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.

Robin Esrock's stories have been published in over a dozen major newspapers worldwide. He is also the creator and co-host of the 40-part television series Word Travels, seen on OLN and CityTV in Canada, on National Geographic International, and on Travel Channel in 100 countries and 21 languages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic travel guide to Canada! I learned so much about my country from this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this book When I picked up a copy of this book, I was pretty excited to learn about all that Canada has to offer and start building my own national bucket list. What I soon discovered was that Canada was a back drop for the most amazing story telling. Robin Esrock writes with passion, enthusiasm and love. His stories captured my imagination, made me giggle and sometimes blush. I entered the world of a seasoned writer with a flare for comedy and thrilling life. Thank you Robin for inspiring my trips, not only in Canada but abroad. I look forward to your next adventures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing book for an amazing country Not really a guidebook, more of a personal journey to some incredible places, activities and characters. I had no idea there was so much richness in Canada! The author has been to over 100 countries, he knows what he's talking about and I often laughed aloud at his funny observations. Anyone who loves Canada or wants to learn more about our country will love this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book for a Great Country Saw this browsing for some inspiration, and found it. Never knew Canada had so much to offer. And love the fact that the writer takes you on a journey, introduces you to characters, and makes the places come alive. A great gift for anyone who loves, or wants to love, Canada.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I liked it Parts close to home were obvious, but if I was traveling to another province, I'd have this by my side. It's more about the journey. If you head to the west coast, put Canning's book alongside it for a double whammy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from obvious places I bought this book so my husband and i could do some sight seeing in our own country rather than traveling abroad. while looking in the Ontario section it said "support the blue jays" and "see a maple leafs vs. habs game" what an awful example of things to in ontario, that is not a one-of-a-kind travel experience. tell me about the blue mountains, the big nickle, the badlands, Algonquin park, or some of the other places that Ontario has. it made me think of how many places it wasn't telling me about, so my husband said to just take it back, it was a waste of money.
