Description

With a career that has spanned the world, Robin Esrock was amazed at the wealth of unmissable experiences in Canada — and you will be, too.

On his personal quest to check off the best of his home country, travel writer and host Robin Esrock catalogues must-sees, including nature, food, culture, history, adrenaline rushes, and quirky Canadiana. After spending years crafting the definitive Canadian Bucket List, he’s packed in enough for a lifetime, at least.

A few of the highlights include:

  • Ziplining over a giant waterfall in New Brunswick
  • Digging for dinosaur bones in Alberta’s badlands
  • Harvesting an iceberg to make a refreshing Newfoundland cocktail
  • Floating in Canada’s own Dead Sea
  • Cracking a Canadian Da Vinci Code in Winnipeg
  • Hiking the tundra under Nunavut’s midnight sun

The companion website presents extensive bonus content: on-the-ground info, videos, gear guides, hotel and tour recommendations, and more. Join the community of Bucket Listers sharing their experiences as they follow Robin’s trail.
