This trip takes you to some of the east coast’s prettiest towns, best attractions and incredible national and provincial parks.

Trip Highlights

•   Seeing the Bay of Fundy, home of the world’s highest tides, is an experience like no other. During low tide, you can walk among the towering ‘flowerpot’ rock formations carved by tidal erosion at Hopewell Rocks. During high tide, it’s possible to see whales from the shore. Oh, and it has 300 million-year-old dinosaur fossils too.

•   Visit the World Heritage listed town of Lunenburg. Its picturesque crayon-coloured wood houses not only make the Old Town the best surviving example of a British colonial town in North America, it makes it incredibly photogenic. Don’t forget your camera.

•   Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the east coast visiting five national and provincial parks: Prince Edward Island National Park, Caribou-Munroes Island Provincial Park, Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Gros Morne National Park and Terra Nova National Park.

•   Take in jaw-dropping views of steep cliffs and deep river canyons in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, then walk the earth’s red mantle in Newfoundland’s World Heritage designated national park, Gros Morne.

•   Explore the serene landscapes that beloved author, Lucy Maud Montgomery, called home and inspired her classic novel, Anne of Green Gables.

•   It’s hard not to fall in love with Eastern Canada’s warm local culture and stunning seaside towns. Enjoy a local brew at Alexander Keith’s on Halifax’s atmospheric waterfront, then spend time in the oldest city in North America, St. John’s.

Itinerary & Notes
Touch down in beautiful Halifax, the capital of the maritime province of Nova Scotia. Breath in the fresh ocean air as you make your own way to the hotel. Your tour begins with a welcome meeting at 6pm where you’ll meet your tour leader and fellow travellers. Afterwards, enjoy a free evening to explore the gorgeous Halifax waterfront. Once the gateway into Canada for over a million European immigrants, today, the historic boardwalk is a lively hub of shops, galleries, restaurants, bars and in the warmer months, tall ships. It’s a great place to sample some fresh local seafood, and if you’re lucky, local music as well. If you find you’re overwhelmed by the dining choices on offer, your tour leader can suggest some local favourites.
