Did you already know that renting an RV (recreational vehicle) and staying at campgrounds while travelling Canada is not that expensive as you might think? Price-wise it is more the less the same as travelling by rental car and spending the nights at hotels. And of course, it's a totally different experience to travel by RV. Are you in for some more personal travel advice? In that case, please contact me! http://www.tour-guide-canada.com/tailored-itineraries.html

Dog sledding is possibly the most fun way to travel. It´s definitely the oldest way. It’s a thrilling experience to be part of a dog team running at full speed. However, your first time on a dog sledding trip might be a little different from expected. Why? Read my story here: http://www.tour-guide-canada.com/dog-sledding-vacations.html#howling-dogs

When travelling between October 1st until April 30th, make sure your ‘winters’ are on and to bring chains along. This is obligatory in Canada! For your own safety (and to be covered by insurance!), please check your rental car for winter tires and chains this time of year.

Witness the turning of leaves. 

Canadian autumns are incomparable beautiful. If you would like to experience Indian Summer with  wonderful fall foliage, you definitely should visit Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario during autumn. You will experience a relative quietness,  as it’s a low season in the park. 

Getting wanderlusty after seeing these pictures? Check this page for more details about travelling to Algonquin Provincial Park: http://www.tour-guide-canada.com/eastern-canada-travel.html#eastern-canada-travel-3

Polar bear capital.

October is approaching! Autumn is beautiful in the whole of Canada but the months October and November are extra special to Churchill, Manitoba. In the area around this city - nicknamed as the polar bear capital of the world – polar bears await the forming of ice over the Hudson Bay.

Don’t let the taxman get you by surprise. 

Like in any other country, foreign visitors in Canada have to pay taxes too. The products or services that you are buying define the height of the tax amount. Since there are a lot of different kinds of taxes, tourists are often caught by surprise. Make sure you’re not! Check this information about the various kinds of taxes, e.g. taxes on lodging, federal taxes, and the different taxes per province: http://www.tour-guide-canada.com/taxes-in-canada.html

Better safe than sorry. 

Did you know a visit to a Canadian doctor might cost foreign visitors $100 up to $500 during daytime? Hospitalization might results in an invoice of three- or four thousand dollars per day!  Because anything can happen during your stay in Canada – think of twisted ankles and allergic reactions – medical travel insurance definitely is recommended. Tour Guide Canada presents some tips and hints that can help you pick a suiting health insurance: http://www.tour-guide-canada.com/travel-medical-insurance-canada.html.
