Four Canadian Destinations Made It On The World's Ultimate Bucket List For 2018

Canada has once again been recognized for its outstanding beauty and natural wonder with its inclusion in The World's Ultimate Bucket List For 2018.

Compiled by FlightNetwork, the 50-item bucket list took into consideration the opinions and expertise of over 800 of the world's leading travel journalists, agencies, bloggers, and editors. Four classic Canadian experiences were included in the ranking, and here's a bit of what they had to say about them:

Via FlightNetwork

"If you’re looking for Northern Lights with a little luxury, Yellowknife, Canada, presents the magical views of water coloured lights with alongside incredible amenities."

Via FlightNetwork

"Epic mountain views. Deep, turquoise-water-filled canyons and lakes. Towering glaciers and crashing waterfalls. Misty forests and deep oceans harbouring the wildest of wildlife. Yes, this is, without doubt, Canada’s most spectacular outdoor wilderness."

Via FlightNetwork

"As one of the only locations in the world where humans live alongside wild polar bears, Churchill Manitoba, Canada, is the ideal location for your bear-seeking adventure. The region is hallmarked as the polar bear capital of the world for a reason — these majestic creatures traverse the tundra landscape throughout the summer and winter months."

Via FlightNetwork

"You can rent parkas and snow boots from the hotel, and they’ll even provide you with cold-tested sleeping bags to keep you cozy in your icy room. For added excitement, guests at the Swedish ice hotels can wander out into the night to view the miraculous Northern Lights, painting the sky in otherworldly colors."
