8 Day* Customized Tour for Groups

There is nothing more memorable than visiting the beautiful Canadian Maritimes! Your tour will begin in Halifax, which is known for the world’s second-largest natural harbor and is the lively hub of Atlantic Canada. It is best known for its historical charm, community spirit, fresh seafood and incredible natural landscapes. You will gain an understanding of the Marine History of Nova Scotia, visit Pier 21 and learn about those of African descent landing in various historic Nova Scotian communities. You will travel up the coast to Peggy’s Cove, home to the most photographed lighthouse in all of Canada and spend the night in the postcard-perfect fishing village of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Experience first-hand what it was like to be one of the new artisans at the Port Royal National Historic Site. You will take a scenic drive in Cape Breton Island, where its Cabot Trail is a roadway encircling the island, passing forests and rugged coastline. The drive skirts by Cape Breton Highlands National Park, whose Skyline Trail footpath overlooks the Gulf of St. Lawrence, known for migratory whales. You will without a doubt leave this tour with memories and experiences that will last a lifetime, and endless photos of Canada’s beautiful Maritime province, Nova Scotia!
