Four Canadian experiences featured on The World's Ultimate Bucket List

Apr 18 2018, 3:28 am

Canada is one of the most beautiful countries in the world – if not the most beautiful.

So it really comes as no surprise that when Flight Network put together what they deem “The World’s Ultimate Bucket List,” Canadian experiences had their rightful places throughout the list.

Placed alongside things like “go island hopping in Greece” and “visit the Egyptian Pyramids” are four (and a half) experiences that can be crossed off from right here at home.

Naturally, “see the Northern Lights” has a place on the list, along with “visit the Canadian Rocky Mountains,” “watch polar bears roam,” and “stay in an ice hotel.”

If you plan properly, you could probably knock all four of those out in one trip!

According to Flight Network, they consulted with over 800 travel journalists, bloggers, editors, and agencies before putting the bucket list together.

“By consulting the world’s top travel professionals, Flight Network has produced the most reliable and precise bucket list for the modern era  — meant to captivate and inspire travellers all over the world,” they state in the lead up to the list.

Oh, and that half-counted experience we were talking about earlier? Well, one of the things on the bucket list is “take an Alaskan cruise,” and while that is quite obviously occurring in, you know, Alaska, many cruises from Vancouver take off to those more northern shores, so we think it should count as at least a little bit Canadian.

Here’s the list in full – see how many of these experiences you’ve already crossed off, and how many more you still have to go!
