We fly to Philadelphia and transfer to our hotel.
This afternoon we arrive in Halifax where we’ll be met by deluxe motorcoach and transfer to our hotel, The Barrington, for one night.
DAY 3 B,L
After breakfast, we’ll depart for a full day of exploration, beginning with a guided tour of Halifax, featuring historic homes, the bustling waterfront, and the Citadel. We visit the Fairview Lawn Cemetery, where those who died in the Titanic are buried, Halifax Public Gardens, and the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site. This star shaped fortification was completed in 1856 and stands on a hill overlooking downtown. Then we visit Peggy’s Cove, a rustic fishing village built around a snug harbor. With glacier-polished granite rocks, a quaint harbor, and the iconic, picturesque lighthouse on Rocky Point, windy Peggy’s Cove is the delight of artists and photographers. We visit Peggy’s Cove Light – the only light of its kind that used to double as the Peggy’s Cove post office before returning to Halifax tonight.
DAY 4 B,D
We drive northeast to Antigonish, home of the oldest continuous Highland games outside of Scotland. We continue to Baddeck and the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site, which houses a museum commemorating Bell’s work. We check in to Auberge Gisele's Inn for two nights.
DAY 5 B,L,D
Travel + Leisure magazine has called Cape Breton Island one of the world’s must-see islands. After breakfast, we’ll meet our local tour guide and spend the day touring along the world-famous Cabot Trail – a coastal highway described as one of the most spectacular drives in North America! In addition to a picnic lunch along the trail, enjoy stops in an Acadian fishing village and Ingonish, a popular resort town. The scenery is Nova Scotia’s finest with a striking resemblance to coastal Scotland. Keep a watch out for moose and bald eagles!
DAY 6 B
We leave Cape Breton and cross the Canso Strait. Visits to the Northumberland Fisheries Museum & Lobster Hatchery and the Hector Heritage Quay in Pictou are fascinating stops before we take the ferry to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and check into our hotel. Tonight we enjoy a performance of the musical Anne of Green Gables, PEI's most famous (but fictional) resident)
DAY 7 B
This morning, we’ll be met by our local tour guide for a full day’s tour of this picture-perfect Island. We begin with a guided tour of Charlottetown. We tour along the North Shore through “Anne’s Land” and PEI National Park, viewing the beautiful red sandy beaches and pastoral countryside. We’ll enjoy a visit to the L.M. Montgomery’s Cavendish National Historic Site/Green Gables Heritage Place, which commemorates the house and landscape that inspired renowned Canadian author L. M. Montgomery’s famous novel – Anne of Green Gables. In the afternoon, we arrive at the PEI Preserve Company, where we can taste the wonderful jams like Raspberry Champagne, and Strawberry Grand Marnier, enjoy a cup of tea, and hear maritime music.
DAY 8 B
We take leave of Anne’s Prince Edward Island via the nine-mile-long Confederation Bridge to the mainland and the Cape Jourimain Nature Centre. A guide shows us the many delights of this multi-dimensional park. Afterwards, we take the road back to Halifax to lodge one night before returning home.
Day 9 B
Following breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head for the airport and our departure home, taking with us many wonderful memories and stories of our adventure to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
