Summary

Discover the heart of Canada’s Atlantic seacoast on this wonderful vacation. This tour begins and ends in Halifax with overnights also in Moncton, Charlottetown, and Baddeck. Along the way, you’ll experience scenic drives, visit beautiful national parks and quaint fishing villages, and enjoy special adventures arranged by Globus.

Tour highlights include a visit to Peggy’s Cove, a charming fishing village with the picturesque lighthouse (one of the world’s most photographed places), and Lunenburg, a small port town and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn about the highest and wildest tides at Hopewell Rocks, where time and tides (up to 50 feet) have created distinctive sandstone formations topped with trees. On Cape Breton Island, keep your camera ready as you embark on the Cabot Trail, one of the most scenic drives in the world, and visit Cape Breton Highlands National Park, resembling the Scottish coastal regions. More scenic beauty awaits you in Prince Edward Island National Park, famous for its wind-sculpted dunes and sandy beaches. Also enjoy a ferry ride across the Northumberland Strait.

Globus has arranged many out-of-the-ordinary experiences throughout this Eastern Canada tour. For example, visit Sugar Moon Farm for a lunch, tour and tasting of a traditional sugar camp treat. You’ll be treated to a traditional Ceilidh—a folk music party—on Prince Edward Island and a traditional Nova Scotia breakfast at Peggy’s Cove.

From the gorgeous scenery and quaint fishing villages to the fun experiences, this tour through Eastern Canada is sure to delight all of your senses!
