Top 20 Instagram Photos of Canada Shared with #ExploreCanada

Post by: Rishad Daroowala

For the past 8 months, the Canadian Tourism Commission’s Instagram account @ExploreCanada has been publishing a photo each day submitted by travellers and locals in Canada using the #ExploreCanada hashtag.

When we first started publishing photos, we used to share some of our epic brand shots we took from our yearly shoots across the country - And believe me, we visit some really cool places with some of Canada’s best photographers. While the shots were sweet, they weren’t exactly the day to day shots most travellers would take on the go. So essentially we wanted to show travellers who visit our country what Canada would look like from their perspective. 

In the past 8 months, we went from 421 shared photos to 33,243.  To showcase a little sample of what we received, I’ve put together my Top 20 Photos submitted with #ExploreCanada. And remember, if you want to show off your best photos of Canada to the world, just use the hashtag and we’ll share our faves! - with credit of course :)
