Fresh air and coastal scenery
Our Atlantic Canada holidays promise some of the country’s most dramatic and invigorating coastal scenery, with a compelling mix of natural attractions, heritage and cultural activities.
Nova Scotia’s coastline is dotted with charming gingerbread-style cottages and lighthouses overlooking picturesque bays and the wild Atlantic. Humpback whale breach the surface of the waves during the summer months, and the sunsets here are simply epic. We recommend a visit to Halifax to sample its flourishing foodie culture and eclectic music scene.
Bordering Nova Scotia to the north, New Brunswick is a cultural melting pot with French Canadian, British, Irish and Scottish influences, as well as the First Nations Mi’kmaq and Maliseet. Whale-watchers can identify up to 12 species frequenting these waters, while the seafood in New Brunswick is perhaps the finest in Canada.
With its sprawling primeval landscape reaching up to the Arctic Circle, and a temperate climate that suits a host of outdoor activities all year-round, Newfoundland & Labrador is often referred to as ‘Big Land’. Life here certainly moves at a different pace to the rest of Canada, so take the opportunity to kick off your shoes and relax.
Things will pick up for you again on Prince Edward Island. Vividly colourful, especially during the autumn months, this is one of Canada’s great natural wonders. The sensational scenery is matched by a range of exhilarating experiences, from popular food festivals to playing a few holes on some of the country’s best and most scenic golf courses.
