Conde Nast Traveler recently published its picks of the best places to travel in 2020. And included in list this time is Guyana and the Canadian Arctic — and don’t forget represent the Guyana Tourism Authority and Adventure Canada (who is mentioned in the article.) . A great month for us!
What they said about Guyana: “Though it has plenty of reasons to stand out — as South America’s only English-speaking country, and with a strikingly diverse population of Indian, African, Chinese, European, and Amerindian descent — Guyana has long hovered under the radar. But this relative quietness isn’t going to last long. The 2015 discovery of oil offshore has led to surging interest in the country. What that means for Guyana is still playing out, but so far, its abundance of natural beauty has remained shielded from the masses.”
What they said about northern Canada: “The Canadian Arctic is the world’s last and most pristine wilderness, with places man has not walked upon for over 500 years. It’s the ultimate destination for travelers, with a certain starkness that only polar regions can provide . . . Climate change is affecting the Canadian Arctic at more than twice the rate of anywhere else on Earth. [However] the cracking of the ice has also provided travelers on Adventure Canada’s ships the opportunity to glimpse the wreckage of the HMS Erebus and HMS Terror from Sir John Franklin’s ill-fated expedition through the Northwest Passage.”
