Canadian Summer Travel Ideas!

The Travel Show invites you to explore your very own backyard and discover all the wonder and beauty that our country has to offer. This week’s topic is inspired by the launch of the new book “Frommers Far & Wide: A weekly Guide to Canada’s Best Travel Experiences”. This is a guide to Canada that caters to travellers of every interest.

Chris will be joined on the Travel Show this Saturday by Gene Shannon, Editor of "Far & Wide". The guide offers recommendations for every week of the year in all parts of Canada. So, for example, if you are going to be in a particular place at a particular time you can use the Guide to see what is going on while you are there. Or you can look for particular events or activities that interest you, and find the best place and the right time to go.

The Guide also features the favourite places of well-known Canadians such as TV personality Rick Mercer, Canadian novelist Johanna Skibsrud and professional wrestler Bret “The Hitman” Hart.

Frommers have also come up with their own “Top Ten Summer Vacations for Canadians” that includes hunting for icebergs in Newfoundland, snorkeling with Beluga whales in Churchill, Manitoba and hiking in Yoho National Park, BC.
