Been there, done that?
Nah. If you think you’ve seen it all, not so fast. Not all lists were created equal and the following isn’t your typical slathering of iconic destinations you’ve been reading about as the hottest of 2017 elsewhere – far from it.
Here, we’ve compiled the places currently abuzz with newfound energy and a distinct flavour that make it uniquely happening. The places you need to see now before they become a part of some tired list next year. If you’ve got your eye on a trip or two in the near future and are looking for someplace fresh, take note of these not-to-be-missed cities, countries and travel styles.
The new frontier! Larger than Life, Whitehorse is booming and it’s not just the summer months that see its population grow.
The Northern Lights are an annual winter draw but summers are still the best time to go. Yukon’s cry
stal clear lakes and rivers make for incredible arctic char and grayling fishing while hikers and cyclists love the extended daylight. Other than that, it’s music festivals, beer fests, museums and restaurants that all provide enough entertainment for the rest.
FLY: Air North year-round, directly into Whitehorse (YXY) from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna or Ottawa.
