National Geographic Selects Canada for Digital Super Mag
With the launch of 50 Places of a Lifetime: Canada, National Geographic Travel brings together the best Canadian travel writers with National Geographic photographers.
The result: a destination-based digital super mag with comprehensive coverage of any single country.
Claimed to be the world’s first digital super mag, it showcases all-new content from every Canadian province and territory and launched Wednesday on Nationalgeographic.com/canada50. Additional content rolls out the entire month of October.

The super mag’s content includes practical travel information on where to stay, when to go, how to get around, what to eat or drink, what to buy, and what to read or watch before you go. There are also helpful links as well as a fun fact about each destination.
