Wonders of the Maritimes & Scenic Cape Breton
Discover the heart of Canada’s Atlantic seacoast on this wonderful vacation. Begin your trip with a visit to Peggy’s Cove, a charming fishing village, before heading to Lunenburg, a picturesque town on the coast and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll also see the sights in Halifax before moving on to Moncton, New Brunswick. A definite highlight of this vacation will be your visit to Hopewell Rocks, home to the wildest tides in the world that can reach as high as 52 feet! Then, taking the 8-mile long Confederation Bridge, enjoy views of the Northumberland Strait, and arrive at Prince Edward Island, welcomed over a lobster dinner. The provincial capital of Charlottetown on this island envelops you with coastal beauty. Prince Edward Island, setting for the popular Anne of Green Gables novel, paints a picture you’ll never forget. Discover the Ceilidh Trail, where the first Scottish Highlanders made their mark, and then on to Cape Breton, which bears a surprising resemblance to Scotland’s landscape and seacoast. Keep your camera ready as you embark on the Cabot Trail, one of the most scenic drives in the world, and take in the Acadian culture and pride carried on the fresh island breeze. On your way back to Halifax, enjoy the scenic drive, stopping at Jeddore Oyster Pond to learn about the fisherman’s culture here—an incredible vacation!
