Victoria Is Ranked Canada's Best Winter Workcation Spot & Here Are 5 Airbnbs You Could Stay

As more people work from home, it means that you can travel without taking the time off.

Workcations have taken off in the past couple of years and new data just confirmed that Victoria is the best place to take it this winter in Canada.

In a media release, Icelandair has ranked places to go on a workcation in the winter and Victoria made the top five in the world.

The decision was made based on the quality of life, restaurant prices, internet speed, Instagramability, rainy days, temperature, and snowfall.
