To help you dream up and plan your next trip for whenever it may be possible again, whether it’s somewhere closer to home, or in another part of the world, we’re here to help. Here are the top five destinations Canadians are dreaming of visiting during the backend of the year.

1. Canmore, Alberta

Looking for world-class hiking? Canmore is for you. Located 50 miles outside of Calgary, the area is home to the Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park, which offers hiking, Nordic skiing, and biking for year-round fun.

2. Maui, Hawaii

Home to Hawaii’s highest peak and surf-ready waves, Maui could be considered the adventure capital of the world. Come for the surf, sand, hikes, lava flows, and so much more.

3. Victoria, British Columbia

Stunning architecture abounds in Victoria thanks to its Victorian structures. Head out for a self-guided tour and see all the details for yourself.

4. The Maldives

With crystalline waters all around, the Maldives are an ocean-lover’s paradise. Come to swim with the manta rays and soak up the equatorial sun.

5. Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Sometimes, you just want to sit back, relax, and have someone bring you a vacation drink with a tiny umbrella. And there’s no better spot for that than along the sugar-sand beaches in Playa del Carmen. For those looking for more activity, there’s snorkeling, boating, and more…but again, it’s okay to do nothing at all here all day long.
