The Great Western Canada Bucket List


Most Canadians think of travel as a way to escape the snow, cold, and dreary winter skies. But Robin Esrock loves all that our western provinces have to offer visitors, and so will you! The Great Western Canada Bucket List highlights the best travel experiences to be had on Canada’s West Coast.

Through nature, food, culture, and history, as well as a few adrenaline rushes and some quirky Canadiana, Robin's personal quest to tick off the very best of Alberta and British Columbia packs in enough adventure for a lifetime. Inside you'll get a first-hand perspective on:

• Tracking the spirit bear in B.C.'s Great Bear Rainforest.

• Wine-tasting in the Okanagan.

• Hunting for dinosaurs in Alberta's Badlands.

• Diving a sunken battleship.

• Snorkeling with salmon.

• Getting spiritual with heli-yoga in the Rockies.

• RVing the Icefields Parkway.


One of Canada's top travel writers, and definitely one of our biggest personalities.
