A rich fishing history and strong maritime traditions allow these communities the ability to trace their heritage back to European colonists of 1605. Enjoy Nova Scotia's beautiful capital, Halifax, during a panoramic city tour including visits to the Citadel National Historic Site and Fairview Cemetery, the final resting place for 150 victims of the Titanic. During a tour of the South Shore, explore the stunning landscape of the charming fishing village, Peggy's Cove. Continue on to picturesque Lunenburg—one of only two towns in North America designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See the Bay of Fundy, which features geological treasures like fossils and minerals, and has the highest tidal range in the world. Spot for whales during a nature cruise to Campobello Island and experience a traditional lobster supper and learn about local fishing traditions. Visit the Anne of Green Gables Heritage House on Prince Edward Island, and explore the capital, Charlottetown. Extend your adventure in Canada’s great northeast with time to explore Cape Breton and its beloved national park. The sweeping coastline provides endless scenery, a variety of hiking trails, and the freshest seafood available. Indulge in the area’s storied history, engaging locals, and lively culture and music.
