Travelling has never been easier than it is now and as a result, Canadians are jet-setting everywhere. Considering how many people use Airbnb to book their accommodations, the booking site compiles a list of the top trending locations for the year. The ranking depends on how many people have searched, booked or added a destination to their wish list.

While it may seem that the best places in the world to visit are always outside of Canada, you may be surprised to find out that a Canadian city found itself on the trending locations list. None other than Winnipeg, Manitoba!

It's easy to forget about Winnipeg when places such as Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto are such hot spots to travel to, but it's not hard to see why the destination is trending. From the gorgeous views to the possibility of seeing a polar bear, it's definitely the perfect place to visit if you're an adventure seeker!
