Last year, we began showcasing images from Can Geo’s Instagram community on our website, hoping to inspire more people to share their photos from Canada and around the world with us. 

This year, for our first Travel roundup of 2018, we’ve picked 10 photos we hope will inspire our readers to get outside and explore their own backyard. As the January/February 2018 issue of Canadian Geographic — which celebrates the completion of The Great Trail — begins arriving in mailboxes and on newsstands across the country, we felt it was the perfect time to celebrate Canada’s beauty, from coast to coast to coast.
