Atlantic & Maritime Canada Holidays

Bordering the wild Atlantic ocean, the charming provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador promise a unique adventure. Drift into the slow pace of life, delve into the culture, uncover historical attractions and soak up the vistas of rugged coasts, sandy beaches and majestic mountains.

In New Brunswick history, culture and outdoor fun are all at your fingertips, but perhaps the top attraction is the incredible Bay of Fundy where you can witness the highest tides in the world or go whale watching and spot humpbacks. There are also over 50 perfect beaches and urban delights in Saint John and Fredericton.

Finding great places to go in Nova Scotia – or New Scotland is easy, finding time to see it all is the tricky part. No point of the lobster-shaped province is more than 35 miles from the sea and its hauntingly lonely beaches are one of its finest draws. Explore the bustling capital of Halifax; be charmed by Peggy’s Cove and its world-famous lighthouse; discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Town Lunenburg; the unsurpassed beauty of Kejimkujik National Park; and take a drive along the scenic Cabot Trail in Cape Breton Highlands National Park.

Prince Edward Island may be Canada’s smallest province but it certainly packs a punch. It’s the home of ‘Anne of Green Gables’, green pastoral landscapes, red sand beaches, 25 stunning golf courses, a charming island way of life and fabulous fresh seafood.

The remote region of Newfoundland & Labrador is your go to place for outdoor adventures, particularly in the enigmatic beauty of UNESCO World Heritage listed Gros Morne National Park. See also vibrant St John’s, Cape Spear Lighthouse National Historic Site and the incredible frosty giants of Iceberg Alley.
