Canadians typically look abroad to escape the seemingly endless snow, cold, and dreary skies. Yet with millions of inbound international tourists, and a booming domestic tourism market, it's time to shine a light on the extraordinary destinations and activities one must do, and can only do, in Canada before you die. Renowned travel writer and TV host Robin Esrock spent years visiting every province and territory to craft the definitive national Bucket List. Having travelled to over 100 countries on 6 continents, he never expected Canada to offer so much, and neither will you.

This isn't your typical travel guide--it is an inspiration for your next trip. Spanning the outdoors, food, culture, history, adrenalin, and quirky, Robin's personal journey to tick off the very best of Canada features well-known and hidden gems, infused with humour, trivia, advice, and unforgettable characters.

Categorized by province and territory, The Great Canadian Bucket List gives readers a firsthand perspective on:
o Tracking the Spirit Bear in B.C.'s Great Bear Rainforest;
o Ziplining over a massive waterfall in New Brunswick;
o Digging for dinosaur bones in Alberta's Badlands;
o Harvesting an iceberg for a refreshing Newfoundland cocktail;
o Finding the best smoked meat sandwich inMontreal;
o Floating in Canada's very own Dead Sea;
o Cracking the nation's own Da Vinci Code inWinnipeg;
o Hiking the tundra under Nunavut's midnight sun;
o and much more!

The book also unlocks an accompanying website with extensive added-value content, including practical information, videos, galleries, gear guides, recommended hotels, restaurants, and tour operators. A full range of social media channels--Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Pinterest--will allow readers to join the community of Bucket Listers, sharing their own experiences as they follow Robin's trail. Guaranteed to stoke up the national debate and become a legacy for generations to come, The Great Canadian Bucket List is designed to inspire, entertain, and direct both locals and visitors to our truly remarkable country.
