According to the publisher specialized in travel guides, the best country to travel in 2017 is Canada, which is home to dynamic cities, some of which stand out in quality of life. It is important to note that next year you will celebrate 150 years of your confederation . Also, the loonie is weak, so prices are lower as well.
The second place on the list goes to Colombia, a country that has much to offer the traveler: a vibrant mix of culture , hospitality, nature … It is important that you bear in mind that Pope Francis will set foot on Colombian soil next year. It will be the first papal visit to the country in 30 years.
The first European country on the list is Finland, which will celebrate its centenary in 2017. For this reason, next year a lot of events will be organized: outdoor concerts, collective culinary experiences , exhibitions… Also, you should know that the country will host the World Nordic Ski Championships and the World Figure Skating Championships on Ice.
In fourth position we find Dominica, a Caribbean island that surprises with its empty beaches and its prehistoric ferns. The best thing about this place is that it has been kept safe from urbanization and deforestation that have affected other areas of the Caribbean. However, it seems that in 2018 the first big chain resorts will be inaugurated, so it is better to visit this place as soon as possible.
Fifth on the list is Nepal which, despite having suffered tremendous earthquakes, has preserved a lot of important monuments, including iconic temples. In fact, many territories were spared extensive damage, such as the most popular hiking trails . IF you visit the country next year, you will be doing your bit to make it recover more strongly.
