Holidays in Atlantic Canada

The Atlantic coast of Canada is home to a unique culture and a wealth of sights perfect for exploring on a dedicated touring holiday. Closer to Europe than any other part of Canada, the four provinces of Atlantic Canada promise a fascinating and beautiful holiday experience without a lengthy flight time. New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador and Nova Scotia are distinctly different but equally memorable, for their rugged and spectacular scenery, fascinating colonial heritage and characterful wildlife. Discover the pastoral splendour so vividly depicted in Anne of Green Gables or endlessly photogenic coastlines dotted with whitewashed lighthouses. Throughout Atlantic Canada, browse the antique shops and farmers’ markets of a host of quaint seaside villages. Keep a look out for breaching whales and thousands of nesting puffins. And enjoy a mouthwatering variety of fresh seafood, from succulent oysters to delicious lobster. Just five or six flying hours away, Atlantic Canada awaits.

New Brunswick
 
Scenic New Brunswick is a haven for both outdoor enthusiasts and those interested in Canadian history. A host of driving routes ideal for taking in the natural beauty of the province crisscross the region, while numerous towns and cities provide a variety of cultural delights for the perfect holiday.

The Capital City of Fredericton was once a British garrison and is where you will find attractions such as the Kings Landing Historical Settlement, the 19th-century Christ Church Cathedral, and the Historic Garrison District featuring local artisan displays and shops. Saint John is New Brunswick's largest city, a port city located along the Bay of Fundy, and a popular destination for tourists who flock to the City Market, the New Brunswick Museum and the nearby Irving Nature Park.

Elsewhere, St Andrews is the oldest seaside resort town in Canada and a wonderful place to stop for lunch overlooking the phenomenal Bay of Fundy. The Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world with 100 billion tones of seawater flowing in and out twice a day creating magnificent experiences along this coastal route including whale watching. Also located along the Bay of Fundy, and a must see, are the iconic Hopewell Rocks; giant rock formations have been carved from the coastline by the power of the Bay of Fundy’s tides.

Newfoundland and Labrador

Representing the easternmost part of North America, Newfoundland and Labrador is a province of firsts. It is where the Vikings first landed in 1000 AD, where the sun rises first and where Italian navigator John Cabot made the first European contact with North America after the Vikings. Yet, despite its rich history, Newfoundland and Labrador is the youngest of the Canadian provinces.

Some of the attractions and sites of note you can visit on touring holidays here include the spectacular Gros Morne National Park, Iceberg Alley, L'Anse aux Meadows - a Viking settlement dating back over 1,000 years - and the Port aux Choix National Historic Site. The Witless Bay Ecological Site is a must-see for wildlife lovers due to the fact it is home to over half a million Atlantic puffins.

Nova Scotia

Come and explore Nova Scotia, a world of natural beauty, sea-spun warmth and a way of life shaped by founding cultures whose love of life is legendary. The scenery is magnificent. The food is fabulous. And, from the moment you arrive, you'll feel like family.

Nova Scotia is fringed with more than 4,750 miles of diverse coastline, and its offers an equally extensive range of holiday experiences, from exploring the historic seaport of Halifax to drinking in the views at Peggy's Cove, one of North America's most photographed villages; touring the magical coastal Cabot Trail to celebrating a tapestry of cultures in tradition, art and music, confirming why the world sings the praises of Nova Scotia's salmon, lobster and Digby scallops to the accompaniment of award-winning local wine.

Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest and greenest province, and it is known for the vivid colours of its gently rolling landscape. Fill your days by meandering through antique shops, farmers' markets and pastoral villages where you can sample delicious culinary treats fresh from the ocean.

History envelopes you as you stroll the streets of Charlottetown, the birthplace of Canada's confederation and the Island's capital city. Take a walk to Peake's Wharf where merchants combine the best entertainment, shopping, and dining. For leisurely strolling, choose any of the sandy beaches and let your feet be caressed by warm, gentle waves.

Cycle along the Confederation Trail were you will find green pastures, highlighted by deep-red soil and bright blue of rivers, all punctuated by picturesque rural communities. Enjoy the friendliness of Islanders at community festivals, cultural events and at the Confederation Centre stage, where you can see Anne of Green Gables – the Musical,™ Canada's longest running musical.
