From waterfront glamping on Vancouver Island to driving along the coastal roads of Jeju, South Korea, we present our top three travel stories from this year.
Waterfront views? Check. Cozy furnishings? Check. Close proximity to nature? Another check. In Tofino, Wildpod Glamping offers a refreshing new way to experience Vancouver Island. If observing incredible sunsets and harbour marine life constitutes your ideal weekend getaway, you’ll find this fully-equipped geodesic dome the perfect spot for some much-needed rest and relaxation.
Jorge and Annika Siemsen combined their passion for art, community, and nature to design this quaint bed and breakfast, art gallery, and farm on Salt Spring Island. After visiting Ganges Village, which is just a short walk away, you’ll find most afternoons are best spent lounging outside with a book in hand, or inside an intimate wood-burning barrel sauna overlooking nature.
UNESCO-recognized natural wonders meet fascinating cultural traditions on South Korea’s biggest island, Jeju. For incredible views of the island, climb the paved stairway to the top of Seongsan Ilchulbong or drive along the coastal road for a glimpse of the female divers of Jeju. At night, be sure to visit Dongmun Night Market for a taste of the daily catch.
