Canadian Maritimes: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island August 2 - 11, 2019
Our tours of Canadian destinations have clearly indicated that W&L travelers enjoy exploring our friendly neighbor to the north. With its extraordinary landscapes, fascinating history, and strong cultural roots, Eastern Canada is surely one of the most rewarding destinations for educational travel in North America. We're pleased to return with a remarkable 11-day journey to the Canadian Maritimes, the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. As the W&L Traveller well knows from previous travels there, the splendid natural beauty of this region, its distinctive maritime traditions, and engaging local populations together make this region of Canada altogether unforgettable.
As you'll trace on the map here, we'll begin in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia's friendly capital, with a panoramic city tour, including visits to the Citadel National Historic Site and Fairview Cemetery, the final resting place for 150 victims of the RMS Titanic. During a tour of Nova Scotia's south shore, we'll admire the stunning landscape of Lunenburg, a charming fishing village and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Peggy's Cove, we'll visit its famous lighthouse. En route to Digby, we'll stop at the national historic site of Grand-Pré, which commemorates the Acadian settlement from 1682 to 1755.
Later in New Brunswick, we'll enjoy Tea with Eleanor on Campobello Island and learn how President and Mrs. Roosevelt made this quaint setting near Roosevelt Campobello National Park so memorable. Other wonders await, including national parks on Prince Edward Island and Cape Breton. Just remember to bring your camera and every anticipation of a wonderful time in one of North America's most appealing summer destinations.
