Winter may be around to stay for a while longer but, that doesn’t mean you can’t look forward to vacation season.  Last year tourism in Canada saw a significant rise thanks in part to the Canada 150 celebration.  However, that does not mean that the travelling is over, there are still endless places in the country worth checking out.  And now, one company has released a list of twenty destinations you should be putting on your hit list.

Vacay.ca is an online travel magazine that has noticed a growth in popularity among Canada.  They discovered that travellers looking at Canada are not only concerned about hitting our most popular cities but discovering our wild side.

The website says, “for the first time, the Vacay.ca 20 Best Places to Visit in Canada for 2018 is led not by a destination but a voyage.  Adventure Canada’s Arctic cruises stand out because of their ability to bring visitors to remote destinations and to do so in comfort and among a group of passengers who are fascinating and educated, including author Margaret Atwood.”

The list is topped by arctic adventures but, also offers versatility that matches our nation’s identity.  Here is the full list from Vacay.ca:
