RTX Traveler Magazine Issue 13 | Canada

2016 Traveler_Canada-COVEROh, Canada!

As our neighbor to the north, some may overlook Canada as a vacation destination. For those who like to travel internationally, it may seem too close to home. For those who prefer to hop in the car and be in their vacation destination in just a couple of hours, Canada may seem just out of reach. In this issue of RTX Traveler Magazine, we have found many reasons to put your assumptions and preconceived notions aside, change your U.S. dollars for some loonies and toonies, don your toque, grab a double double and head north.

Banff

Our first Canadian featured destination in this issue is beautiful Banff, a haven in the Canadian Rockies where visitors love to explore the Banff National Park’s stunning mountain vistas, underground caves and glacier-fed lakes, soak in the Hot Springs or take in one of many festivals that keep folks entertained throughout the year.

Panorama

Ditch the crowds and strap on your skis for seemingly endless back country slopes in this secluded and magnificent resort skiing destination. Panorama Resort has jaw-dropping views and offers ski-in and ski-out access, a luxury sought out by ski fanatics. While you’ll have all you need from dining and entertainment on the property, a trek to Invermere for shopping and a meal is just 20 minutes away.

Exclusive Destinations | RTX Vacation Ideas

We take inspiration from these two Canadian destinations as we explore other fantastic places where RTX members can travel, whether it’s by exchanging a week, booking a discounted Getaway or finding great savings on nightly rates at hotels and resorts through our website. We highlight favorite winter places where the apres ski scenes are as hot as the snow is cold, and where winter activities go beyond the ski slopes. We also feature some warmer winter destinations, and a few national parks where you can really get in touch with nature.

In addition to these great destination highlights, be sure to check out our World Tours, Weekend Getaway and Member News features. We hope you enjoy the 13th issue of RTX Traveler Magazine and that it gives you inspiration for your next vacation with RTX!
