Best 25 new guided trips

It is time for the annual lists again. National Geographic Adventure Magazine rated what it thinks are the top 25 new trips in the world. This time, there are two Canadian trips. Searching for polar bears in the Torngat Mountains with Wildland Tours, and paddling the Great Bear Rainforest with Legendary Expeditions from Canmore. The latter got a 6-page spread and front-page coverage. Not bad to get 2 out of 25 trips.

Among their list of top 55 tour operators in the world there are also three Canadian companies. There may be more in their full online list of 160. They are mainly outbound, but do operate some great Canadian trips too. Obviously, the media and clients are pretty happy with Canada.
