The love for Canada remains strong in 2017 with a recent ranking placing it in second place for its outstanding beauty.

Rough Guides, a travel publication based in London, had this to say about our home and native land:

"In a close call for second place is Canada: home of lumberjacks, beavers and maple syrup (if you believe everything you read). But there’s much more on offer in Canada, not least its mixture of raw beauty and majestic landscapes. On Twitter, @ToursByLocals says there are “so many beautiful places in the world, but I’m still blown away by our hometown in BC, Canada."

Canada was only exceeded by Scotland, which claimed the top spot for its dramatic landscapes, ancient ruins and connection to Harry Potter. The full ranking is shown below:
