New Brunswick & Prince Edward Island

14 night fly drive from £2,589 per person including flights, car rental and accommodation

Coastlines, superb cuisine, beautiful landscapes, mighty rivers and the great outdoors, this lesser travelled part of North America is a hidden gem for those looking to be at one with nature and get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Begin your journey in Halifax, Nova Scotia a seaport from wooden ship days, where schooners can still be seen in the harbour next to the busy restored waterfront. Your next stop is charming Prince Edward Island – Canada’s smallest and greenest province. Cradled on the waves of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, PEI is known for the vivid colours of its gently rolling landscape, surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and red sandstone cliffs.
Heading back to the mainland you reach New Brunswick – characterised by sprawling vistas, mighty rivers and the great outdoors. Stroll the boardwalk through a rare sand dune, hike majestic trails of Fundy National Park, relax on endless saltwater beaches, absorb the unique Acadian heritage, or take a whale watching tour from Saint Andrews. You can even walk on the ocean floor among giant rock formations at Hopewell Rocks carved by the power of the Bay of Fundy tides – the highest tides in the world.

From the time of its founding in 1749 through the 19th century, Halifax was one of four principal overseas naval stations in the British Empire. The Citadel, overlooking the harbour, has been restored to the mid-Victorian period with a living history program.

It is Canada’s last remaining ocean “immigration shed” and a national centre for celebrating Canada’s rich cultural diversity.

Nova Scotia Cabot Trail

We had a fantastic holiday in Nova Scotia. It was even better than we had expected. The weather was great, only one drizzly day & some very heavy rain one night when we were at Truro.
