2 Months to see Canada, 2015 decision made, now to plan.

Jump to last reply

So I'm in the middle of a T/R from our UK trip in October and we've just confirmed with our traveling buddies, that we will go to Canada, next year.. As we have two daughters getting married this year, there will be NO trips for us in 2014. So with that in mind, we've finally made our decision to travel to Canada in late May 2015.

We will have 2 months (still flexible) and this will include a 7 night cruise into Alaska. We've started researching this part of the trip as we will be doing it with our friends. What we have determined so far is that we all have agreed to go with a smaller ship, approx. 60-75 people. We think we will do the Juneau to Ketchikan route, late May, then fly (?) to possibly Seattle and collect a motorhome and just start driving.

Our reasons for Seattle are, we've never been and its absolutely on our list of must see destinations and it appears much cheaper to hire the M/home in the US (still looking into if this is possible). Our friends will probably do the same but not as long. We are well travelled and love the freedom of driving. We've really thought about the train trip on the Rocky Mountaineer but it appears we can drive much the same route, taking our own time, for a fraction of the cost. We all agree that we would rather use that money, doing the best cruise we can afford.

So the map is out and I'd love to hear your must see, shouldn't miss or just your favourite place in Canada. There are of course the main city's that we will visit but our interests are more nature orientated, views, walks, photo ops, OH and FOOD we love trying local foods.

So there you have it......let the planning begin.

Ps. we have done the US quite a bit but our only visit to Canada was Niagara Falls and once when we were driving in Maine, we crossed the border.........just 'cause.
