Most Canadians think of travel as a way to escape the snow, cold, and dreary winter skies. But Robin Esrock loves all that our eastern provinces have to offer visitors, and so will you! The Great Atlantic Canada Bucket List highlights the best travel experiences to be had on Canada’s East Coast.
Not your typical travel guide, Robin’s recommendations encompass outdoor adventure and natural wonders as well as the unique food, culture, and history of the Maritimes. Categorized by province, The Great Atlantic Canada Bucket List will give you a first-hand perspective on:
• Ziplining over a waterfall in New Brunswick.
• Harvesting an iceberg for a Newfoundland cocktail.
• Exploring Nova Scotia’s Cabot Trail.
• Walking the seabed beneath Hopewell Rocks.
• Cycling across Canada’s island province.
• Rafting a tidal wave in the Bay of Fundy.
Esrock (The Great Canadian Bucket List), host of the 40-part TV series World Travels, aims to discover the best and most unique experiences in each place he visits. The Atlantic provinces are the focus of his latest book of Canadian bucket lists, providing readers with a slim but valuable guide to exploring the things that make the East Coast special. He covers the famous highlights such as New Brunswick's Bay of Fundy, home to the world's highest tide, and the Anne of Green Gables house in Prince Edward Island, but also many less conventional spots. Esrock suggests staying in lighthouses in Newfoundland and Labrador, rafting a tidal wave in Nova Scotia, and harvesting sea plants in Prince Edward Island. The adventurous can lower themselves face-first off a cliff in New Brunswick, while the more cautious tour the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Esrock writes in an amusing, cheerful style, low on stuffy adjectives and high on action. He's experienced everything he recommends and often includes his own photos. This guide is perfect for those planning a trip or readers who just want to become better acquainted with the wonders of Atlantic Canada. Hilary McMahon, Westwood Creative Artists.
