding is rad off roading, is that about right?
