About the List

Anyone who has spent a significant time abroad knows that Canadians are avid travellers. Something about our nature spurs us to explore other countries. We’re also overrepresented in many overseas expat communities — especially those of English teachers in Asia — and make up a disproportionately large chunk of the travel blogging community.

Few Canadians know just how many Canucks are out there exploring the globe and writing about it from a Canadian perspective. To highlight the travels of our wanderlusting countrymen and women, we compiled this list of the Top 100 Canadian Travel Blogs.

In compiling the list, we first asked thousands of travel bloggers to nominate their Canadian friends. Then, our editor, veteran travel blogger Matt Gibson, hand-picked the best 100 Canadian travel blogs from the lot. We feel that ranking the blogs would be arbitrary because both the tastes of readers and the contents of blogs vary greatly. So, instead, we listed the Top 100 Canadian Travel Blogs in alphabetical order.

 

TIP: Most descriptions in the list include areas and topics featured on the blog. If you’d like to search for blogs by area, country, or topic, use your browser’s text search function (CTRL+F on a PC | Command+F on a Mac) to search the page for a specific word or term.

Where Sidewalks End

where sidewalks end About the Author:

Ian Ord, originally from Guelph, Ontario, explores the world off-the-beaten-path. His first solo adventure was a hitchhiking trip across Canada at the age of 16. Since then — having visited all seven continents before by age of 30 — and having worked in the Tour Operating industry for more than six years, Ian brings a wealth of global travel experience to the table.

Ian has partnered with a long-time travel industry professional and expat of South East Asia, Sakai Naismith, to run off-the-beaten-path tours, helping people find authentic experiences. WSE Tours promotes Positive Impact Tourism – helping communities become more self-sufficient through education of both locals visiting tourists.

About the Blog:

Where Sidewalks End focuses primarily on off-the-beaten-path destinations – things one doesn’t find in regular guidebooks. It also features a weekly interview section “Meet Off the Beaten Path Explorer: X”, which delves deep into the reasons that some of the world’s most travelled explorers have made travel the focus of their life. There are also several articles discussing controversial subjects to encourage those who travel think about the impact they have on local cultures and the environment.

    Good to see it’s out Matt. Will have to start going through the list and see if there’s anyone we haven’t read yet.

  • Jennifer

    Great list! Some I didn’t know in there. But this should be a top Canadian anglo blogs list! :)

  • Natalie T.

    Great list, Matt!

  • Samuel Jeffery

    Thanks for putting this together Matt! I know it was a lot of hard work.

  • Ayngelina

    Who knew there were so many of us! Great work.

  • Kirsten

    Don’t forget about 1924 London- 17 countries, and too many cities to count! http://1924london.wordpress.com/

  • I know. There are a lot of us! Thanks A!

  • Thanks, I’ll check it out!

  • Jordana @The Urban Xenophile

    This is a splendid list, chock full of fabulous and fascinating travel enthusiasts. Definitely honored to be in their company. Epic piece of work Matt!

  • Thanks Jordana! There are some pretty amazing blogs in there!

  • Mary @ Green Global Travel

    Wow! This looks like an incredible compilation! It’s great to see some amazing bloggers on the list and I am thrilled to be introduced to so many new and exciting blogs! Thanks Matt!

  • Cristina

    This makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. Great to be in such fine company. Now, off to celebrate with a big bowl of poutine….

  • Thanks Bret! Glad you enjoyed it!

  • Jeannie Mark

    Wow, there are so many that I have yet to discover. Thanks for putting this together, Matt!

  • My pleasure Jeannie! It was pretty interesting getting to learn about all the blogs I hadn’t heard of yet.

  • Dalene

    Now we know how you spent your last month. :) There sure are a lot of us out there!

  • Yep, a month sounds about right ;)

  • A Cook Not Mad (Nat)

    Thanks again for including us Matt, nice work!

  • Kerrie @ Family Food and Travel

    What a fabulous list! Can’t wait to read some of the blogs I haven’t read before. Love that we have so many wonderful Canadian travel bloggers.

  • Frederic Gonzalo

    Great list, Matt. But the title is misleading… it should read “Top 100 anglo-canadian travel blogs”. There is no mention whatsoever of French-speaking blogs, which drive a heck of a lot of traffic as well. Thus, it’s quite an incomplete list… Shame, really. I guess it’s yet another confirmation of the “two solitudes” in this country, eh?

  • @Boomergirl50

    Hi Matt,
    Thanks for including Roadstories.ca among 100 Top Canadian Travel Blogs. We’re so lucky to be able to travel Canada as much as we do and write about it. An honour to be included with the gang.

  • Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! I think you may be reading a little bit much into the absence of French blogs. I would happily have included them, but none were nominated for inclusion on the list (these blogs, if you’ll read the introduction, were picked from nominees provided by the travel blogging community and public).

    That said, maybe we’ll look into a French blog list in the future if we can find somebody to curate it. How is your French?

  • Greg @ Canada eh Travel & Adventure

    Great job Matt! TY for highlighting some great Canadian talent. We, the EH Team, are happy to be part of your list and look forward to working with other Canadian Bloggers and yourself down the line. Be well. Be active eh!

  • Greg @ Canada eh Travel & Adventure

    Great job Matt! The EH Team at CanadaEH.net are please to be part of such a talented group of Canadian Bloggers! TY for putting Canadian talent in the spotlight.

  • Thanks Greg. I can say the same of you. You guys have created an amazing Canadian resource. I’ve used it several times to find obscure information on awesome activities.

  • lorraine o'donnell Williams

    You did a great job, Matt. I am sure there are just as many excellent good ones out there that require you to make a second list sometime in the future. Will keep this one for future reference/

  • David @ HitTheRoad.ca

    I’ve checked a few times to see if you missed someone. Nope. You got them all! ;)

    I have been lucky enough to have worked with several of the writers on this list. It was a great experience working with top tier travel writers. I am now certainly hoping to work with a few more!

  • Dave Conroy - Tired of I.T!

    Great List! I’ve met quite a few of these bloggers throughout my travels in real life, and sharing knowledge via electronic means. Don’t forget about me! In 2009 I sold everything I owned, quit my job working in the computer security industry, bought a bicycle, and somehow have been pedaling around the world ever since. Although it’s been a few years since I’ve been in Canada you might appreciate my take on visiting all of the capital buildings in Canada and managing to pull off a headstand in their coveted rooms :P Slightly warped viewpoints, and an awful lot of information for those with a geeky side, and curious about what its like to live in the bush and travel with all of your worldly possessions on a bicycle :)
