October 05, 2013

The National Geographic Society has announced Canada’s “50 Places of a Lifetime”. Six of the 50 are ‘north of 56’.

Mr. Keith Bellows, Editor in Chief of National Geographic Travel picked out the 50 places. Those ‘north of 56’ were:




So many places to choose from. Other places that are awesome and truly worth a visit: Dawson City, the Dempster Highway, Tuktoyaktuk NWT and Pangnirtung, Nunavut. There are marvelous sites in northern Quebec (Nunavik).

Few Canadians have visited the north. It’s vastness and beauty offer unlimited tourism potential to these Canadians and the other 7 billion people around the world.
