7 Ways to Replace Your International Trip with a Canadian Alternative

Posted on


Can’t take your Italian adventure to Tuscany or your African safari this year? You might be surprised to find a comparable alternative in Canada!

In the last 20 years, the experiences that Canadian tourism operators offer has evolved from the mass market model of tourism (e.g., Niagara Falls or the CN Tower) to include rich, immersive, and personalized experiences: walking polar bear safaris from luxury lodges; culinary adventures by yacht among BC’s wild islands; heli dog-sledding by moonlight.

This year, many Canadians are seeking a replacement for an overseas trip and are looking at Canada in a new way. To help, we looked at the experiences we offer and created a “Translate Your Trip” article to help others do the same. We hope you enjoy exploring it!
