A nation’s Bucket List is an organic document. It will grow, and one day, your experience might certainly be on it. Robin spent nearly two years travelling to all 10 provinces and 3 territories, polling locals, travel media and experts, and drawing on his considerable global experience.  He knows that many experiences slipped through the cracks, but hopes to add them in future editions.

The print version of The Great Canadian Bucket List includes a registration code to unlock ALL the experiences on the site.  After the events of 2020, Canadian tourism needed all the help it could get.  The site is now totally unlocked, all the content is available, and you don’t need to enter the code anymore.  

Some readers may recognize Robin as co-host of the 40-part TV series Word Travels, seen on OLN, CityTV, and Travel Channel and National Geographic worldwide. While video is integrated into most of the experiences online along with a sizable Youtube channelThe Great Canadian Bucket List is not a TV series.  Yet.

Robin has spent close on a decade visiting over 100 countries, ticking off all the new Wonders of the World, and several personal bucket lists.  When it came to creating Canada’s Bucket List, he looked for experiences that were exceptional, and experiences that were unique.  As a travel columnist and adventurer, it’s how he makes his living!  Then he polled other travel writers, experts, books and most importantly locals to fill in the gaps.

Most definitely, and he welcomes your suggestions. Robin was limited in terms of what he could cover and where he could get to.

The website was designed to compliment and enhance the book.  It includes experiences that belong in the book but didn’t make the cut due to timing, budgets and space.  Perhaps in the next edition!    But since the website is its own beast, new experiences will be added all the time.

No, this is not a travel agency. We have however partnered with Entree Canada, named by Condé Nast Traveler as the country’s premiere luxury tour operator. Email them to create a customized Bucket List for many of the experiences on offer in Western Canada.

There are no book tours scheduled at the moment, although Robin is frequently giving corporate talks about the very experiences in Canada.   Click here for more information.  

Each adventure is different.  Some essential gear is recommended on each experience page, but it’s worth following the links provided for more information.

All the items in The Great Canadian Bucket List were selected by Robin with editorial independence.  A Bucket List is only as faithful as the people who believe in it!  Robin makes convincing arguments for each item in the book, although some readers are bound to disagree.

The site ran ad-free for almost a decade.  Now updated, revised and redesigned, we are featuring adverts to help us absorb the cost and keep the site running to inspire bucket list dreams in the years ahead.
