The world is full of amazing things to see and do, but as all Canadians know, there are plenty wonders right in our backyard.  If you were putting a list together of all the things in the world to do, I am certain there would be plenty of things you can do right in Canada.  Thankfully, this website has put the list together for you, and Canada makes a few appearances.

The Flight Network has put together their “World’s Ultimate Bucket List” and it is full of amazing journeys across the planet.  The list includes everything from drinking a beer at Oktoberfest to visiting the Great Wall of China and almost everything in between.  If you wanted a list of things to do in your lifetime, it is a pretty handy guide.

Canada makes four appearances on the Ultimate Bucket List with some of our greatest experiences.  Of course, everyone should see the Northern Lights at least once in their lifetime, same with visiting polar bears.  The Flight Network adds that the Canadian Rocky Mountains are a must-see, and everyone should spend a night in an ice hotel.

We have to agree that these are musts, but we would also like to add eating poutine in Montreal.
