With Canada’s special 150th birthday celebrations still fresh in our minds, here’s a look at some hidden travel gems worth checking out this summer. Even better, discover how some of these great places would be an excellent destination for your group! 



IHG’s Hidden Travel Gems:

After a three-month contest with members of the IHG Rewards Club, over 4,000 submissions were whittled down to 150 Hidden Gems across Canada. Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, this list chronicles coast-to-coast travel spots, both urban and rural, that will take your breath away. You might even discover a new favourite in your own city.


Top 10:

When USA Today revealed its Top 10 Canadian destinations, the resort town of St. Andrews beat out heavyweights like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver for first on the list. Smaller cities such as Saskatoon, Canmore, Lunenburg, Quebec City and St. John’s, Newfoundland were nominated. UNESCO World Heritage sites figured prominently on the list.


Love Letter:

And just because it’s really neat, check out Fairmont’s Love Letter to Canada.
