The Maritimes

Tour Highlights

With spectacular coastlines, picturesque villages and distinguished culture, the Maritimes are sure to delight every visitor.   
On this fun-filled tour, we discover many of the wonders the Atlantic Provinces have to offer.
In Nova Scotia we visit the famous lighthouse at Peggy's Cove, the Fisheries Museum in Lunenburg and the historic Fortress of Louisburg. During our stay in the capital of Halifax we are entertained at the Grafton Street Dinner Theatre, see the Exhibition Hall at Pier 21 and have a chance to sample the local beer during our tour of Alexander Keith's Brewery! 

In St. John, New Brunswick we explore the historic Loyalist Trail, the remarkable Reversing Falls and the scenic Fundy Trail on the Bay of Fundy (which boasts some of the highest tides in the world).   

Prince Edward Island, Canada's smallest province and home of Anne of Green Gables, is renowned for its red soil, sand dunes and 800 km. of spotless white sand beaches. During our visit to Charlottetown, our Confederation Capital, we learn the important role this province played in the early history of Canada. In P.E.I. we will enjoy a performance of “Anne of Green Gables” at the Confederation Theatre.

No trip to the Maritimes would be complete without a tour around the awe-inspiring Cabot Trail in scenic Cape Breton. The trail loops around the northern tip of Cape Breton Island, passing though charming communities and offering breathtaking scenery.

As well as being one of the most beautiful and historic areas in North America, the spirit of hospitality found in the Maritimes is legendary.  Come join us as we embark on an adventure that promises unforgettable experiences and memories to treasure.
