Canada Named Best Travel Destination In 2017 By Lonely Planet

By Alexandra Talty

Thanks to a great tourism infrastructure and a weak Canadian dollar, the Lonely Planet named the country the best travel destination for 2017. So, whether you're looking for a new home post-November 8th or just want an outdoorsy getaway, it is time for some poutine and Justin Trudeau.

"Canada is always popular with us," said Lonely Planet's Canada destination editor Alex Howard, in an email. "But there are several things going on in 2017 that made it number one. First, it's the country's biggest birthday party in recent memory with the sesquicentennial next year, and they won't be shy about celebrating. Also, international travellers can expect their money to go further due to the weak Canadian dollar, so now is the time to start planning a trip."

Colombia ranks second, with the guidebook calling the South American country the "ultimate comeback kid." Celebrating 100 years of independence in 2017, Finland came in third. The Scandinavian nation is hosting this year's World Figure Skating Championships and Nordic Ski Championships, so get ready for some alpine fun.
