OVERVIEW

New Brunswick is blessed with fresh seafood, the warmest salt water in Canada, the world’s highest tides, Acadian culture, untouched nature, musical talent, and countless hidden gems throughout the province. Friendly people with unique cultures can’t wait to show you the jaw-dropping beauty and all around fun of this place. Travelling south on to our next adventure, almost completely surrounded by ocean, the beautiful province of Nova Scotia. A place where you can feel your pace fall in sync with the rhythm of the sea, as the clean salt air breathes life into an afternoon.

NOVA SCOTIA

For many, Nova Scotia evokes images of seascapes. To the south and east, the Atlantic crashes against rocky outcrops or washes placidly over white sand. To the northwest, Fundy tides—the highest in the world—recede to reveal mudflats, then rush back in, raising the sea level by more than 50 feet. To the north, warm, relatively shallow Northumberland Strait flows between Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, providing a livelihood for fishermen on both sides. Nova Scotia is one of the world’s largest exporters of seafood, particularly lobsters. But the province is much more than its coastline alone; its coastal capital, Halifax, is a lively and attractive business and tourism hub.

NEW BRUNSWICK

New Brunswick’s varied landscape, coastal setting and charming, small-town atmosphere makes it a traveller’s delight. On the southern coast of New Brunswick is the Bay of Fundy, which is surrounded with sandstone cliffs and warm sandy beaches, and is home to Fundy National Park and Grand Manan Island. Situated a little further south is the charming town of St. Andrews, which has the distinction of being one of Canada’s oldest seaside resort towns.

DAY THREE – FIVE
  After a buffet breakfast we will depart the hotel and follow along the Fundy Coastal Drive. Hopewell Rocks should prove to be one of the highlights of our tour. Curious rock formations have been formed by the massive tides. We have hired a local guide to educate us on this fascinating attraction, which made the short list on the “New Seven Wonders of the World”. Our destination tonight is Halifax. Our hotel for the next 3 nights is the Delta Barrington. Dinner is included tonight. We will be having the Gala Buffet which includes an optional lobster dinner for those who are interested. 
  Over the next few days we will enjoy all that Halifax has to offer. Each morning you will enjoy a hot breakfast. One morning we will join a local guide for an informative and fun-filled ride through the streets of Halifax to learn about the history and culture of the city. Hear of Halifax’s war years and of the exploits and heroism of the citizens who lived through the devastating Halifax Explosion. Visit the Fairview Lawn Cemetery to learn about the local connection to the Titanic disaster. From tales of disaster and triumph to remarkable stories of everyday life, discover the people and places that have made Halifax one of the most unique and captivating cities in North America! 
  The balance of the day and evening are free to explore on your own. On Monday, we travel to Peggy’s Cove, one of the most popular stops in Atlantic Canada. The renowned fishing village and famous lighthouse set on rocky shores are a photographer’s paradise. Despite its popularity, this tiny fishing village has been able to keep the same relaxed atmosphere that has made it famous. The scenery is spectacular. The afternoon is yours and then we will meet for a wonderful included dinner.

From the ocean floor to the dance floor, this dynamic port city is equal parts charm and adventure. Picturesque waterfront. Beautifully preserved architecture. 
  Bustling city farmers’ markets. Saint John’s striking historic downtown core has an intriguing past with a modern edge—quaint, steep narrow streets lined with great mix of shops, boutiques and an exciting nightlife and culinary scene—urban bistros, lively pubs, fine urban dining, authentic ethnic eateries, and, of course, some of the most delicious seafood around. We will be spending the next 2 nights at the Delta Brunswick in St. John. The rest of the afternoon and evening are yours to discover.
