I´m planning to fly into Toronto around the 11th of August this year. I´ve been doing as much research as I can at the moment with limited internet access etc. So I apologise if any of this which I imagine is ineviably repeated.
I´m thinking of spending about two weeks between all of these places before flying out to Calgary possibly on the weekend of Friday the 22nd to meet with family. However, this date is flexible. I probably also have a budget of close to $5000 for the whole trip including another 10 days in Alberta and British Columbia.
My main questions are:
1. Is this enough time to see Toronto and Niagra as well as some smaller places along the lake if I´m working my way towards Ottawa,Montreal and Quebec?
2. Should I skip Quebec and fly out of Montreal?
3. Or Should I skip Ottawa and visit Montreal and fly out of Quebec?
There is so much to see and do that this is quite overwhelming. Coming from Europe sometimes it´s hard comprehend distances etc.
I should also mention I´m a solo traveller. I´m planning to bus or train the distances between the 4 cities with VIA rail and Go transit. Renting a car is not really a viable option due to price and the fact that I´m under 25. I´m hoping to see as much nature as possible given the fact that I won´t have a car. Hopefully hostels will provide some types of trips or I will meet others who have a car or something along those lines.
I have a feeling I´m being quite ambitious about what I can do in 11 days.Edited: 01 June 2014, 14:40
