Samantha MacGregor

Travel Designer

Born and raised in Vancouver, Sam started in the tourism industry as a Scuba diving instructor and assistant manager of the diving operation for Club Med in Turks and Caicos. She spent over a year there; this began her love affair with the tourism industry. Upon returning to Vancouver, she soon departed on a two month road trip across Canada from West to East and back again. After driving the 18,000KM, she felt determined to help others discover the beauty and wonder of Canada. When not in the office, Samantha scuba dives, hikes, plays slow-pitch and considers herself a taco connoisseur.

What is your favorite place in Canada?

Newfoundland is a world of its own, brimming with unique experiences unlike anywhere else. St. John’s was my favorite place – walking along the Signal Hill Trail, then sitting to watch the whales along the coast line, and completing the perfect day with a pint at a local pub on Battery Street.

What is your best travel memory in Canada?

Driving Highway 430 north in Newfoundland, through Gros Morne National Park (home to the largest concentration of moose in the world) up to L’anse Aux Meadows (the first Viking landing in Canada) while listening to Great Big Sea (a fantastic Newfoundland based band). We counted 12 moose in one afternoon and made memories to last a lifetime.

What one thing in Canada should you experience at least once in your life?

The West coast of British Columbia by plane is a must do! Whether it’s a float plane flight between Victoria to Vancouver, or a small plane trip up the coast to Port Hardy, the coast is simply awe-inspiring. Looking down on the islands and coastal mountain range is a beautiful experience. It’s also recognized as a Signature Canadian Experience.
