We're all spending way more time in Canada this year. Whether you're road tripping across Ontario, taking an Ontario staycation or sipping your way through the best Prince Edward County wineries, there's always something to do and to discover in this great province and nation.
If you're looking to broaden your horizons, there is no better way to explore Canada than from the perspective of the people who have been calling this land home for 15,000 years. For travellers who are seeking a different story, Indigenous travel experiences across Canada are now on Airbnb.
Airbnb recently partnered with the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada and together they've launched a new feature that lets users search for Indigenous experiences, cultural sites and accommodations across Canada.
For the ultimate living history lesson, immerse yourself in the culture, traditions, food and stories of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. Since Airbnb has partnered with the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada, the goal is to showcase experiences and accommodations that are owned and operated by Indigenous People.
Explore Ontario's Manitoulin Island, the world’s largest freshwater lake island, and learn from the island's six Anishinaabe First Nations communities. Then check out Bridal Veil Falls and the Ojibwe Cultural Foundation. For a longer road trip, Wendake is just 15 minutes from Quebec City and is home to the Huron-Wendat People whose rich history runs as deep as the surrounding river and forest.
There's so much to see in Canada, you just have to look for it and luckily Airbnb and the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada make these experiences easier to find.
