2. Put your mouse over your name, and a menu will pop up with your name, Edit My Profile, and Logout
3. Click “Edit My Profile”
4. At the bottom of the page, just before the Submit button, is a field that says Book Code.
5. Enter the code (found in the front of the book), hit submit, and voila!
Why is my favourite experience not here?
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.
Is this a TV show?
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 channel, The Great Canadian Bucket List is not a TV series. Yet.
How did Robin choose items on the Bucket List?
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.
Will Robin be adding new experiences?
Most definitely, and he welcomes your suggestions. Robin was limited in terms of what he could cover and where he could get to.
Why are some experiences on the website not in the book?
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.
Are you a travel agency?
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.

What should I bring on my experience?
Each adventure is different. Some essential gear is recommended on each experience page, but it’s worth following the links provided for more information.
Was Robin paid to feature experiences?
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.
Why are there ads for Tourism Boards?
Robin worked closely with every provincial tourism board in the country. His budget was extremely limited, and all support was accepted gratefully. Some tourism board partners have paid to advertise on the site, which helped absorb some of the costs of development. They want you to have a good time, it’s as simple as that.
