Ridgeback Lodge

Kingston, New Brunswick

Kingston, New Brunswick

Camping is one of the most quintessentially Canadian things to do. You'd be hard-pressed to find someone without at least one memory of sleeping in a tent in the great outdoors (or your backyard).

Consider Ridgeback Lodge an elevation of that same experience. Their geodesic domes bring you right into nature without sacrificing the comforts of your home. Each is equipped with a king size bed, bathroom, kitchen, BBQ and the pièce de résistance, a wood-fired Japanese hot tub. Has glamping ever felt this good?

Fogo Island Inn

Fogo Island, Newfoundland

Fogo Island, Newfoundland

Perched along the rocks of Newfoundland’s Back Western Shore, Fogo Island Inn looks intriguingly out of place. But it’s more than just a marvel of design; it's a cultural hub that aims to integrate and support its community. Furniture and textiles are handcrafted by local artisans, and the restaurant serves fish caught by local fishermen.

While the Inn offers the usual hotel amenities, including a library and cinema, what will truly make your trip unique is its selection of seasonal activities, which include hiking, fishing, boat building and more.

Glacier Skywalk

Columbia Icefield, Alberta

Columbia Icefield, Alberta

There’s a reason why the Canadian Rockies are known around the world as a 'bucket list' destination for travellers. The region is home to breathtaking views of raw, untouched wilderness.

Now, the perfect way to take the stunning scenery in: a 400-meter walkway overlooking the Sunwapta Valley. Visitors can walk along the glass-floored observation platform and stare down at the 918-foot drop below. It's an exhilarating way to discover the glacier-formed valleys that surround you.
