You'll Be Surprised by These Favourite Winter Travel Destinations

Posted: 11/22/2013 7:58 am


It's no secret that Canadians relish their winter vacations, those two weeks during which they can escape the bitter cold (and their jobs). In one of the most accurate, detailed descriptions of Canadian air travel patterns ever revealed by a travel agency, FlightNetwork.com released a study Monday showing where Canadian air travellers are most likely to end up this winter.

The findings were derived from flight statistics of last winter's travel bookings. It's no surprise Canadians seek sunny warm weather and head south but some of the results will raise an eyebrow or two.

The top 14 destinations are listed in the slideshow below.

The full article, including statistics, can be read on the Let's Roll travel blog.
