Anne of Green Gables would still recognize her Prince Edward Island homeland. It’s a picture-perfect, rural countryside. Cape Breton Island’s rugged coastline and abundant wildlife provide dramatic sightseeing. Picturesque fishing villages and historic settlements captivate us in maritime Canada. This tour is a feast for the eyes, the palette, and the nature-and-sea-lover.
We fly to Halifax, Nova Scotia, where we lodge at the Barrington Hotel for two nights.
DAY 2 B,L
This morning’s guided tour of Halifax features historic homes, the bustling waterfront, and the Citadel. Halifax was founded in 1749 because of its easily defended harbor. The first fort was built where the current one, Fort George, now stands. 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. After lunch, we have more time to explore the village.
DAY 3 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 into Auberge Gisele’s Inn, our home-away-from-home for two nights, freshen up, and enjoy dinner together.
DAY 4 B,L,D
Travel + Leisure Magazine has called Cape Breton Island, home to the world-renowned Cabot Trail, one of the world’s must-see islands. A local guide joins us today for our tour of Cabot Trail. The scenery is Nova Scotia’s finest with a striking resemblance to coastal Scotland. Along the way, we enjoy an included picnic lunch. Keep a watch out for moose and bald eagles! We return to our hotel in the late afternoon, then enjoy a lobster dinner.
DAY 5 B
We leave Cape Breton and cross the Canso Strait. Visits to the Northumberland Fisheries Museum & Lobster Hatchery and the Hector Heritage Quay are fascinating stops before we take the ferry to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. We check into the Holman Grand Hotel for two nights. This evening, we enjoy a performance of the musical Anne of Green Gables, PEI’s most famous (and fictional) resident.
A local guide joins us for a tour of Charlottetown, North Rustico Fishing Village, the PEI National Park, and the Green Gables Heritage Place. Along the way, we will stop for stunning views of Cavendish Beach, red sandstone cliffs, and more. 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.
We take leave of Anne’s Prince Edward Island via the nine-mile-long Confederation Bridge to the mainland and the Cape Jourimain Nature Center. A guide shows us the many delights of this multi-dimensional park. Afterwards, we take the road back to Halifax to lodge one night. The historic waterfront awaits us this evening.
DAY 8 B
It is time to leave beautiful Northeast Canada and return home, with memories of our beautiful maritime adventure.
