The Atlantic provinces are one of the oldest parts of Canada, as it is where not only early European settlers landed but where the Vikings arrived in the 10th century. Alternatively known as the Maritimes these provinces are small in size, but great in history and sheer natural beauty. One of the benefits of their small land mass and close geographic location is that multiple destination can be combined to create a true Maritime experience. Among these beautiful provinces are some fascinating cities such as Halifax known for its picturesque architecture and incredible music scene. Learn of early settlers, Canada's World War II involvement and the fateful journey of the Titanic. Another Maritime destination that is sure to be of interest is L'Anse Aux Meadow in Newfoundland where the Vikings first settled North America. These are such two of the spectacular destinations in Canada's most eastern province which is home to, Charlottetown, Fredericton and St John's as well. Any tour to this area of Canada is sure to inspire imaginations as it will transport you into the Canada’s origins while surrounding you with the natural beauty of the region.


New Brunswick
New Brunswick’s three unique coastlines, miles of untouched nature and panoramic views will capture hearts and camera lenses, alike. The bustling cities and charming villages each adorn unique culture and authentic cuisine. The infectious Acadian “joie de vivre” gets toes tapping. The Bay of Fundy is home to multiple UNESCO biosphere reserves and the highest tides in the world. These are best experienced at the famous Hopewell Rocks; where you can walk the ocean floor and 6 hours later, kayak the tides that have risen over four stories high.
Where the world’s highest tides are experienced twice daily; where the Acadian “joie de vivre” is infectious; where Canada’s warmest salt water beaches are found; where the abundance of nature causes relaxation; and where dinner is caught the same day it’s eaten. New Brunswick: simple pleasures and majestic natural wonders.


Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia is home to stunning natural beauty, an exciting and diverse culture, a rich heritage and breathtaking experiences. With iconic sites such as Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Halifax Citadel, Halifax’s star-shaped fortress, the Cape Breton Highland’s Skyline Trail, located along the Cabot Trail and our newest UNESCO Site, the Landscape of Grand Pré, in the Annapolis Valley, there is no shortage of world-class attractions to explore.
Outdoor enthusiasts can canoe in Keji or raft the tidal bore on the highest tides in the world. Culinary inspiration doesn’t stop with land and sea. Check out the wineries, microbreweries and microdistilleries around Nova Scotia. Or be in awe of 300 million years of Earth history at Joggins Fossil Cliffs.


Prince Edward Island
Prince Edward Island is one of Canada's premier vacation destinations and a truly unique location for visitors. The coastline offers some of the most stunning vistas in the world. The rolling green hills and scenic farmland keep visitors’ cameras busy as they explore unspoiled beauty. Whether it’s a relaxing day on the beach, a sea kayaking adventure, a round of golf, or an evening at the theatre there is something for everyone. Once visitors have worked up an appetite, local cuisine is everywhere. Visitors can enjoy the bounty of the land or impossibly fresh lobsters, oysters, and mussels at cafés and restaurants throughout the island.
Visitors to PEI can do more than just witness the Island way of life. They can live it, too, by taking part in Authentic Island Experiences which allow visitors to participate with chefs, artisans, fishermen, farmers, and musicians who want to share what they do. For a great vacation, add a little Island!


Newfoundland and Labrador
Newfoundland and Labrador are Canadas most eastern and recent province. They are one singular province despite the two names which represent the Island, Newfoundland, and the portion of the province connected to the mainland, Labrador. Both and mainland and the Island are lands of stark beauty with their rugged coastline and sparse landscape. They also are the first landing points for the European migration as Erik the Red and his Vikings arrived in is L'Anse Aux Meadow in the 10th century, long before Christopher Columbus and his Spanish explorers.
Visitors to this province are offered an array of activities from visiting the historic sight of is L'Anse Aux Meadow which is complete with models displaying of Viking life, to visiting the naturally stunning Gros Morne National Park, with towering inland fjords and lush park walking trails.
Travellers will also engage in the distrinct ‘Newfie’ culture which harks back to the Irish origins of most citizens by partakingin an age-old tradition - the ‘Screech In’ ceremony, featuring live traditional music, a Cod fish, and a taste of the famous Newfoundland Screech.
