Spend 10 days discovering the stunning beauty, history, and people of the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. Experience the vast beauty, sprawling landscapes, charming towns, and welcoming locals. A rich fishing history and strong maritime traditions allow these communities the ability to trace their heritage back to European colonists of 1605. First explore beautiful Halifax--Nova Scotia's bustling capital--during a panoramic city tour including visits to the Citadel National Historic Site and Fairview Cemetery, the final resting place for 150 victims of the Titanic. During a tour of the south shore, admire the stunning landscape of Lunenburg--a charming fishing village and one of only two towns in North America designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Continue to Peggy's Cove to see its famous lighthouse. En route to Digby, stop at the national historic site of Grand-Pre--which commemorates the area as the center of Acadian settlement from 1682 to 1755. Set out on a panoramic city tour of Saint John, a charming port city on the Bay of Fundy, which is one of the Seven Wonders of North America due to its tide differential and geological treasures like fossils and minerals.
