Newfoundland and Nova Scotia

Perched on the edge of North America, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia - Canada’s two most easterly provinces - are unlike the rest of Canada in their cultural traditions. The country’s closest points to Europe, the locals here are descendants from English, Scottish and Irish settlers. Explore Nova Scotia’s rugged southern coastline, cruise the scenic, iceberg-studded waters to spot dolphins and seabirds and walk in UNESCO-listed Gros Morne National Park, spending time in the vibrant cities and pretty towns along the way.
