Overview


Spend 10 days discovering the stunning beauty, history, and people of the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. Experience the vast beauty, sprawling landscapes, charming towns, and welcoming locals. A rich fishing history and strong maritime traditions allow these communities the ability to trace their heritage back to European colonists of 1605.

First explore Halifax—Nova Scotia's bustling capital—during a panoramic city tour including visits to the Citadel National Historic Site and Fairview Cemetery, the final resting place for 150 victims of the Titanic. During a tour of the south shore, admire the stunning landscape of Lunenburg—a fishing village and one of only two towns in North America designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Continue to Peggy's Cove to see its famous lighthouse. En route to Digby, stop at the 2nd UNESCO site, the national historic site of Grand-Pré—which commemorates the area as the center of Acadian settlement from 1682 to 1755.

We will take a boat ride to President Franklin Roosevelt's summer home, Campobello Island, and experience a private guided tour and "Tea with Eleanor," learning how the Roosevelt family impacted this quaint area. Visit the Bay of Fundy, which is one of the Seven Wonders of North America due to its tide differential and geological treasures like fossils and minerals. Our group will explore Hopewell Rocks, situated in Fundy National Park, on one of three, custom tailored walks/hikes.


The 186 mile tour that makes up the famous Cabot Train is sure to delight, and our exploration will include a guided hike through the striking landscape, visit to the intriguing village of Cheticamp and a visit to Cape Breton Highlands National Park. End your trip with a lively "kitchen party" in Cape Breton, complete with live local music and dancing, an authentic reflection of this area.
